The Biden administration will reportedly soon charge Border Agents with “poor judgment” for allegedly telling migrants illegally entering the United States to return to Mexico.
Biden previously vowed to hold the agents accountable after images showed officers on horseback trying to prevent the immigrants from crossing the Rio Grande.
“To see people treated like they did, horses barely running over, people being strapped –- it’s outrageous,” Biden told reporters at the time. “I promise you, those people will pay.”
From the NY POST:
The Biden administration has signaled its intention to punish Texas border agents who were falsely accused of “whipping” Haitian migrants last year.
The Daily Caller reported Friday that U.S. Customs and Border Protection has proposed charging the agents with “poor judgement” and “unsafe conduct” in connection with the viral incident, though those suggestions have not yet been finalized.
The Post previously reported that the September 2021 encounter near Del Rio, which made international headlines and sparked a political firestorm, was the subject of an administrative investigation by CBP’s Office of Personal Responsibility.
