Rep. Tony Gonzales Introduces Legislation to Honor Fallen Border Patrol Agent
Congressman Tony Gonzales (TX-23) introduced legislation to rename the Border Patrol checkpoint located on U.S. Highway 90 West in Uvalde County, Texas as the James R. Dominguez Border Patrol Checkpoint. On July 19, 2012, Agent Dominguez was struck and killed by a passing vehicle along Highway 90 near Cline, Texas.
“Agent James R. Dominguez served at the Uvalde Station in the Del Rio Sector for 12 years before his tragic death while in the line of duty. He was a loving husband and father to four children and a faithful public servant. This legislation will ensure that Agent Dominguez’s legacy is memorialized for years to come,” said Congressman Tony Gonzales.
