The Facts

  • Texas border patrol agents who were accused of "whipping" Haitian migrants are reportedly set to be disciplined by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

  • The original allegations of "whipping" were quickly debunked, as the agents were determined to be swirling their long reins to control the horses. But the images went viral and caused outrage among many, including Pres. Biden, who said the agents would be punished.

The Spin

Right narrative

This is authoritarian behavior on the part of Biden. He wasn't able to punish the agents for criminal misconduct, so he's decided to conjure up some "administrative violations" to target agents who were simply doing their job but went against the open border philosophy of his liberal voters. Every American should be outraged.

Left narrative

Even if they weren't using whips on migrants, the use of horses to herd human beings is still inhumane and was ended as a practice by federal law enforcement. Immigration should never be deemed a crime, and once we learn that, we won't have agents treating them like criminals.
