McCaul, Texas GOP Delegation Demand President Biden Reimburse Texas for the Border Crisis, Request Meeting

WASHINGTON - U.S. Congressman Michael McCaul (R-Texas) joined Rep. August Pfluger (R-Texas) and the entire Texas Republican delegation in sending a letter to President Biden, urging immediate action on the border crisis - including a reimbursement of resources used throughout Operation Lone Star.

In the letter, the members write: "The Texans we represent have been at the forefront of the crisis brought upon by your administration's failed policies. Ranchers throughout west Texas routinely find bodies of dead migrants, or have their private property destroyed. Drugs flowing across our border have led to a record-number of American lives being ruined by poisonings from synthetic drugs, such as fentanyl. Small localities along the border are suffering from the federal government's failures. These towns should not be forced to reallocate their already exhausted resources to secure their communities.


"We urge you to work with the Texas Delegation to pay Texas back for the resources expended throughout Operation Lone Star, and we urge you to work with us to stop the flow of illegal migration at the southern border. Further, we also request a meeting with you to discuss the border crisis and the solutions proposed by Members of the Texas Delegation to put an end to this crisis."
