Congressman Pfluger Addresses Rumors of Illegal Immigrants Being Dropped Off in West Odessa


Washington, DC – Congressman August Pfluger (TX-11) and State Representative Brooks Landgraf released the following statements Thursday following reports of busses dropping off migrants in Ector County, Texas at a Pilot Convenience Store on I-20.

Congressman August Pfluger: “I am aware of the reports that illegal migrants are being dropped off in West Odessa, and am coordinating with CBP and ICE to investigate the claims. If the Biden Administration is dropping off migrants in Odessa, I will work vigorously to put an end to it. The Biden Administration has abandoned Texas. The President’s policies have encouraged more than 4.2 million illegal migrants, including known terrorists and convicted drug criminals, to cross the southern border. The Permian Basin should not be forced to pay the price for President Biden’s border crisis. I will continue working closely with Sheriff Mike Griffis and Representative Brooks Landgraf to make sure Odessans are safe and informed.

Rep. Brooks Landgraf: “The open border policies of the Biden Administration are utterly inhumane, leading to deaths of immigrants at the southern border every single day and recklessly putting the safety of communities in our own state at risk. The recent report of bused illegal immigrants being dropped off in West Odessa in the middle of the night is a disturbing development that is completely unacceptable. Congressman August Pfluger, Sheriff Mike Griffis and I are actively working together with state and federal officials to investigate the entity responsible for this operation and most importantly to ensure the safety of Odessans. Until President Biden decides to uphold immigration laws passed by Congress, the State of Texas will continue utilizing every tool available to secure the border and keep Texans safe."

Look it’s Dumb and Dumber! What’s appalling to me is the total lack of concern by you Biden sycophants for what is happening. What are you dimwits going to do sit back and watch while our country goes to shit?
