IDLAND, TEXAS/MARCH 16, 2021-THE CITY OF MIDLAND AND MIDLAND COUNTY OFFICIALS WERE INFORMED BY GOVERNOR ABBOTT’S OFFICE LATE SUNDAY EVENING THAT ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT CHILDREN WERE BEING TAKEN TO A FACILITY AT 1788 AND COUNTY ROAD 150 IN SOUTH MIDLAND COUNTY. GOVERNOR ABBOTT AND LOCAL OFFICALS ARE CONCERNED THAT FEDERAL AUTHORITES WERE NOT FORTHCOMING WITH INFORMATION OR ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS

(JOHN BYERS, CHIEF OF STAFF-CONGRESSMAN AUGUST PFLUGAL, 11TH DISTRICT)

(TERRY JOHNSON, MIDLAND COUNTY JUDGE-MIDLAND, TEXAS)

CITY OF MIDLAND AND MIDLAND COUNTY GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS HAVE BEEN TOLD THAT THE FACILITY IS ONLY FOR MALE CHILDREN FROM THE AGES OF 13 THROUGH 17.

(MAYOR PATRICK PAYTON, CITY OF MIDLAND-MIDLAND, TEXAS)

UNACCOMPANIED MINORS ARE CROSSING IN FROM THE MEXICO-EL PASO BORDER. CONGRESSMAN AUGUST PFLUGAR OF THE TEXAS, 11TH DISTRICT WANTS PRESIDENT BIDEN CALL THIS A BORDER CRISIS.

(CONGRESSMAN AUGUST PFLUGER, TEXAS, 11TH DISTRICT)

MOST OF THE UNACCOMPANIED MINORS WILL REQUIRE SOME TYPE OF MEDICAL TREATMENT WHEN THEY ARE PROCESSED IN TO THE FACILITY AT SOUTH 1788 AND COUNTY ROAD 150. LOCAL ELECTED OFFICIALS WERE INFORMED THAT THERE ARE CHILDREN THAT ARE BEING BUSSED INTO THE FACILITY THAT HAVE COVID-19.

(CONGRESSMAN AUGUST PFLUGER, TEXAS, 11TH DISTRICT)

SOMETIME BETWEEN 2013 AND 2014 THE EMPTY AND SEMI-ABANDONED WEST TEXAS STATE SCHOOL IN PYOTE WAS BEING CONSIDERED AS A PROCESSING AND HOUSING CENTER FOR UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANTS. THIS FACILITY COULD BE USED TO HOUSE THE UNCOMPANIED MINORS, BUT DUE TO LACK OF COORDINATION BETWEEN FEDERAL OFFICIALS THIS HAS NOT BEEN CONSIDERED.

(CONGRESSMAN AUGUST PFLUGER, TEXAS, 11TH DISTRICT)

IT IS UNKNOWN HOW LONG THE DEPARTMENT OF SAFETY AND HOMELAND SECURITY AND THE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES WILL BE USING THIS FACILITY. CONGRESSMAN AUGUST PFLUGAR AND MIDLAND ELECTED OFFICIALS ARE HOPING THIS WILL NOT BE A TREND OF BEING BLINDSIDED BY U.S. GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS.
