"Any mistreatment or abuse of a migrant is unacceptable, is against border patrol policy, training and our department's values," Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas says after Border Patrol agents were seen using whip-like cord on migrants.


Yesterday it was all the rage that the border patrol began using horses to bring order to the chaos on the border with the Haitian illegals. The media ran with the false accusation that the border patrol were whipping the illegals in order to contain them even though the border patrol didn’t have whips.

As the Fraternal Order of Police said yesterday, these are simply reins used to control the horse which were NOT being used as whips:

Well just like clockwork, Mayorkas came out today and claimed that all of this was horrible and that he would not tolerate it any longer:

Mayorkas said he was "horrified" by the situation.
"I was horrified by what I saw," Mayorkas told CNN's Brianna Keilar on "New Day." "I'm going to let the investigation run its course. But the pictures that I observed troubled me profoundly. That defies all of the values that we seek to instill in our people."
Mayorkas announced Monday that department would investigate the situation. When asked by Keilar if it was a "crisis," he called it a "heartbreaking situation" and a "tremendous challenge."
"I, by no means, diminish the humane issue that it presents, but I want to be clear that we do have a plan to address it, respecting the needs of the individuals and we are executing on that plan," he said.
Mayorkas said US authorities have "moved approximately 4,000, perhaps more than 4,000 migrants, from under that bridge already," adding that they are moving more migrants "very quickly to other processing centers so that we can ensure their security and safety and the security and safety of the community."
He added, "We expect to see dramatic change in the next 48 to 96 hours."
Asked about President Joe Biden's reaction to the video, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Tuesday he "also felt they were horrific and horrible."
"I think it's important for people to know that's not who we are, that's not who the Biden-Harris administration is, and we're going to absolutely pursue that investigation and get to the bottom of what happened here," she said on "CBS Mornings."
Mayorkas, who on Tuesday defended the use of horse patrols, said the images defy "all of the values that we seek to instill in our people" and said the US government and humanitarian organizations have been working to address the situation.
    "I saw the values that we do instill in our people in exhibition when I visited under the bridge and saw them work with the American Red Cross, the Department of Health and Human Services, World Central Kitchen, in addressing the needs of a vulnerable population of migrants under the bridge in Del Rio," he told Keilar. "That reflects who we are, and any mistreatment or abuse of an individual defies ... our values and who we are and what we stand for."
