WATCH: Congressman Pfluger Warns Texans About Illegal Alien Invasion

SAN ANGELO, TX – San Angelo's representative in the US Congress, August Pfluger, held a town hall on Tuesday warning citizens of the surge of illegal aliens that are crossing the United States Border.

In the video above Pfluger addresses that the surge is due to bad policy from the White House. Pfluger claims that instead of trying to fix the problem the Biden administration is instead ignoring if not welcoming the illegals into our country.

According to Pfluger over the past two months the US border patrol has made over 350,000 apprehensions of illegal aliens. He did not seem excited about learning how the May numbers would look. 

Pfluger did however show a sliver of hope by promising that he will continue to fight against the liberal agenda.

Pfluger will be having another town hall on Friday. For more info click here: U.S House Representative August Pfluger Town Hall

Whole lot of empty chairs there. I wish he would have touched on the economic reasons that immigrants are coming over also, but of course he is republican so all he is trying to do here is bash Biden because his uneducated base eats it up (they believe what ever their media/leaders tell them.)

Economic reasons make it ok with you to have the surge of illegal aliens??? Let me ask you this, there are tens of thousands of homeless people in the US right now because of economic reasons. Why don't you invite only 2 or 3 to come live with you. That would only be a fraction of the percentage you seem to be ok with coming here illegally because of economic reasons. Or are you a typical liberal, you are more than willing to talk the talk but, that's all you want to be responsible for!

"Economic reasons make it ok with you to have the surge of illegal aliens???"

I never said that.

"seem to be ok with coming here illegally because of economic reasons."

I never said that either.

"Let me ask you this, there are tens of thousands of homeless people in the US right now because of economic reasons. Why don't you invite only 2 or 3 to come live with you."

The homeless issue and the border issue are two completely different things, try to stay on topic.

Comment

And you think if American citizens had economic issues and traveled to another country, they would be given medical care, housing, welfare, etc., etc.?  If you enjoy your tax money going to people who blatantly cross the border into the USA illegally, then you are the dumb uneducated one.  Why don't you open your doors to these poor unfortunate people?  Why don't you pay for their expenses when they get here?  Yeah, you won't.  You dummycrats just like to spend other people's money on things that don't help the USA.  And one more thing....bash Biden?  You mean the racist old man that pretends to be the our leader?  The guy that takes his marching orders from others?  The guy that continues to call half the country KKK members?  You don't bash idiots; it's too easy to do.  All Pfluger is doing is telling the truth.  The bashing comes from the lame stream media and the dummycrats because that's all they know how to do since they don't have any ideas of their own.

Since you are new here I'll go ahead and post the same things that I have been posting for quite some time, again.

"And you think if American citizens had economic issues and traveled to another country, they would be given medical care, housing, welfare, etc., etc.?"

This implies that illegal immigrants are getting these benefits. "undocumented" immigrants are ineligible for any social programs like "welfare". As for the medical care, it seems that Biden is actually refusing to pay Texas hospitals back for their care, so it is the republicans that are paying for it, not to mention that doctors gave an oath to help anyone in need and simply can't just not help someone, they could actually loose their license for that. As for housing, are you so cruel as to just let other human beings just sit outside while waiting for bureaucracy to take place on what to do with them? That says more about you than anything else.

"Why don't you open your doors to these poor unfortunate people?  Why don't you pay for their expenses when they get here? "

I have never said that I openly "welcome" them here, now did I? I am simply explaining that the reasons that they are coming here in higher numbers are many, not just as simple as "because Biden." It is the same thing that happened in 2019 when trump was in office.

"The guy that takes his marching orders from others?  The guy that continues to call half the country KKK members?"

I'm going to need some evidence of this, I know he "decried" certain states for electing KKK members to congress in the past, which is understandable. I will need evidence of him calling "half the country KKK members" and that he takes "his marching orders from others" though.

"The bashing comes from the lame stream media and the dummycrats because that's all they know how to do since they don't have any ideas of their own.  "

Saying that the bashing comes from the other side and then you making a poor insult with "dummycrats" (hehe) in the same sentence does not help your position on either. Who's the one that doesn't "have any idea's of their own?"

Comment

“all he is trying to do here is bash Biden”

oh yeah, because everyone knows what a GREAT job Biden is doing at the border lol.

Comment

Perhaps, but the reasons they are coming over is not all rooted in "policy" like he is saying, the border patrol even acknowledges this, as I have shown numerous times. It is just disingenuous to say that it is all Biden's doing when there are other reasons for the higher-than-usual number of immigrants attempting to cross the border. It is political bias and irresponsible reporting to say otherwise.

Comment

“all rooted in policy”

Precisely! Trumps common sense border policies which were effective, as opposed to Biden’s rescinding of those same policies because, you know, Orange Man Bad ;)

Comment

"not all rooted in "policy""

You always omit context words when "trying" to prove your point. I wonder why it is that you have to remove context for you to even have a point?

Not one of you in nearly 6 months now has pointed to a policy that directly caused people to come here. The remain in Mexico policy was for people who were already here and was only suspended for 100 days so the department could catch up anyway. The border wall was never finished to begin with and the portion that trump built was mostly to replace existing barrier. Biden isn't even giving immigrants free healthcare like you guys have been saying, as evidenced by the debt Texas hospitals are mounting because the federal government wont pay them back. And every one of you has even admitted to me that this started under trump, way before Biden was even elected. It's not because "orange man bad" it's because you guys want to blame democrats for everything, when it's actually quite a bit more complicated than that.

If I am wrong, well show me some evidence, some proof of your side, I will take a look and if I am wrong I will admit it, I have done so here in the past.

Comment

I misread your post sorry. So you’re saying that remain in Mexico program is back in effect? I don’t think so! The 100 day pause had to do with deportations...which NO DOUBT caused people to come.

Also I never said Biden was giving free healthcare to illegal immigrants, what I said is that’s what he promised! Like I’ve said before push factors AND pull factors it’s complicated right?

 

Comment

Sure, I will agree that is it complicated. It's not just as simple as "because biden."

The remain in mexico policy was suspended for 100 days to allow departments to catch up. It was put back into effect after that 100 days (I think), now I think it is cancelled altogether.

Comment

There were other factors. During a 2019 democrat debate Biden was asked by Univision journalist Jorge Ramos “are you prepared to say tonight that you and Pres. Obama made a mistake (on deportations)? Why should Latinos trust you? Biden replied “I would in fact make sure that there is, that we immediately surge the border”

And surge they did ;)

Comment

Nice try but you left out a very important part of that quote;

"I would, in fact, make sure that there is, we immediate surge to the border, all those people seeking asylum they deserve to be heard, that's who we are were a nation that says if you want to flee and you are fleeing oppression you should come."

He said the people that were seeking asylum, that is people that are trying to come here LEGALLY.

Comment

I suppose you could argue that they misinterpreted what he said (you did afterall), but he didn't say "come on over the border and get some free stuff" like you, and other republicans, imply.

Comment

They understood. Also Biden absolutely told illegals “come and get some free stuff”. In a subsequent democrat debate every single candidate, when asked by the moderator for a show of hands for who would provide healthcare for illegal immigrants, raised his or her hand!

Comment

How about the thousands of illegal immigrants they’ve found crammed like sardines into tractor trailers and cartel owned houses? Apparently they got the message also ;)

Comment

Again, that has been happening for decades and happened under trump (and Obama and Bush etc) it is not a new thing that just started because Biden become president. I remember in the 80's Reagan (some republicans lord and savior) actually made all illegals legal, you didn't see republicans getting mad at him at the time (or now). But now Immigration is their top priority because they don't have anything else to gripe about when it comes to Biden. 

Comment

Yes illegal immigration has been happening for decades. Which is why one of the first things Trump said was, in order to fix our broken immigration system, we have to first secure our southern border.

Stop making lame excuses things are getting far worse and everyone knows it!

 

Comment

How would you feel if Biden made all undocumented immigrants legal like Reagan did in the 80's?

Comment

I wouldn’t like it. We already let in one million immigrants per year! Plus I don’t think it’s fair to move those, whose first act upon entering our country was to break the law, to the front of the line ahead of those who desire to enter legally.

Comment

Not just illegal immigrants pouring over our southern border lots of drugs too...VERY dangerous ones like methamphetamine and fentanyl!

Those in the pictures the ones being crammed like sardines into tractor trailers and cartel “stash houses”, Those are NOT the asylum seekers who had the means to pay off the cartels for “safe passage” into the U.S., they’re the dregs and the criminal aliens!

What sort of debt do you think they owe the cartels? I’m no genius like you ;) but I’m thinking it has something to do with all the drugs that are pouring in.

Comment

Oh no drugs! Republicans boogyman since the 80's. Most drugs come in from legal ports of entry, not to mention the boatloads coming in from the Caribbean to Florida. I don't think that people traveling on foot get caught with that much drugs (although it does happen), wouldn't be profitable for the small amount they could carry anyway I would think. And if they were to stuff a tractor trailer full of drugs they would also put cargo inside in attempt to conceal it, hard to do with people also in there. Also, I am almost sure the cartels get paid up front.

Comment

Hmm. So all the pictures of the massive shipments of drugs being intercepted, those came in through a port of entry? Cause I could’ve sworn the articles were specific as to the location where the drugs were found.

Also I never said drugs and HUMANS were being trafficked together. Not initially anyway, but they very well could be used to help transport them later ;)

 

Comment

It used to be that way, yes. Most drugs that are smuggled in large quantities are through official ports of entry.

Comment

If not something even worse it could be for FAR more nefarious reasons than that!

Comment

I have no problem with legal immigration. But it HAS to be controlled…and like it or not, that requires a secure border!

You really have to wonder why Biden is doing some of the things he’s doing it’s like he’s trying to out Bernie, Bernie. I don’t even think he even knows what day it is half of the time. He’s just a puppet, and it’s my opinion the ones pulling his strings do NOT have our Country’s best interest at heart!

Comment

Other than outright closing the border down completely you will not ever be able to prevent people from coming over. Even if you did they will just find a new way through (boats/submarines, tunnels, etc)

I don't believe any of those things about Biden, and no one is able to show me any evidence of it either. Even if that was the case what makes you think that any (or all) of the past presidents weren't "puppets" also? In my opinion republicans as a whole don't have the country's best interest at heart ( tax cuts for the rich for example.) At least democrats seem like they are trying to make America a better place to live (healthcare, infrastructure, labor laws for example.)

Comment

Believe what you want I wouldn’t expect you to agree ;)

Our tax system is already highly regressive. The top 5% of wage earners pay 70% of income taxes…the bottom 50% pay nothing.

Comment

Just explaining how the whole “tax cuts for the rich” claim by the socialist left is pure BS.

You’re welcome ;)

Comment

Demo libs are fine with raising taxes…as long as it’s other people’s money ;)

Comment

More like republicans are fine with the super rich plundering the US of it's wealth (and keeping it offshore/ in foreign nations) and not giving anything back like the working class has to.
