The Biden gang has finally addressed the border crisis, however not to actually confront the more than 10,000 illegal Haitians that suddenly appeared last week crammed under a Texas overpass. Nor are they doing anything about the thousands of illegal migrants wading knee deep through the Rio Grande river towards Del Rio.
Biden’s displeasure isn’t with those migrants breaking immigration law, but with those over worked Border Patrol agents tasked with the responsibility of enforcing immigration law. The laws that the Biden camp has thus far seemingly ignored or allowed to be broken with impunity.
On Friday, a visibly agitated Biden threatened those mounted Border Patrol agents vowing, “Those people will pay.”
That startling comment was followed by a promise by number 46 to investigate the incident of mounted agents attempting to reign-in on horseback, surging Haitian migrants refusing to comply with orders for them to go back to the Mexican side of the border.
During the impromptu press briefing Biden used the photo image of mounted Border Patrol agents twirling their reins near running migrants as a pretext to suggest that the agents were whipping the migrants, while in actuality the action was to control the horse, from getting to close to the migrants.
Biden continued vilifying the agents stating,”Horses run them over, people being strapped.” Adding, “Of course I take responsibility. I’m president, but it was horrible what you saw. To see people treated like they did, horses barely running over, people being strapped, it’s outrageous.”
Biden continued ranting on. “I promise you, those people will pay. There will be an investigation underway now and there will be consequences. There will be consequences.”
He added even further that it was embarrassment and in his mind, “dangerous.”
“It’s wrong,” he said. “It sends the wrong message around the world. It sends the wrong message at home. It’s simply not who we are.”
However, Biden and the rest of the elite class of Democrats along with the mainstream media apparently know nothing about the procedures involved in how mounted police use horses in controlling unruly crowds. They hold onto reins to control their horses and twirling their reins is standard operating procedure within every mounted police unit in America.
Biden’s ranting and raving caught the ear of Brandon Judd, head of the National Border Patrol Council. The officer lambasted Biden for ignoring due process by attempting to skew any outcome of a formal investigation
“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?” he told Fox News in an interview. “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?”
Judd said Biden’s comments were, “completely and totally outrageous.”Adding, “He is playing politics with Border Patrol agents’ lives, that’s what he’s doing.”
Moreover, if a formal investigation is required, who better than the photographer who was perhaps a few yards away snapping the images that we’ve all seen repeated in countless news outlets and on social media.
Photographer Paul Ratje had without a doubt the best vantage point to witness whether anyone was hit with the reins. He stated on Friday that Border Patrol agents never whipped anyone.
“Some of the Haitian men started running, trying to go around the horses,” Paul Ratje told KTSM NEWS. “I’ve never seen them whip anyone,” he added. “He was swinging it, but it can be misconstrued when you’re looking at the picture.”
Biden and company have used the pandemic and now mounted Border Patrol agents has a ruse to deflect from his abysmal policies.
