Since September last year, border patrol agents have been under federal investigation for allegedly whipping Haitian migrants on the southern border. After a lengthy investigation, Customs and Border Patrol has found no evidence that the whipping actually occurred, though this seemed evident only days after it happened.
It’s unclear why it took nearly an entire year to come to this conclusion considering eyewitness accounts refuted the idea that whipping occurred. It would also be virtually impossible for agents to control their horses with reins while also using the reins to whip migrants.
This was yet another fake news blunder from the mainstream media with headlines like “U.S. border guard uses whip-like cord against Haitian migrants” (Reuters) and “Border Patrol agents are whipping Haitian migrants at the US-Mexico border in Texas” (VICE).
Many even claimed that the agents were using physical whips, despite border patrol agents not possessing any form of the whip.
Many politicians also interjected with Joe Biden saying “I promise you, those people will pay. There will be an investigation underway now and there will be consequences. There will be consequences.” Prompting a hideously long and drawn-out investigation only to discover absolutely nothing that wasn’t already known.
Nancy Pelosi condemned the “the inappropriate use of what appear to be whipped by Border Patrol officers on horseback to intimidate migrants.”
