WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) released the following statement after his Donna M. Doss Memorial Act, which would rename the U.S. Border Patrol Station in Rocksprings, Texas in Agent Doss’s honor, passed the Senate. Agent Doss had served more than 15 years in the Border Patrol when she was killed in the line of duty on February 2, 2019 after she was struck by a vehicle in Tye, Texas.
“In addition to leading a distinguished career with the Border Patrol, Agent Doss was a loving wife, daughter, sister, and stepmother,” said Sen. Cornyn. “Her loss was another solemn reminder of the courageous sacrifices law enforcement officers and their families make every day, and I hope memorializing her service at the Border Patrol Station in Rocksprings will help honor her ultimate sacrifice.”
Sen. Cornyn honored Agent Doss on the Senate floor following her tragic death in February 2019 and first introduced this bill in September 2020.
This legislation is supported by the National Border Patrol Council and the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association (FLEOA).
