Biden avverte gli agenti della pattuglia di frontiera a cavallo che caricano i migranti nel settore di Del Rio: 'Those people will pay'

Il presidente ha affermato che gli agenti della pattuglia di frontiera stavano vittimizzando i migranti: “I cavalli li investono, persone legate.” tuttavia, i critici hanno sottolineato che gli agenti tenevano le redini per controllare i cavalli, not whips or straps for migrants.

Of course I take responsibility,” Biden ha detto. “I’m president, but it was horrible what you saw.

BIDEN ADMINISTRATION STOPS BORDER PATROL USING HORSES IN DEL RIO AMID DEM OUTRAGE

To see people treated like they did, horses barely running over, people being strapped—it’s outrageous,” Biden ha detto. “te lo prometto, those people will pay. There will be an investigation underway now and there will be consequences. There will be consequences.

He added that it isan embarrassment, but beyond an embarrassment, it’s dangerous.

It’s wrong,” Egli ha detto. “It sends the wrong message around the world. It sends the wrong message at home.

Ha aggiunto: “It’s simply not who we are.

The president’s comments come after the Biden administration on Thursday said it was prohibiting Border Patrol agents from using horses in the Del Rio sector amid Democratic outrage over images that lawmakers falsely claimed showed agents usingwhipsto stop Haitian migrants getting into the United States.

White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki on Thursday said that Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas announced thatwe would no longer be using horses in Del Rio.

A DHS spokesperson later said in a statement: “We have ceased the use of the horse patrol in Del Rio temporarily. We’ll prioritize other methods for identifying individuals who might be in medical distress.

The revelation comes on the fourth day of controversy related to the false claims that agents usedwhipsagainst Haitian migrants on Sunday – a claim that was initially debunked by Mayorkas and Border Patrol chief Raul Ortiz on Monday, who noted that agents were wielding long reins to control their horses in difficult riverines.

Other Border Patrol sources have noted that agents will spin or twirl their reins in order to move the horse forward as a signal to the horse. So far no images have been presented of migrants being hit by the reins.

tuttavia, as the White House condemned the images, by Tuesday Mayorkas had changed his stance.

I was horrified by what I saw,” Mayorkas told CNN. “I’m going to let the investigation run its course. But the pictures that I observed troubled me profoundly. That defies all of the values that we seek to instill in our people.

BORDER PATROL AGENTS FACING DEMOCRATIC ATTACKS SHIFTED TO DESK DUTY AMID INVESTIGATION

Martedì, Vice President Kamala Harris said she supported an investigation and wasdeeply troubledby the allegations.

Leader della maggioranza al Senato Chuck Schumer decriedimages of inhumane treatment of Haitian migrants by Border Patrol—including the use of whips.

The agents involved have since been moved to administrative duty.

The narrative that the agents usedwhipshas continued to gather steam among activists and left-wing Democrats, who have then infused a racial narrative into the mix, given that the Haitians are Black.

“Ciò a cui abbiamo assistito ci riporta indietro di centinaia di anni,” rappresentante. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., said this week. “What we witnessed was worse than what we witnessed in slavery … cowboys with their reins, ancora, whipping black people.

As those claimed to continue to move forward, senza prove, agents expressed anger to Fox News about the move, which they said will make them less safe.

It will make patrolling extremely difficult along with security. Questo è folle. The agents did nothing wrong,” one agent told Fox.

Nel frattempo, former acting CBP Commissioner Mark Morgan tore into Mayorkas, accusing of throwing agentsunder the bus.

It’s reckless, it’s irresponsible, it’s unconscionable and this guy has got to go,” ha detto a Fox News. “He continues to lie to the American people about the basic pieces of information he should know, he lies about why he doesn’t have it, and now he’s absolutely lost the respect of every single Border Patrol agent under his charge because of what he’s done.
