Congressman Pfluger Appointed to Powerful Homeland Security Committee


WASHINGTON, DC — U.S. Congressman August Pfluger (TX-11) today announced that he has been appointed to serve on the House Committee on Homeland Security for the 118th Congress. The committee, created in 2005 to ensure that the American people were protected from terrorist attacks, has jurisdiction over the Department of Homeland Security.

Rep. August Pfluger: “Last Congress, Republicans on the Homeland Security Committee did a lot of good work exposing President Biden’s border crisis. I am proud to have led the fight in exposing the number of known and suspected terrorists entering our country and shutting down the DHS ‘Disinformation Governance Board’. With our new Republican majority and Chairman Green’s leadership, I look forward to putting forward policies to keep our homeland safe and hold this administration accountable for the crisis they have unleashed on Texans."

“I am thrilled to welcome Congressman Pfluger back to the Homeland Security Committee,” said Committee on Homeland Security Chairman Mark Green. “Last Congress, as the lead for the Intelligence and Counterterrorism Subcommittee, he spearheaded the charge to expose the number of known or suspected terrorists leveraging Biden’s weak border security policies to cross our border illegally and successfully pushed back on DHS’ overreaching Disinformation Governance Board. The Committee will greatly benefit from Congressman Pfluger’s leadership on these critical issues and I look forward to working alongside him to strengthen the security of our homeland.”

Congressman August Pfluger served as the Ranking Member on the Intelligence and Counterterrorism Subcommittee in the 117th Congress.
