Anderson Measure Dedicating a “Border Patrol Agent Robert W. Rosas Jr. Memorial Highway” Gains Final Legislative Approval
On July 23, 2009, United States Border Patrol Agent Robert Rosas Jr. was on duty along the Shockey Truck Trail in the Campo area of southeastern San Diego County when he was ambushed and killed by illegal immigrant smugglers looking to rob him. Four of the five assailants have been caught.
“Robert Rosas was a true hero who gave the ultimate sacrifice in safe-guarding our country,” said Senator Anderson. “Naming this stretch of Interstate 8 in Robert’s honor will serve as a constant reminder of the serious dangers posed by illegal immigration.”
Before his career as a Border Patrol Agent, Rosas served as a correctional officer at Centinela State Prison and as a reserve police officer for the El Centro Police Department. Rosas was born and raised in Imperial County and was often called the “Mayor of El Centro” because of his popularity. He was 30 years old and is survived by his wife Rosalie, their two children, Robert Mathew and Kayla Alyssa, as well as his brother, two sisters and his stepfather.
SCR 37 will designate a five mile stretch of I-8 near Kitchen Creek Road as the “Border Agent Robert W. Rosas Jr. Memorial Highway.” Signage for the highway will be paid for with private funds.
SCR 37 will soon be chaptered into law by the Secretary of State.
State Capitol – Senate Concurrent Resolution 37, a measure by Senator Joel Anderson (R – El Cajon) which would dedicate a portion of Interstate 8 in honor of a fallen U.S. Border Patrol Agent, passed the California State Assembly. It previously had been approved by the State Senate.
