Joe Biden has decided to make the Border Patrol the enemy by lying about their treatment of illegal aliens. Democrats have compared them to slave drivers. Is there any depth this administration won’t go to in order to promote a false narrative?
They never whipped anyone. They never used the horse reins as whips. Literally nothing happened. It was all made up. And it doesn’t matter. The other side doesn’t care about the truth. It’s totally irrelevant to them. https://t.co/RI4uyXWijk

FNC: “President Biden on Friday left Border Patrol agents stunned after repeating debunked claims that Del Rio agents whipped or ‘strapped’ Haitian migrants, while promising to make those agents ‘pay.’ Biden weighed in on the controversy over images that emerged Sunday of agents on horseback blocking Haitian migrants from entering the U.S.
Claims that agents, who were using long reins to control their horses, were using ‘whips’ were quickly debunked by officials and other agents – but activists and elected Democrats have continued to fuel it. The photographer who took the images said Friday he did not see any agents whipping migrants.”
DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas scoffed at the reports of whipping, as did Border Patrol Chief Raul Ortiz. However, the next day, after the White House said the images “horrific”, Mayorkas went on CNN and said the images “troubled me profoundly…one cannot weaponize a horse” against migrants. What complete horse manure.
Biden has said, “To see people treated like they did, horses barely running over, people being strapped – it’s outrageous,” Biden said, while making a whipping motion. “I promise you, those people will pay. There will be an investigation underway now and there will be consequences. There will be consequences.” Yeah, there will be. Political consequences for Joe Biden.
Border Patrol spox Brandon Judd said in response, “Now that the president of the United States has already said they did wrong, how is an investigator supposed to do a true and honest investigation? Because if that investigator finds they did nothing wrong — and they didn’t do anything wrong — but if that investigator finds they didn’t do anything wrong, how is that investigator’s job going to go?”
Border Patrol agents were livid. “Would you go to work and do your best knowing that if you do your boss is going to ‘make you pay’?” one agent told press. “I’m dumbfounded and don’t know what to say. Is the president threatening to throw us in prison?” Another said: “I see the administration wants to fry our agents. He just started a war with Border Patrol.”
