President Trump invited the family of Newman, Calif., police Cpl. Ronil Singh to speak at Annual National Peace Officers' Memorial Service on Capitol Hill . Singh was killed in the line of duty by an illegal immigrant in December 2018.

Officer Singh's widow, although apprehensive to speak at first, said that President Trump was the only one that reached out to offer condolences.

"I actually want to thank you personally for — you’re the only one that actually reached out and said — gave your condolence to the family, and it actually means a lot to all of our law enforcement families that are here for the sacrifice my husband and his brothers in blue and sisters in blue have given, so I want to thank you. And we all, every family sitting out here wants justice for what happened to their loved ones, and that’s what I want for my husband," she said.

Officer Singh's brother, Reggie, told the crowd, "I am the brother of Cpl. Ronil Singh. I’d like to thank every single law enforcement officer over here. What you guys go through, I heard stories from my brother. This man over here, the Singh family supports him. Whatever he’s doing for the law enforcement, we support him."

"His team at the White House has reached out to us multiple times, multiple times. I don’t think that has ever happened before, ever. This man is amazing, and my family supports him."
