Biden Persecutes Border Patrol Agents Found Innocent

Democrats hate law enforcement of any type

The Biden administration wants an open border so criminals and terrorists can waltz right into the United States. So, of course, it loathes border security agents.

Wolf: On Sept. 19, 2021, photographers captured images of Border Patrol agents on horseback patrol trying to prevent illegal aliens from crossing the border near Del Rio, Texas. To any reasonable person, the photos showed Border Patrol agents controlling their horses in rough terrain while trying to prevent the rush of Haitian migrants from getting past them. The only thing “newsworthy” about these photos at the time should have been a visual confirmation of a border crisis driven by eight months of the new administration’s refusal to enforce immigration laws. Instead, the Biden administration jumped to politically convenient yet incorrect conclusions and vilified Border Patrol agents for doing their job.

In lockstep with the mainstream media, the Biden administration immediately amplified a lie that the Border Patrol agents were whipping the illegal aliens. President Joe Biden said, “It’s horrible what you saw. To see people like they did, with horses, running them over, people being strapped, it’s outrageous.”

Vice President Kamala Harris said, “As we all know it evoked images of some of the worst moments of our history where that kind of behavior has been used against the indigenous people of our country, has been used against African Americans during times of slavery.” Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas added that the images “troubled me profoundly” and that “one cannot weaponize a horse” against illegal aliens trying to cross the border.

This rush to judgment and mischaracterization of the Border Patrol’s actions was disgraceful. The agents themselves and the photographer who snapped the now infamous picture immediately stated that no whipping occurred. The DHS Office of Inspector General immediately refused to take on the case, and the U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Texas declined to take the case up for prosecution in March of this year.

But the story doesn’t end there. The president went even further when he added, “I promise you, those people will pay. There is an investigation underway right now and there will be consequences.” Vice President Harris echoed that, “There needs to be consequences and accountability.”

Recently, the result of a 10-month investigation by U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s Office of Professional Responsibility was finally released. The resulting 511-page report fully exonerates the Border Patrol of the whipping hoax, declaring, “There is no evidence that [Border Patrol Agents] involved in this incident struck, intentionally or otherwise, any migrant with their reins.” Yet, the agents were faulted with “administrative” violations, including yelling at the illegal aliens to stop and using the wrong radio frequency for communicating with the patrol station. Essentially the Border Patrol is blamed for the unlawful actions of the migrants.

 

Unfortunately, this assault is not the first or last time for this administration. For months, Border Patrol agents have been asking for effective policies to help end this historic border crisis. Yet month after month, they receive little to no help from their political leadership, and morale is at an all-time low. The current political leadership delivers no real solutions to assist the Border Patrol with their job and doubles down on failed policies that actually make their difficult job even harder.

It is worse than just the border patrol agents.
A small paragraph from the AP in the middle of the local paper caught my attention last week. The Pentagon announced they had completed a comprehensive, exhaustive investigation. They concluded there was insufficient evidence to Court Martial the Air Force crews that operated out of Kabul Airport during the withdrawal. In September 2021, the crews were informed they were being investigated for negligent homicide. Sec Austin and Gen Milley were trying to punish them for the deaths of Afghans who fell from the landing gear of their planes.

FOUR ( 4 ) Non-Comments so far – the censors really are doing a fine upstanding job ( NOT ) All FOUR are spam / scam items 100% unrelated to this article. Well-Done Lifezette – you are the best at what you don’t do.
Does ANY real American still expect the present “administration” to take ANY proper actions on ANY subject unless it is DETRIMENTAL to the interests of the USA ? I thought NOT ! Roll on 2024.

Come November, “We, the people” need to have our voices heard loud and clear with our votes. We need to be the majority to ensure “justice” is done and that our laws are properly enforced

The Biden administration simply refuse to uphold the law of the land and must be held accountable for their actions. Come November when Republicans take over the house and senate must hold President Biden accountable for tearing this country apart. Biden is destroying this nation at staggering speed! Presidents’ Executive privileges’ must be limited. By the time Biden ends his term China will control our country.
