Biden Admin Finds Way To Punish Border Patrol Agents Falsely Accused Of “Whipping” Migrants Even After Clearing Them
“the agency’s Office of Professional Responsibility found multiple infractions, but ones that were a far cry from Biden’s claim that migrants were whipped”
As you may recall, in September of last year, Border Patrol agents were accused of “whipping” migrants at the southern border.
Biden ran to the cameras as fast as he could and declared, “those people will pay.”
In September, Biden smeared Border Patrol agents: “It’s outrageous. I promise you those people will pay. An investigation underway now and there will be consequences.”

Now, months later, an investigation has found that these agents didn’t whip anyone, yet they are still going to be punished. Why?
FOX News reports:
CBP finds ‘no evidence’ Border Patrol agents whipped Haitian migrants, but still seeks to discipline them
The head of Customs and Border Protection (CBP) on Friday said there was “no evidence” that Border Patrol struck Haitian migrants with their reins or used whips in Del Rio, Texas, last year, implicitly rebuking the false claim made by President Biden and other top Democrats — even as the agency recommended punishment for the agents for infractions such as “offensive” language and unnecessary force.
“[DHS’ Office of Professional Responsibility] found no evidence Border Patrol agents involved in this incident struck anyone with their reins intentionally or otherwise,” CBP Commissioner Chris Magnus said at a press conference, in which he also said that agents were not carrying whips…
While the core complaint against the agents was found to be false, the agency’s Office of Professional Responsibility found multiple infractions, but ones that were a far cry from Biden’s claim that migrants were whipped. Magnus said that an agent was found to have used “denigrating and offensive” language against migrants regarding national origin and gender, and was accused of having maneuvered a horse around a child in an “unsafe manner.”
The report also faults agents for using an “unmoderated” tactical radio, of having insufficient training for the situation, and for an “unnecessary use of force” to drive the migrants back.
In other words, they didn’t do the awful things Democrats and the media accused them of, so other reasons were found to ruin their lives.
Of course, no one high up in government is being held accountable for the border crisis that led to this situation. That would be crazy.
What’s being done to these men is a disgrace.

And the flood at the border continues, unimpeded.
NEW: Another enormous single group of approximately 300 migrants have crossed illegally into Eagle Pass. Many of them struggling in the heat. We gave out all the water we had. There are currently only two Border Patrol agents on scene, as they remain overwhelmed. @FoxNews pic.twitter.com/m6bu5eGhJt

Some people have suggested that Biden deserves to be impeached for not defending the southern border.
