Reggie Singh, brother of the police officer killed in California by an illegal immigrant last month, told President Trump Thursday that their family is “fully” behind whatever the White House needs to do to stop illegal immigration.

Mr. Singh was with Mr. Trump in McAllen, Texas, where the president was visiting the border to make the case for his border wall.

The Singhs were legal immigrants to the U.S. from Fiji and Ronil Singh desperately wanted to become a police officer, earning his citizenship to be eligible, his brother said.

Police say Singh was killed after a traffic stop on Gustavo Perez Arriaga, who had snuck into the U.S. via the border in Arizona.

“The way he was killed, what my family’s going through right now, I do not want any other family, law enforcement person to go through that,” Mr. Singh said of his brother. “Whatever it takes to minimize, put a stop to that, I fully support that.”
