WATCH: Officer Singh’s Brother Joins Trump to Back Border Wall

Reggie Singh, the brother of slain officer Ronil Singh, joined President Trump’s border security roundtable in McAllen, Texas on Thursday.

Singh is backing President Trump’s border wall, after his brother was murdered by an illegal immigrant the day after Christmas.

The Modesto Bee reported that the death of Newman Police Cpl. Ronil Singh again took center stage in the debate over President Donald Trump’s border wall Thursday, with Singh’s brother, Reggie, appearing with the president in a visit to Texas.

Reggie Singh told the story of his brother, who emigrated from Fiji and pursued his lifelong dream of becoming a law enforcement officer. Ronil Singh was gunned down in the early morning hours of Dec. 26 during a traffic stop of a suspect drunken driver.

The man accused of killing Singh, Paulo Virgen Mendoza, was in the United States illegally, authorities have said. He was captured after a 55-hour manhunt; several people alleged to have helped in Mendoza’s escape also are in the United States illegally, authorities have said.

“The way he was killed, what my family’s going through right now, I do not want any other family law enforcement person to go through that,” Reggie Singh said, seated at a table next to Trump during a roundtable discussion at a border patrol station in McAllen, Texas. “Whatever it takes to minimize, put a stop to it my family fully supports it.”

MCALLEN, Texas — President Donald Trump went to the Texas border on Thursday to make his case for building a border wall, bringing with him the brother of slain Newman Police Corporal Ronil Singh.

Reggie Singh, who sat next to President Trump during the hour-long discussion, supported Trump’s initiative to build a wall on the southern border.

“The way he was killed, what my family is going through right now, I don’t want any other family, law enforcement person to go through that,” Singh said. “Whatever it takes to minimize, put a stop to it, my family fully supports it.”

Investigators say the man responsible, Gustavo Perez Arriaga, was in the U.S. illegally, crossing the border years ago into Arizona.

Arriaga had multiple DUI arrests and ties to local gangs, officials said. they say, he was protected by California sanctuary laws.

Former Stanislaus County Sheriff Adam Christianson, who was the county’s top cop at the time of the Cpl. Singh’s death, blamed California’s Sanctuary State law for the killing.

“We can’t ignore the fact that this could have been preventable,” Christianson said.

Trump’s roundtable was with officials and families affected by people in the country illegally. Singh was invited to be a part of the border security conversation with Trump only days after having to bury his brother.

“I watched a family right around Christmastime and I watched them suffer,” Trump said.

Singh said his brother always wanted to be a police officer, so his family immigrated to the country for him to fulfill those dreams.

Singh spoke on the impact of losing his brother the day after Christmas.

“No one should ever go through that,” Singh said. “Looking at that 5-month-old baby looking for his dad—no one should ever go through that on Christmas Day.”
