Horseback Border Patrol Agents Could Get Minimal Punishment

For what, doing their jobs? For attempting to block all the thousands of illegals attempting to stream into the United States, which is against U.S. federal law? Stopping illegals is a main component of the job of the Border Patrol. But, remember, we’re dealing with spiteful people in the White House (and Congress) who created the situation at the border, who want chaos and tens or hundreds of thousands of people streaming across the border

Border Patrol agents who Biden said would ‘pay’ could get minimal punishment, officials say

The Border Patrol agents who were pictured blocking migrants on horseback in Del Rio and who President Biden promised would “pay” as he echoed false claims the agents “strapped” migrants — could get little more than a few days suspension, if the investigation turns out as some senior administration officials hope.

spite houseThe agents are at the center of a Department of Homeland Security investigation after images emerged which Democratic lawmakers and left-wing activists claimed showed them using “whips” against migrants. Officials and agents quickly noted that the agents were in fact using long reins to control their horses, and were twirling them to move the horse forward, not to attack migrants.

Since then, video has emerged supporting that claim, while the photographer behind the original images has said he did not see migrants whipping anyone. But the administration has doubled down, with DHS Secretary Mayorkas claiming the images “conjured up the worst elements of our nation’s ongoing battle against systemic racism.” Biden, meanwhile, added fuel to the fire of the claims the agents were whipping, and even running down, migrants.

“To see people treated like they did, horses barely running over, people being strapped — it’s outrageous,” Biden said on Friday, making a whipping motion with his hand. “I promise you, those people will pay. There will be an investigation underway now and there will be consequences. There will be consequences.”

Exactly what those consequences will be is up for debate. Despite the angry rhetoric from the White House, senior administration officials told Fox News that the investigation should produce little more than a suspension of a few days with pay for the agents — and should be a “non-issue.”

The Office Of Professional Responsibility is in charge of the investigation, and there are six agents under investigation. At this point, there’s no way they can get a fair review, not with the POTUS stating “those people will pay” and “there will be consequence”. You know, the people who ultimately work for the Executive Office, so, a tainted investigation. Any negative consequences will be illegitimate, and this, again, is exactly what a union is for, to protect the workers from unfair bosses.

Those with knowledge of the matter say that investigation could rest on what the agents said, rather than what they did. One agent was filmed saying: “You use your women?, this is why your country’s sh–, because you use your women for this.”

However, “yelling at people is not a crime,” the official said, adding that the National Border Patrol Council had sent in lawyers and the men are “well represented.”

If they are given even light punishment, it will dissuade the men and women of the Border Patrol from doing their jobs, leading to more problems at the border, just as we’ve seen in the Democratic Party run cities who’ve been treating their police like garbage, even trying to defund them. And any finding of punishment will certainly end up in court, per the union contract. Especially with

(Fox News) Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas admitted Sunday that the vast majority of Haitian migrants who crossed the southern U.S. border in recent weeks have already been released into the United States, and it is possible that more will follow them.

So far, approximately 12,400 of the people are having their cases heard by immigration judges, while another 5,000 are being processed by the Department of Homeland Security. Currently,, only 3,000 are in detention.

“Approximately, I think it’s about ten thousand or so, twelve thousand,” Mayorkas told “Fox News Sunday” when asked how many have already been released. He then acknowledged that this number could very well go up as the 5,000 other cases are processed.

“It could be even higher. The number that are returned could be even higher. What we do is we follow the law as Congress has passed it,” Mayorkas said.

The law states they should be blocked from entering. Except in the stupid cases where they claim “asylum”, for which no more than 10% qualify initially, and less after a deep review. The law certainly doesn’t say to simply release around 12,000 into the U.S. with a promise to show up for their court date.
