Statement by Secretary Napolitano on Today’s Guilty Plea in the Case of Murdered Border Patrol Agent Robert Rosas

“Today’s

guilty plea makes it clear that those who harm our brave men and women in

uniform will be swiftly brought to justice and punished. I am confident

that any others involved in Agent Rosas’ tragic death will also be held

responsible, and I applaud the U.S. Attorney’s Office and the FBI, as well as

the Government of Mexico for their cooperation in this case. The devoted men

and women of Southern California’s law enforcement

and first responder community deserve our deepest appreciation for their

support of Agent Rosa’s family and his Border Patrol colleagues over the past

four months,” said Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano.
