As most of you know by now, several Border Patrol agents are under investigation for tactics used during the Haitian surge at the Del Rio, TX, border.
Even though Democrat leadership, from Joe Biden to Kamala Harris to Secretary Mayorkas (and plenty of others) have slammed Border Patrol, Mayorkas says there will be a fair investigation into the incident.
CNN’s Jake Tapper called Mayorkas out on that and, once again, had Mayorkas double taking his way out of the interview.
How Can It Be Fair?
CNN has been exposed plenty of times pushing bogus narratives, so it was nice to see Tapper actually check the facts before piling on.
In this case, he took the time to view ALL the videos, which completely debunked what Democrats had said about Border Patrol agents.
This included Joe Biden declaring war on the agents, threatening that they “will pay” for what they did.
Well, they didn’t do anything, but something tells me they are still going to pay because of all the outrage created by Democrats.
That was the exact point Tapper made regarding the possibility of a fair investigation.
He stated, “How can DHS claim to have an independent investigation into these Border Patrol agents when the president says ‘those people will pay’ and you say the images ‘horrified us’?”
Mayorkas responded, “Jake, I think it’s quite clear that what the images suggest horrified the American public.
“What those images suggest, what they appeared to portray was horrifying, and that I think deserves attention.
“That is quite different than fact determinations and I will tell you, I served as a federal prosecutor for 12 years, and we conducted independent investigations despite what appearances might have been and the public outcry about them.”
I would interject that the only Americans that were outraged were the left, mostly because Biden and his fellow Democrats got them all worked up, even evoking images of slavery, which was the next point made by Tapper.
He stated, “But that’s the thing. Some of the initial descriptions of those images were just patently false.
“There’s now video out there that provides more context. Having seen the video, are you certain that there was actually wrongdoing?”
As good as that was, Tapper had a great zinger at the end of the interview where Mayorkas was trying to suck up to Border Patrol…
Since last night, reports have surfaced that the investigation is coming up empty, but leadership is still looking to discipline those agents to keep the egg off Biden’s face.
Rumors are that the agents in the video will be suspended for a couple of days due to language used when trying to move the Haitians back over the river.
However, even that is ridiculous and simply a way for Democrats to keep pushing this nonsensical racial narrative against Border Patrol agents.
I still fully expect ANY disciplinary measure handed down to generate significant pushback among Border Patrol agents.
