The family of slain California police officer Cpl. Ronil Singh, who was murdered by an illegal alien the day after Christmas, made sure to thank POTUS Donald Trump for inviting them to the Peace Officers’ Memorial Service on Capitol Hill on Thursday.
That’s in large part because the president has been the only political leader in D.C. to “reach out” to Singh’s family.
After POTUS invited the family onstage to say a few works, Cpl. Singh’s brother, Reggie Singh, stepped up to the microphone and proceeded to thank all law enforcement personnel in the audience for all the work they do.
He then turned to POTUS and told him that he and his family are 100 percent behind the president and all he’s trying to do for American law enforcement personnel.
“This man over here,” Singh said, turning to Trump. “The Singh family supports him. Whatever he’s doing for law enforcement, we support him. His team at the White House has reached out to us multiple times.”
The 2020 Trump campaign tweeted Singh’s tribute.

Reggie participated in a roundtable with Trump and border patrol officers who were stationed at the U.S.-Mexico border a few months back, where he also made sure to express his support.

The emotion became too much for Cpl. Singh’s widow, Anamika, to hold back at Wednesday’s service, but she also turned to POTUS and wholeheartedly thanked him.
“It’s something I didn’t get to do at the office,” she noted. “I actually want to thank you personally. You’re the only one who reached out and gave your condolences to the family.

“And it means a lot to all of our law enforcement families that are here for the sacrifice that my husband and his brothers in blue and sisters in blue have given. So I want to thank you for that. And every family sitting out here wants justice for what happened to their loved ones. And that’s what I want for my husband,” she continued.
Meanwhile, though the president declared a national emergency in February in order to secure funds to build additional sections of border wall, Democrats (and far too many RINOs) in Congress, as well as judicial activist judges in federal courts, continue to oppose him and all of his efforts to secure our country and protect our citizens.
