The tale of Freddie Vasquez, an El Paso border patrol officer who passed away, is told in a campaign advertisement recently issued by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton. The advertisement attacks Rochelle Garza, Paxton’s opponent, over remarks she made in the past regarding border patrol agents.
The commercial is narrated by Freddie’s widow, Inez Vasquez, who details how Freddie got COVID-19 from unscreened migrants at the border and ultimately died from the virus’s complications. Vasquez states, “Freddie worked as a border agent for 19 years.” “He prevented deaths. He sacrificed his life to protect us,” she declared.
During a “Stay in Mexico” rally near Brownsville, Texas, in October 2019, Garza tweeted that the Border Patrol was “terrorising” border towns with a “shameless and cowardly” show of force. “He [Freddie] was definitely not a coward,” Vasquez retorted. Rochelle Garza ought to give thanks to God every day for the men and women who protect America, such as my husband.
Garza personally accused the U.S. Border Patrol of “atrocious actions” in an official complaint to the Department of Homeland Security while working as a staff attorney for the ACLU in 2019. Border Patrol, in her words, is a “rogue agency that cares little about the people in its custody.”
