Rep. August Pfluger, R-Texas, said “the system is flashing red” as the number of illegal immigrants surges Friday on “The Ingraham Angle.”

“Let’s go back to the 9/11 Commission who, in the days leading up to 9/11, said the system was flashing red,” he told host Laura Ingraham. “I think I’m here to tell you that we should be aware in this country right now, with the number of illegal aliens coming into the United States, that the system is flashing red.”

Pfluger reacted to news of two undocumented Chinese immigrants — “high-value targets,” Ingraham said — who were taken into federal custody after a traffic stop in Kimble County, Texas.

The Texas region has had a problem with undocumented Chinese migrants for a year, she reported.

“It happens all the time,” the Texas congressman said. “It’s blatant. And yet [Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro] Mayorkas comes to Congress on Capitol Hill last week and says he has operational control of the border.”

His statement is false, Pfluger said, adding that the border was “not secure”.

Many voices have called for Mayorkas to step down, he noted. In light of the Department of Homeland Security’s “ministry of truth,” Pfluger urged Mayorkas to consider the veracity of his own statement that the border is secure.

“And let’s start with that as the truth, because we all know that’s not true,” he continued.

“It’s not a partisan issue. And we have to secure the border because our security, like a 9/11 moment, depends on it.”
