BPA Javier Vega Jr.’s family receives support from members of Congress

On October 30, 2015, U.S. Senator John Cornyn (TX) and U.S. Representative Filemon Vela (TX) sent a letter to CBP Commissioner R. Gil Kerlikowske joining the call by the NBPC to “swiftly honor Agent Vega and his family by officially classifying his death as a line of duty fatality.” The letter lends further support by members of Congress to the call for a LODD designation that is long overdue.

The National Border Patrol Council thanks both members of Congress for taking the time to bring light to a very pressing and important matter. To read the letter: Sen Cornyn Rep Vela Ltr to CBP (Vega)
