Do you remember the Democrat and media outrage over the completely fake story about Border Patrol agents supposedly whipping migrants from their horses.
The story has been debunked repeatedly. The agents were riding horses with reins, they were not carrying whips.
The agents involved have been cleared of any wrongdoing, but the Biden administration is going to punish them anyway because they just can’t admit they were wrong.

Border Patrol agents fume as DHS prepares to punish officers caught up in ‘whip’ controversy: ‘Bull—-‘
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.”
Fox News reported Tuesday that DHS is preparing to discipline “multiple” horseback Border Patrol agents involved in the incident of Haitian migrants at the U.S.-Mexico border back in September, where some Democrats and immigration activists incorrectly believed they saw agents whipping Haitian migrants.
A police group is suing over this.

Police group sues Biden administration over Border Patrol ‘whipping’ investigation
A national law enforcement organization has sued the Biden administration’s top border officials for withholding information about how the White House handled a 2021 incident in which President Joe Biden accused Border Patrol agents of whipping migrants.
The National Police Association announced Thursday morning that it had filed a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the Department of Homeland Security and its U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency for failing to respond to a February request for all records regarding CBP’s investigation into the Del Rio, Texas, incident last September.
“Recent media reports indicate the Administration is planning to charge the agents with ‘administrative violations’ to save face and prevent the need to admit the whipping accusations were false, defamatory, and unconscionable,” NPA spokeswoman retired Sgt. Betsy Brantner Smith said in a statement , referring to a Washington Examiner report .
“We believe our lawsuit will result in DHS and CBP conforming to the law and handing over the communications and documents that prove the Administration knew their accusations against these agents were false and took no corrective action.”
This was a fake news story promoted by the liberal media but Democrats are acting on it anyway.
These are the same people who called Trump a fascist. Unreal.
