The City of Brownsville will never forget ICE agent Jaime Zapata after he was murdered in Mexico. The City of Brownsville, friends and family of the agent gathered at the corner of Padre Island road for the renaming of Coffee Port road in Zapata's honor.
The street will now be known as Jaime J. Zapata Avenue and while the renaming brought some smiles it also brought grief over the memory of the slain ICE agent. The past few months have been a roller coaster for the family as they have waited for answers surrounding his death, but several family members did attend the dedication event.
