Pfluger Gets Biden Admin to Cave on Terrorist Privacy Waiver Policy

WASHINGTON, DC – Last week, Rep. August Pfluger (R-TX) and other members of the Homeland Security committee revealed that the Department of Homeland Security was refusing to brief the Committee on two significant terrorist plots planned on U.S. soil without a signed privacy waiver from the suspected terrorists.

In response, Rep. August Pfluger sent a letter with Homeland Security Committee Ranking Member John Katko (R-NY) and Rep. Mayra Flores (R-TX) to Homeland Security Secretary Mayorkas demanding to know why such a policy was instituted, and expressing serious concern about perceived attempts to obstruct Congressional oversight efforts. 
This week, DHS responded, telling Homeland Security Republicans that they will back down from these requirements and set up the briefings for Committee members on the attempted terrorist plots by criminal non-citizens
Rep. Pfluger and Homeland Republicans will continue to use any oversight tool at their disposal to hold this reckless administration accountable and we will not tolerate any attempts from DHS to stonewall Congress from conducting its Constitutionally-mandated responsibilities.
Watch more on their efforts here.
