Stretch of highway dedicated to slain border agent 

A large stretch of Interstate 8 near Campo, California will be dedicated to U.S. Border Patrol Agent Robert Rosas, who was killed by Mexican drug runners at the border on July 23, 2009.  
Two large memorial signs will be installed along I-8, one on each side of the highway.
"It's the least that can be done for Border Agent Rosas," said a Border Patrol agent, who spoke to The Examiner. "We're out here on our own and despite the rhetoric in DC the border situation is only getting worse and I
don't expect that the agents who've already died will be the last.
Members of the San Diego Minutemen living in east San Diego County aided in establishing the memorial.
