Pfluger to VP Harris: You’re in Charge of Border, Come See it

April 9, 2021

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Thursday, Congressman August Pfluger (TX-11) sent a letter to Vice President Kamala Harris, the appointed lead to the Biden Administration’s border response, regarding condemning the administration’s dangerous border policies, calling attention to the recent allegations of criminal activity at the Midland HHS facility, and imploring the Vice President to visit the Midland HHS immediately.

The letter reads, in part: “In the past 24 hours, there have been multiple reports of allegations of abuse, sexual assault, insufficient staffing and reporting protocols, and numerous COVID infections at facilities in Texas, including the Midland location. These reports have prompted an investigation by Governor Greg Abbott. Additionally, our office has reported these allegations to the HHS Inspector General (IG).


“I call on you to immediately come to our district to see the plight of these minors firsthand. The administration’s refusal to come and visit these areas or respond to our concerns is only making matters worse and endangering more lives. Make no mistake, this is a crisis that must be dealt with immediately.”
