WASHINGTON - May 21, 2023 - PRLog -- By Stan Fitzgerald Legacy PAC Founding Partner:
On February 15, 2011, ICE/HSI Special Agents Victor Avila and Jaime Zapata were ambushed by 8 members of Los Zetas Cartel while on official assignment in Mexico. Special Agent Zapata tragically lost his life in the line of duty while Special Agent Avila survived multiple gunshots.
About three weeks prior to the incident the U.S Embassy had issued an alert stating not to travel on highway 57. The alerts and intelligence were ignored by Avila's supervisors who ordered the mission. On highway 57 Two SUVs with armed cartel rammed them off the agents off highway and through a slightly opened window shot the agents with an AK-47 and handgun. After 40 minutes of waiting for a helicopter Zapata succumbed to his injuries in the San Luis Potosi hospital.
In 2019 the D.C. court of appeals dismissed the murder charge against cartel members Docket 1:13-cr-00143-RCL USA v. QUEZADA PINA. Sentencing has been scheduled for May 22nd and 23rd 2023 where Victor Avila is asking for support by joining him in the courtroom. Monday at 3pm and Tuesday at 10am. US District Court Judge Lamberth, courtroom 15, 333 Constitution Avenue NW, Washington D.C. 2001
"Only a secure border and courts imposing maximum sentences will deter the cartel from continued murder and human/drug trafficking," said Stan Fitzgerald Legacy PAC Founding partner and President of Veterans for Trump (VFAF.ORG)
