Jen Psaki has her hands full these days.
The White House press secretary was forced to address the recent images of U.S. Border Patrol agents pursuing Hatian migrants while on horseback; the agents chased the migrants along the Rio Grande.
“People understandably have questions…about the images we have seen. We feel those images are horrible and horrific. There is an investigation the President certainly supports overseen by the Department of Homeland Security, which he has conveyed will happen quickly. I can also convey to you…we will no longer be using horses in Del Rio.”
The images certainly didn’t do much to advance the narrative that the Biden administration has the border situation in Del Rio under control. More than 12,000 Hatian migrants remain camped out underneath the International Bridge on the shore of the Rio Grande.

Jon Anfinsen, the President of Del Rio’s Border Patrol chapter, issued a response to the suspension of horse patrols.
“Suspending them all for even a brief amount of time takes away one of the few remaining units that have been in the field making arrests and rescues on a regular basis.”
