The "Original Fiction" here is the USBPS "whipping" people trying to come across the border. We now know that was a complete frigging fabrication of any truth.
"Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas was informed of a photographer’s account that he did not see Border Patrol agents whipping illegal migrants. just hours before Mayorkas made statements condemning the situation.
The Border Patrol agents have since been vindicated of the accusations that they whipped migrants.
“They knew that it wouldn’t matter that the truth was going to come out later. Because they know that the media is not going to cover it. So they went forward with a completely bogus story, misrepresenting facts and misleading the American public. That should not be tolerated from the President of the United States,” National Border Patrol Council Brandon Judd told the Daily Caller News Foundation.
The Biden administration’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas was informed that the photographer who took pictures of horseback Border Patrol agents said that he and his colleagues didn’t see any migrants being whipped, according to emails obtained by Heritage Foundation.
The incident, which occurred on Sept. 19 when thousands of Haitian migrants crossed the border illegally into Del Rio, Texas, overwhelmed Border Patrol agents on the ground. The images that circulated of the incident showed the horseback Border Patrol agents, who have since been cleared of the whipping accusations, trying to address the situation, using the reins of the horses to push the migrants back; many commentators claimed the agents were “whipping” the migrants.
A DHS colleague sent an email to Mayorkas including a news interview with the photographer who captured the incident and claimed he didn’t see Border Patrol agents whip anyone, according to the Sept. 24, 2021 emails obtained via a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request and shared with the Daily Caller News Foundation.
“The photographer behind the images depicting Border Patrol agents on horseback told KTSM things are not exactly what they seem when it comes to the photos,” read the news story, sent to Mayorkas by assistant secretary of DHS public affairs Marsha Espinosa, according to the emails.
“The photos caused outrage because from certain angles, it appears to show Border Patrol whipping migrants, but photographer Paul Ratje said he and his colleagues never saw agents whipping anyone,” the news story continued.
In addition to that LIE, USBP Calls In ‘Suicidologist’ To Address Rising Suicides Among Rank-And-File
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) tapped a “suicidologist” to address the rising suicides among its ranks amid a surge in illegal migration at the southern border, the Washington Examiner reported Wednesday.
Dr. Kent Corso, who began the role in early 2021 during high migrant encounters at the U.S.-Mexico border, was the first to do so for any government entity, according to the Examiner.
CBP authorities encountered over 2,000,000 migrants at the southern border between October 2021 and August 2022, surpassing records.
The spike has led to morale issues among CBP officials bearing the brunt of the surge.
“This administration continues to crumble what’s left of morale and is taking the U.S. Border Patrol to irreparable levels of destruction,” a Border Patrol agent stationed at the southern border previously told the Daily Caller News Foundation. “Standing behind someone has now taken a different meaning. Trust in leadership has been cheapened.”
In 2022, 11 CBP employees died by suicide, according to federal data obtained by the Examiner going back to 2007. The number was the highest in 2009, when there were 14 CBP suicides.
“For years in the federal government, in the military, in the private sector, we’ve played the short game with suicide, and not only has it not worked, but it’s not realistic or sustainable. The long game is changing culture and changing conversation, and that doesn’t happen behind a desk,” Corso told the Examiner.
