The director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement on Tuesday told the parents, friends and associates of slain ICE Agent Jaime Zapata that the U.S. and Mexican governments would "bring the long arm of the law down" on the drug smugglers who killed him and wounded his partner, Victor Avila.
"Together, we will look after our people. Together, we will continue to see that Jaime and Victor's work is done and that the rule of law triumphs over lawlessness and empty violence. There is no other way. Acquiescing to the rule of criminals consigns our children, Mexico's children to a hopeless and empty path," ICE Director John Morton said during a funeral Mass for the slain agent in Brownsville, Texas, attended by hundreds of mourners.
