Murdered HPD Cop's Widow to Go to Washington to Discuss Immigration

HPD Officer Rodney Johnson


HOUSTON -- The widow of a murdered Houston police officer is headed to Capitol Hill on a dark anniversary.

It was two years ago this month when Rodney Johnson was gunned down by Juan Wuintero. He was in this country illegally according to prosecutors.

Johnson's wife, Sgt. Joslyn Johnson, will speak at a congressional forum on immigration. She says she wants local and federal officials to do more to keep illegal immigrants off the street.

Johnson will be accompanied by the president of the police officers union Gary Blankenship.

They're scheduled to speak before the Congressional forum next Tuesday.
