Washington DC - Congressman Duncan Hunter introduced a resolution last evening in the U.S. House of Representatives to honor Border Patrol Agent Robert Rosas, who was killed in the line of duty near Campo, California, last week.  Agent Rosas was killed by gunfire in an area of the California-Mexico land border that is notorious for drug and human smuggling. 

"The tragic killing of Agent Rosas underscores the ever-present danger along the Southwest border and the tremendous responsibility undertaken by the brave men and women of our nation's Border Patrol," said Congressman Hunter.  "This resolution is intended to honor Agent Rosas for his service and sacrifice, as well as all those dedicated to preserving and protecting our borders.  My hope is that the House will move to consider this resolution in the coming days so that we, as a body, can pay tribute to Agent Rosas and his fellow Border Patrol officers."

The resolution, H.Res.681, is cosponsored by Representatives Brian Bilbray, Darrell Issa, Bob Filner, Susan Davis, Mark Souder and Lamar Smith.  A copy of the resolution is available by clicking  here .
