(CNSNews.com) - President Donald Trump used his speech at the 38th annual National Peace Officers’ Memorial Service to honor slain Newman, Calif., police officer Cpl. Ronil Singh, who was killed by an illegal alien last year, saying Singh “devoted his life to defending the laws of our country.”
“Ronil came to this country legally in 2003 with the dream of earning the badge of an American police officer. That was always his dream, and that’s exactly what Ronil did. He devoted his life to defending the laws of our country,” Trump said.
Singh - Gustavo - Perez - Arriaga - Traffic
Singh was allegedly gunned down by an illegal immigrant - Gustavo Perez Arriaga - during a routine traffic stop the day after Christmas in 2018.
“On Christmas night, he took a picture in front of the family Christmas tree with his beautiful wife, their beloved son, and Sam, their loyal police dog. It’s a picture that all of us saw. I remember it so vividly. I’ll never forget it. I didn’t know I’d get to know the family and greet the family and show the family the Lincoln bedroom at the White House. I didn’t know that, but it’s an extraordinary family, but I’ll never forget the picture,” the president said.
Corporal - Singh - Duty - Story - Hours
“Then Corporal Singh headed out on duty, which he loved, to protect and to serve. You all know the story, because hours later, he was gunned down and killed during a simple traffic stop,” Trump said, adding that Singh was gunned down by Arriaga, “a vicious killer.”
“He was a vicious killer - this man that crossed into our country from the border just a little while before - a vicious killer, that could have been kept out with border security, with the wall, with whatever the **** it takes, could have been kept out,” the president said.
