STATEMENT BY THE PRESIDENT
Hillary and I were deeply saddened to learn of the death of Customs Senior Special Agent Manuel Zurita. We are eternally grateful for the courage and bravery of the men and women who protect us each and every day. This tragic accident painfully reminds us of the risks our law enforcement officials face keeping our country safe.
Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife and their four children as they deal with this devastating loss.
