The Biden administration is a complete disgrace.
A viral story popped up last year accusing Border Patrol agents of “whipping” migrants. The truth was that the Border Patrol agents were using reigns and were not whipping anyone.
For all you Twitter warriors out there: these are NOT whips. And no, Border Patrol agents are NOT "whipping" people.
They are REINS… Stay with us here, like a steering wheel is used to drive a car, the reins are used to “drive” the horse.

Border patrol agents who were falsely accused of “whipping” Haitian migrants as they attempted to illegally enter the US last September are set to be disciplined by the Department of Homeland Security.
The footage was circulated of agents on horseback allegedly striking fleeing migrants with ‘whips’ as they patrolled the Del Rio, Texas section of the border last summer.
The claims the officials had used the whips to hit the Haitians were soon debunked, and the truth was revealed that the horsemen had been using long reins to control the horses and were ‘herding’ the migrants, but no one was struck at any point. The agents were simply doing their job.
Despite the truth, the footage had already gone viral on social media, and the liberal left media including ABC, CBS, and NBC immediately accused border patrol of violence towards the migrants – a claim they have never retracted or amended. President Joe Biden couldn’t help but join in, vowing to “make them pay”.
Event the Biden administration knew nothing done here was wrong. An investigation by the DHS Office of Inspector General found no criminal conduct.
The Biden administration is still deciding to go after them – this time with “administrative violations.”
Border Patrol agents are furious.
Border Patrol agents are furious after it has emerged that the Department of Homeland Security is expected to punish multiple agents who were caught up in since-debunked allegations that they whipped Haitian migrants in Del Rio last year – exacerbating already rock-bottom morale among agents who see a politicized investigation designed to deliver a result for the White House.
“What we’re seeing right now is the executive branch weaponizing the Office of Professional Responsibility to go after what President Biden perceives as political opponents,” National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd told Fox News Digital. “He doesn’t like the Border Patrol. He has never liked the mission of the Border Patrol. And now he is going after these agents because he panders to open border activists. This should never happen in this country.”
“I am through being surprised” one agent told Fox, along with a countdown until the agent’s retirement date. Another source told Fox that they knew of a number of agents who were planning on shifting their retirement forward as a result.
Another described it as “f—- bulls–t”
“Those agents did nothing wrong,” the agent said.
Just another example of how big of a joke the Biden administration is. They are destroying America and yet all their time is focused on keeping debunked hoaxes alive.
