Arrington, Cornyn, and Gonzales Pass Bill to Honor Fallen Border Patrol Agent

WASHINGTON, DC— This week, Rep. Jodey C. Arrington (TX-19) passed a bicameral, bipartisan bill with Rep. Tony Gonzales (TX-23) and Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) to honor Donna M. Doss, a Border Patrol Agent from TX-19 who was killed in the line of duty. The bill would rename the Rockspring Border Patrol Station in Agent Doss’s honor.

“Donna Doss valiantly served our country as a Border Patrol Agent for nearly 16 years and was tragically killed in the line of duty in 2019. Like many of her colleagues in law enforcement, Donna Doss is a hero for her courageous service to our country and sacrifice for her fellow man,” said Rep. Arrington.

“Officers like Agent Doss who are lost in the line of duty remind us of the courageous sacrifices that law enforcement, and their families, make each day,” said Sen. Cornyn. “Known for her commitment to public safety and her family, I’m proud to see that Agent Doss’ legacy of service to Texas will live on at the Border Patrol Station in Rocksprings in her honor.”

“Agent Doss embodied a life driven by public service and a commitment to her community, to Texas and to our country. Her death is a solemn reminder of the sacrifices our men and women in green - and their families - make every day. I am proud to have her legacy live on in our district by renaming the Rocksprings Border Patrol station in her honor,” said Rep. Gonzales.
