Pfluger Demands Answers from Mayorkas on Releasing Illegal Migrants in San Angelo

WASHINGTON, DC – Monday, Congressman August Pfluger (TX-11) sent a letter to Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas following the news that the Biden Administration was considering dropping off buses of illegal migrants in San Angelo, Texas.

In the letter, Rep. Pfluger presses Secretary Mayorkas for answers on releasing illegal migrants by stating, “San Angelo is a welcoming community, but the locality has not volunteered for this mission, nor are they responsible for the burdens of the border crisis. This situation is a direct result of DHS' shortsighted policies that encourage more illegal immigration and the agency's failure to establish operational control of the southern border.”

He also asks Secretary Mayorkas a series of questions relating to DHS’s process of selecting drop-off locations and notifying local communities.
