"Tomorrow, Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano will deliver remarks at the funeral of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Special Agent Jaime J. Zapata in Brownsville, Texas.

The full resources of the U.S. government are at the disposal of our Mexican partners in this investigation.

In order to attend the service, Secretary Napolitano's visit to New Zealand and Australia has been postponed. The Department of Homeland Security remains committed to working with our partners in New Zealand and Australia to enhance our efforts to strengthen the security of the global supply chain, emergency management collaboration and our continued efforts to share information and better combat terrorism and other transnational crimes. Details on the rescheduled trip will be released once they are finalized."
