BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Today, I was honored along with numerous other Sheriff’s to have been invited by our President to attend an event in the East Wing of the White House honoring the brave men and women of ICE and Customs Border Patrol.
Prior to the ceremony, there was an extensive panel discussion about the importance of protecting our borders against illegal immigration, terrorists and violent gang members as well as the resources needed to protect our Law Enforcement Officers.
Present in the audience were the families of four members of ICE and Customs Border Patrol who were killed in the line of duty.
President Trump and Vice President Pence were both in attendance to honor the memories and sacrifices of these fallen heroes and also to recognize others for their incredible service and lifesaving efforts.
President Trump also reminded all of the Sheriffs and Law Enforcement Officers in the room that our country will continue to protect those that protect us!
While I was honored to have been invited to the ceremony, I was humbled to hear the stories of these brave heroes who made the ultimate sacrifice in the protection of our great our nation.
I am truly amazed at the actions of the brave men and women who serve each and every day as local, state, and federal Law Enforcement Officers across this great country as the protect our citizens and communities.
–Sheriff Wayne Ivey
