Texas Insider Report: AUSTIN, Texas – (ROCKSPRINGS, TX) – Representatives Tony Gonzales (TX-23) and Jodey Arrington (TX-19), and Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) on Friday celebrated the official renaming of the Rocksprings Border Patrol Station as “the Donna M. Doss Border Patrol Station”. 
 
“Agent Doss embodied a life of public service and commitment to her community,”
 said Congressman Gonzales. “I am honored to have been able to commemorate her legacy today, not only for Agent Doss, but for every agent who has lost their life in the line of duty.”

“Each day, law enforcement officers and their families make courageous sacrifices to protect Texas communities and our nation,”
