AUSTIN – Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick issued this statement today following news that Texas DPS Special Agent and U.S. Marine Corps veteran Anthony Salas was killed in Maverick County in the line of duty:
“Please join Jan and me in prayer for Special Agent Anthony Salas and his family, after he was killed in an accident while working on the border. Texans know that our law enforcement officers deal with ever-present danger, every single day, to keep Texas communities safe. This is a somber reminder of that fact.
“President Biden’s open border policy and refusal to even admit there is a crisis on the border puts law enforcement lives at risk every day.”
