Statement from CBP Commissioner Kerlikowske on the Death of Agent Jose D. Barraza
I am deeply saddened by the death of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Jose D. Barraza. Earlier this morning, Agent Barraza, a canine handler, was involved in a vehicle accident with his canine, Vino. Agent Barraza was assigned to the Sierra Blanca Station of the Border Patrol’s Big Bend Sector. Our thoughts and prayers are with Agent Barraza’s family during this difficult time.
