While the White House has long since abandoned support for the vital work that Border Patrol agents do, Biden has added fresh fuel to the fire of abandonment by threatening to punish agents for making their best efforts to protect the border despite grossly depleted resources.
Recalling the videos making rounds on the Internet of upwards of 10,000+ Haitian migrants stationed underneath a bridge, it is relatively straightforward to see how border patrol agents quickly became overwhelmed by the mass of migrants stampeding for entry to the United States, and, ostensibly, government handouts funded by taxpayers.
Typically in exchange for blindly voting Democrat, no matter what the damage in the long run.
In addition to the video shared by the likes of Senator Ted Cruz, other journalists took photos of the crisis that were promptly exploited by the Biden administration to further dehumanize Border Patrol during the most difficult time in their careers.
Specifically, freelance photojournalist Paul Ratje took photos of Border Patrol agents who were riding horses, using split reins.
However, the split reins were quickly turned into “whips” by the fictional news media, in spite of Ratje himself declaring that migrants had never been whipped.
During an interview with El Paso News, Ratje declared that he had never seen Border Patrol agents whip anyone.
“[The agent] was swinging [the rein], but it can be misconstrued when you’re looking at the picture,” Ratje observed.
“I’ve never seen them whip anyone,” he added forcefully.
Despite the commentary from Ratje, the White House has apparently bought the story promoted by the fictional news media, declaring that administrative charges are likely to be filed against the beleaguered agents.
One of the charges includes “conduct unbecoming,” apparently due to agents’ exasperated commentary towards the relentless migrants.
Charges may be filed imminently, further demoralizing already disheartened agents.
The decision to punish Border Patrol agents emerges at a curious time, given that a caravan estimated to exceed well over 15,000 migrants is barreling towards the United States.
