Islam times - US President Donald Trump has reiterated his plan to build a wall on the United States border with Mexico in the backdrop of an officer’s death.
 
The American commander in chief took to Twitter on Sunday to stress his resolve to move ahead with construction of the controversial wall.

"Border Patrol Officer killed at Southern Border, another badly hurt," he said. "We will seek out and bring to justice those responsible. We will, and must, build the Wall!"

Identified as Rogelio Martinez, the agent reportedly succumbed to wounds he sustained while on patrol in southwest Texas.

According to Elaine Duke, the acting secretary of Homeland Security, the agency is "fully supporting the ongoing investigation to determine the cause of this tragic event."

"The FBI is still actively investigating the incident and gathering the facts," FBI spokeswoman Jeanette Harper said.

The Republican president has vowed to crack down on immigration, in part by building the wall, but has failed to get his complete agenda through so far.
