The ultimate tribute to murdered Border Patrol agent Brian Terry would be to evict Eric Holder and Barack Obama from Washington. Until then, this is a nice memorial from the House.
Via GOP Rep. Darrell Issa:
ISSA STATEMENT ON PASSAGE OF BRIAN A. TERRY MEMORIAL ACT FROM HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
WASHINGTON. D.C. – Representative Darrell Issa (R-CA) today offered the following statement on the successful passage of the Brian A. Terry Memorial Act of 2011, H.R. 2668, from the House of Representatives by a unanimous vote. The Act, sponsored by Issa with nearly seventy cosponsors, will rename the U.S. Border Patrol Station in Bisbee, AZ to honor the memory of Agent Brian Terry who was gunned down in the line of duty by heavily-armed drug smugglers on December 14, 2010. He died the following day, December 15. Weapons found at the scene were connected to the Department of Justice’s reckless Fast & Furious Operation.
“The overwhelming support with which the Brian A. Terry Memorial Act passed the House of Representatives is a tribute to Agent Terry’s life of service and to the Border Patrol’s distinguished history of protecting America’s homeland.
“While many questions remain unanswered regarding the circumstances surrounding Agent Terry’s death, one thing is certain; he gave his life in defense of our country. This, the one year anniversary of Agent Terry’s passing, is a reminder of his sacrifice and of the risk his fellow agents take daily on our behalf.”
The Brian A. Terry Memorial Act of 2011 is awaiting action by the Senate.
