Remember that story about the border patrol agents ‘whipping’ illegal migrants who were trying to cross the border? Yeah, totally not true.
The National Police Association (NPA) announced that it is suing the Biden administration over the 2021 “whipping” incidents in Del Rio, Texas.
As originally reported by TownHall.com, “the NPA filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) & Customs and Border Protection (CBP) for withholding information about how the White House handled the event, in which President Joe Biden falsely accused Border Patrol agents of whipping illegal aliens.”
Apparently, the DHS and CBP failed to reply to a Feb. 2022 request for all records including texts, emails, phone calls, and other correspondences pertaining to the Custom and Border Protection’s investigation into the ‘whipping’ incident last September in accordance to the Freedom Of Information Act.
According to the Washington Examiner, Mayorkas stood before Congress promising to conclude the investigation within a “matter of days, not weeks.” However, no conclusion has yet been released.
Here’s where things get diabolically ridiculous regarding the investigation – DHS officials reportedly said that the conclusion would not be shared because it would acquit the accused agents and “embarrass the Biden Administration,” tactics commonly used in communist countries like China and North Korea when the government tries to save face from any wrongdoing or cover-up lies that have been perpetuated.
The Democrats and Biden Administration have been notorious for misleading or flat-out lying to the American people throughout Biden’s presidency, and the ‘whipping’ incident is just another example of how little they care about telling the truth especially if it goes against their narrative.
The White House allegedly knew the accusations against border patrol agents were false, yet no apologies or acknowledgments were made.
In a statement, NPA spokesperson Sgt. Betsy Brantner Smith said, “we believe our lawsuit will result in DHS and CBP conforming to the law and handing over the communications and documents that prove the Administration knew their accusations against these agents were false and took no corrective action.”
Sgt. Smith also claims that according to recent media reports, Biden is planning to charge the border patrol agents falsely accused of whipping migrants with “administrative violations” in order to avoid having to admit they made a mistake.
