“I’m deeply saddened to hear of the death of Border Patrol Agent Manuel Alvarez. Agent Alvarez put his life on the line so that others could be kept safe. He died while serving to protect our communities and our nation, and his death is felt by all Southern Arizonans. There’s no denying the danger agents face every time they put on the uniform, and for that, they deserve our constant and unwavering gratitude. My sincere condolences go out to Agent Alvarez’s family, friends, and loved ones during this difficult time.”
