HOUSTON – The family of Houston-native Vanessa Guillen, the Fort Hood soldier whose remains were found near the Leon River months after she went missing, will meet with President Donald Trump.
According to the family’s attorney Natalie Khawam, White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows contacted her to thank her for the work she has been doing for Guillen’s family.
Meadows told Khawam that Trump invited her and the Guillen family for a private meeting with him, Khawam said.
“This is not a Republican or Democratic issue,” Khawan said. " This is an American issue. This is our soldiers. This is their lives.”
The meeting will be on July 29 in Washington D.C., which is come one day before the “#IAmVanessaGuillen” bill will be introduced to Congress.
“This bill is going to protect all our soldiers so this never happens again,” Khawam said.
Guillen’s remains were found near the Leon River earlier this month -- more than two months after she went missing from Fort Hood on April 22.
