LEE expresses concerns over the shooting of Houston Police Officer Nainash Patel

THE STATEMENT OF CONGRESSWOMAN SHEILA JACKSON LEE REGARDING THE SHOOTING OF A HOUSTON POLICE OFFICER

Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, senior member of the House Homeland Security and Judiciary Committee, issued the following statement concerning the Houston Police Officer that was shot in the line of duty while attempting to issue a warrant:

“I would like to express my deep concern and anger over the shooting of Houston Police Officer Nainash Patel. I want to wish him and his family well, and I am glad that he is on the road to recovery. Officer Patel should be commended for being on the front lines in dealing with the national and international violence of the drug cartels. We must never give up the fight to ensure that these drug cartels cease to function, and it is officers like Officer Patel that are going to win this fight against the cartels.”

“I have been and will continue to be a strong supporter of multi –law enforcement agency drug task force, like the one Officer Patel was working with, to capture these persons involved in international drug activity and violence,” commented Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee. “Again, I would like to offer my prayers to Officer Patel and his family, and I wish him a speedy recovery.”
