(PatrioticPost.com)- FOX News reported that last week, Border Patrol agents accused of whipping Haitian migrants at the southern border had been found not guilty of any crimes by a judge.
A picture of agents riding horses went viral in September. Some people said the agents “whipped” migrants. This is not true. There were no whips in this case. The horses had reins on them. President Joe Biden was not happy with the officers.
“I take responsibility,” Biden said. “It was horrible to see, to see people treated like they did, with horses nearly running them over. People being strapped. It’s outrageous.”
No one was strapped. Biden, in effect, said the border agents “acted stupidly,” with no knowledge of the situation.
They used “brutal and inappropriate” methods, White House spokesman Josh Earnest said at the time, doubling down on the White House’s stupidity.
On Monday, Fox News correspondent Peter Doocy talked about the Fox News story about the agents being cleared of any wrongdoing.
Doocy wondered if Press Secretary Jen Psaki would say sorry for the things they said about the agents?
Doocy said that it’d been determined that the border patrol officers the president said were whipping migrants have been told they won’t be charged with crimes. Doocy asked Jen Psaki when the president would say sorry to the people who were maligned?
Psaki said a process and an investigation had been sent to the Department of Homeland Security, and they’re going to look into the matter. She said she didn’t have any news about that.
Doocy continued and said that it was alleged that the border agents had been whipping people, which is against the law, and they’ve been told that they will not be charged with a crime.
Psaki again deflected and said that the Department of Homeland Security had been looking into it as far as she knew. She said she’d let them tell everyone what happened.
Doocy pressed and said that she said that the officers used “brutal and inappropriate methods. He asked if she would say sorry to them.
Psaki repeated that there was an investigation into how they were behaving and that the investigation is ongoing.
“Homeland Security will say when it’s going to happen, and I’m sure we’ll say something about it after,” Psaki reiterated.
Last week, the New York Post said that the Biden administration had written a 500-page report about the incident, but the newspaper said it doesn’t know what it says.
