Sharpton은 미국의 이민자 수용소를 견학했습니다.. 델 리오의 남쪽 국경에서 “인도적 위기에 처한 난민들을 만나고 기도하다,” according to Wednesday press release from the civil rights organization National Action Network (NAN), which Sharpton founded in 1991.
After touring the situation with Democratic Del Rio Mayor Bruno Lozano, Sharpton held a press conference during which he accused Border Patrol of using tactics reminiscent of the slavery era, but his comments were overwhelmed by protesters who accused him of being “a disgrace” 과 “a racist.”
Among the phrases hecklers hurled at Sharpton were “Why are you stoking racism where it doesn’t exist?” 과 “How much money are you making out of this?”
“Del Rio is not a racist city,” someone shouted. “Del Rio is a loving, caring community. We don’t want your racism in Texas. 여기서 나가! Nobody wants to hear your racist nonsense in Del Rio!”
“그 [incites] violence and riots,” said Kelsey French, the wife of a Border Patrol agent, according to local 여우 29. “He is not pro-cop. Our community is very cop. We support our men and women in the green and the blue and every color that they wear. We love them. We don’t want him here we don’t want his trouble. 아멘.”
Sharpton spoke dismissively of the protesters, whom he accused of being “트럼프 지지자” 과 “right-wingers” WHO “can scream all they want.”
Sharpton also said he wanted the Border Patrol to face an investigation while someone shouted that he is “a race-baiter.”
Sharpton said on Wednesday’s episode of MSNBC’s “모닝조” that he and his group intended to get to the bottom of the recent controversial photos some Democratic lawmakers have claimed show 국경 순찰대 agents using whips against Haitian migrants, though they did not possess whips.
에도 불구하고 assurances from Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and Border Patrol Chief Raul Ortiz that border officials do not use whips, 백악관 언론 비서 Jen Psaki 말했다 Thursday that the Biden 관리 is prohibiting Border Patrol agents from using horses in the 강에서 sector amid Democratic outrage.
