As Twitchy reported earlier, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki doubled down on the “horrific and horrible” footage of Border Patrol agents doing their jobs securing the border at her press briefing Wednesday, telling the press the officers were using “brutal and inappropriate measures against innocent people.” On positive: Psaki did confirm that the administration had at least seen the photos of 12,000 or so Haitian immigrants camped out in an underpass, so they have no excuse for ignoring the problem anymore.
Psaki also confirmed that those Border Patrol agents captured on video “whipping” migrants with their nonexistent whips have been placed on leave pending an investigation.
White House press secretary Jen Psaki confirmed the border agents on horseback have been placed on leave, pending a DHS investigation.
"The president remains committed to putting in place a humane, orderly immigration system."https://t.co/GnUGTHs8XX

“Brutal and inappropriate”
Says a person who has never done hard work in her life. Let alone being a LEO.
1. This wouldn’t have happened if they weren’t here illegally.
2. Just deflecting from not having any solution.
3. COVID mitigation plan for immigrants?

Please go to the border for 24 hours and see first hand what Border Patrol agents have to go through. All that while they are being undermined by an administration hellbent on changing the population of the country permanently. Overwhelm the system is their mantra.

Go to the border? We’re still waiting on confirmation that Joe Biden has ever been to the border.
There is zero evidence these border agents whipped or assaulted anybody

These people are evil. Are not worthy or capable of being in charge. The people in question did nothing wrong but protect us.

The only people who should be placed on leave is Biden, Harris and their entire administration. Permamently!

This administration blames everyone but themselves
So Border Patrol agents caught on camera doing their thankless jobs are put on leave and investigated while the Biden administration does nothing about thousands and thousands of migrants living under an overpass for weeks. Investigate that.
