Biden betrays Border Patrol, set to punish agents involved in discredited "whipping" scandal

Published in Blog on June 16, 2022 by Jakob Fay

Last September, mounted Border Patrol agents in Texas were caught in a national controversy after footage surfaced of them apparently whipping migrants in Del Rio. Immigration activists took advantage of the story prematurely, rushing to conclude that the agents were mistreating the immigrants and that they, as President Joe Biden said before any investigation had even been concluded, would pay.

The narrative was misleading, however. It quickly became obvious that the mounted agents weren’t using whips at all; they were using reins. And not for the purpose of striking anyone, obviously, but for the purposes of steering their horses.

The media’s narrative quickly crumbled and the Border Patrol agents were cleared of any wrongdoing, having suffered irreversibly damaging defamation and slander.

At the time of the “whipping” incident, the border patrol agents in question were dealing with the fallout of the President’s disastrous immigration crisis. But Biden turned his back on the honorable people of his own country, people who were just doing their jobs.

Reports have recently emerged indicating that the Biden administration, working with the Department of Homeland Security, is set to punish those agents all the same, even though the investigation cleared them of any criminal activity. Needless to say, the Border Patrol is livid.

“What we’re seeing right now is the executive branch weaponizing the Office of Professional Responsibility to go after what President Biden perceives as political opponents,” said National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd.

“He doesn’t like the Border Patrol. He has never liked the mission of the Border Patrol. And now he is going after these agents because he panders to open border activists. This should never happen in this country.”

Judd added that “we've had [Rep Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez] come out and equate us to Nazis, you had the Squad come out and made false allegations that we were forcing people to drink out of toilets. These are the types of things that we have to deal with from politicians that simply do not like the mission.”

"They don't like the fact that we're enforcing the laws of the United States. And so they come out and they attack us."

U.S. Representative Kevin McCarthy expressed a similar opinion, saying, “Border patrol agents deserve a president who will support them, not smear them — which is exactly what President Biden did when he promised, without knowing the facts, that agents would 'pay' for the false allegations of 'whipping' migrants.”

What makes Biden's betrayal of the Border Patrol far worse, is that he used it to make respectable American citizens into a scapegoat for his failed immigration policies, distracting from the true problem at hand and putting the attention on a discredited falsehood: the myth of mounted agents wielding whips.

In doing so, he revealed his true colors. It really is as simple as Judd said: "They don't like the fact that we're enforcing the laws of the United States. And so they come out and they attack us.”

This brazen sellout of an agency that risks so much to enforce our laws and protect our people, is shameful. Unfortunately, the political establishment in America seems to care more about advancing its cause and securing power than doing what is right by the American people.

Petition your state legislator

Almost everyone knows that our federal government is on a dangerous course. The unsustainable debt combined with crushing regulations on states and businesses is a recipe for disaster.

What is less known is that the Founders gave state legislatures the power to act as a final check on abuses of power by Washington, DC. Article V of the U.S. Constitution authorizes the state legislatures to call a convention for proposing needed amendments to the Constitution. This process does not require the consent of the federal government in Washington, DC.

I support the Convention of States Project; a national effort to call a convention under Article V of the United States Constitution, restricted to proposing amendments that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction, and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress.

I want our state to be one of the necessary 34 states to pass a resolution calling for this kind of Article V Convention. You can find a copy of the model resolution and the Article V Pocket Guide (which explains the process and answers many questions) here: https://conventionofstates.com/handbook_pdf

I ask that you support the Convention of States Project and consider becoming a co-sponsor of the resolution. Please respond to my request by informing the national COS team of your position, or sending them any questions you may have:

info@conventionofstates.com or (540) 441-7227.

Thank you so much for your service to the people of our district.

Respectfully, [Your Name]
