Brian Terry Foundation Spokesman Prepared to Comment on Holder Contempt Vote

Family Seeks Answers and Justice
Phoenix, AZ –Chairman of the Brian Terry Foundation, Robert Heyer is available to discuss the Holder contempt vote taking place in Congress. Nearly 18 months ago, Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was killed at the hands of Mexican drug cartel bandits armed by a failed gun trafficking investigation known as Operation Fast and Furious.
On Wednesday, Representative John Dingell (D-MI), the Representative of the Terry’s in Congress, invoked the Terry family name while saying he would not back the contempt resolutions but instead wants the Oversight and Government Reform Committee to conduct a more thorough investigation into Operation Fast and Furious.
The Terry Family made the following statement in response:
“Congressman Dingell represents the district in Michigan where Brian Terry was born and where his family still resides, but his views don’t represent those of the Terry family. Nor does he speak for the Terry family. And he has never spoken to the Terry family.
His office sent us a condolence letter when Brian was buried 18 months ago. That’s the last time we heard from him. A year ago, after the House Oversight and Reform Committee began looking into Operation Fast and Furious, one of Brian’s sisters called Rep. Dingell’s office seeking help and answers. No one from his office called back.
While Mr. Dingell call’s for more investigation, we are calling for action. The Terry family has been waiting for over 18 months for answers about Operation Fast and Furious and how it was related to Brian’s death. If Rep. Dingell truly wants to support the Terry family and honor Brian Terry, a son of Michigan, he and other members of congress will call for the Attorney General to immediately provide the documents requested by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.”
The Brian Terry Foundation website www.honorbrianterry.com is collecting donations to raise funds for the families of slain Border Patrol agents, to raise public awareness of the flawed Fast and Furious investigation, and to establish educational scholarships. The Terry family wants to make certain that any mistakes made by the Justice Department during the investigation are never repeated.
