Congressman Pfluger and Rep. Landgraf release statements regarding reports of Migrants being dropped off in Ector County.

ODESSA, Texas (KOSA) - Congressman August Pfluger and Rep. Brooks Landgraf have both released statements on reports of migrants being dropped off by a bus in Ector County at the Pilot off of 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.”
