The “whipping” saga continues.

Despite being cleared of inflicting harm against migrants (i.e. there was never any whipping), the Biden Administration announced on Friday that it has referred four border agents for discipline over the viral incident from September 2021.

“It’s clear from the investigation that decisions made by some of the agency’s leadership, and the lack of appropriate policies and training all contributed to the incident,” CBP Commissioner Chris Magnus told reporters at a news conference. “But there is no justification for the actions of some of our personnel, including unprofessional and deeply offensive conduct.”

From The New York Post:

In a 511-page report, US Customs and Border Protection’s Office of Personal Responsibility said it had found no evidence that [Border Patrol agents] involved in this incident struck, intentionally or otherwise, any migrant with their reins,” though it did say the agents had used “unnecessary” force. At least one Border Patrol agent was also found to have used “denigrating and inappropriate language and to have maneuvered his horse unsafely near a child” during the incident.

The investigation also found “no evidence that any migrants were forced to return to Mexico or denied entry to the United States,” CBP said.

The commissioner did not identify the employees singled out for discipline, which officials said would come separately from the report’s release. Border Patrol union officials have vowed to contest any punishment, which could range from a letter of reprimand to termination.

The Border Patrol union already has one lawmaker on its side —Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX). Cruz shared the story on Twitter, saying he stands with the Border Patrol agents.

“Vengeful and cruel. Democrats smeared heroic Border Patrol agents with bogus attacks all based on a lie. I’m proud to unequivocally stand with the men and women of the Border Patrol.”

Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) also commented on the story, saying “Biden’s values are warped.”

“The Biden Administration is punishing Border Patrol agents for *trying to protect the border.* Biden’s values are warped: illegal immigrants get a pass while law enforcement officers are attacked. Anyone at DHS who signs off on this should resign.”

RNC Research shared a clip of CBP Commissioner Chris Magnus admitting the agents were never carrying whips.

“The agents involved in the Del Rio activity were not carrying whips … no evidence Border Patrol agents involved in this incident struck any person with their reins intentionally or otherwise.”
