“[Harris] is placing blame on agents to deflect because she and Biden are not going to change how they are handling this.”
Democrats and the media have been silent for days about the appalling situation in Del Rio, Texas, where over 10,000 illegal border-crossers have been packed under a bridge.
It was only when a completely false narrative about Border Patrol agents using whips on migrants from Haiti that journalists and Democrats finally spoke up.
Kamala Harris, who is supposedly in charge of the situation at the border, but has said nothing for weeks, is now advancing this false story.
In this report by Brett Samuels of The Hill, Harris doesn’t mention whips, but the implication is clear. Harris is faulting the Border Patrol for the “horrible” treatment of the migrants:
Harris ‘deeply troubled’ by treatment of Haitian migrants
Vice President Harris on Tuesday condemned the treatment of Haitian migrants at the southern border after images circulated appearing to show Border Patrol agents on horseback grabbing individuals seeking to enter the U.S.
“What I saw depicted, those individuals on horseback treating human beings the way they were was horrible,” Harris told reporters after an event to promote the White House’s economic agenda.
“I fully support what is happening right now, which is a thorough investigation into what is going on there. But human beings should never be treated that way, and I’m deeply troubled about it,” she said.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) earlier Tuesday announced it is investigating the treatment of Haitian migrants by Customs and Border Protection agents after video and images surfaced of the agents on horseback chasing down migrants at the southern border.
“DHS does not tolerate the abuse of migrants in our custody and we take these allegations very seriously,” the department said in a statement on Twitter. “We are committed to processing migrants in a safe, orderly, and humane way. We can and must do this in a way that ensures the safety and dignity of migrants.”
The audio of this video isn’t great, so turn it up or use headphones:
Peter Hasson of FOX News reports that Border Patrol agents are “furious” over the way Harris framed the issue:
Border agents furious about Kamala Harris' comments today, telling @AdamShawNY and me:
"She is placing blame on agents to deflect because she and Biden are not going to change how they are handling this."
"It just proves what absolute idiots they are." https://t.co/Yra7AZ2fg6

From the report:
Border Patrol agents who spoke to Fox News were angered by the pile-on from the administration, and accused it of trying to deflect from its inability to control the border.
“This whole situation is blowing up and even liberals are turning on this administration,” one agent told Fox News. “[Harris] is placing blame on agents to deflect because she and Biden are not going to change how they are handling this.”
Another source was more blunt, saying that the outrage “just proves what absolute idiots they are.”
“With basic knowledge and two brain cells, anyone knows those agents use split reins. They do use them as a whip, on their horses,” the agent said. “This helps get a quicker response from the horse to move out when needed, especially when the horse may be hesitant with groups of people or other animals.”
“Again it is clear that those ‘in charge,’ a term that is disgusting to use, have no clue about our operations and frankly operate by ignorance and unhinged emotions,” the agent said.
Again, Democrats and the media said nothing for days as this turned into a humanitarian crisis. It was only when they found a (completely false) narrative they felt fit their political cause that they said anything.
I'm still in awe12,000 people were kept in squalor conditions, sitting in their own shit, in makeshift tents, in 100 degree heat for 4 days and our media completely ignored it, until they could use one photo to scream "how inhumane" at the top fo their blue check lungs. Frauds. https://t.co/CDmCEzFvXo
