Republican Texas Governor Greg Abbott said this Sunday that he will hire any or all of the Border Patrol agents who were falsely accused by liberals and Democrats of whipping Haitian illegals at the southern border if they get fired by the liberal Biden team.
“If he takes any revenge action against them whatsoever — I have worked along with these Border Patrol officials — I want them to understand something. If they are at risk of losing their job by a president who is leaving and ignoring his duty to secure our southern border, you have a job inside the state of Texas. I will hire you to aid Texas in securing our border,” Abbott said during his interview on “Fox News Sunday.”
Last week, viral photos revealed Border Patrol agents on horseback stopping Haitian illegals from forcibly entering the United States.
The agents were initially alleged to have used “whips” on the migrants but agents and officials have debunked these claims. They said that long reins are used to manage the horses and deter people from getting too close and that no one was hit.
The photographer who took these pictures also reported he never saw any border agent whip any of the illegals.
Still, President Biden promised to penalize these agents.
“To see people treated like this? Horses running people over? People getting strapped? It is outrageous. I promise you, these people will pay,” he stated on Friday.
The Department of Homeland Security has also said it would conduct a full investigation into the issue.
The border agents were removed from duty pending the upcoming investigation and horses will not be used any longer by the United States Customs and Border Protection.
This comes at a time when Biden is coming under more criticisms and anger from both sides of the political spectrum. People are growing angry over his terrible management of the border and his open border agenda. This is in addition to the growing anxiety over America’s failing economy and increasing inflation, which is hurting Americans at the grocery store and at the pump. With Biden’s mounting problems, it is shocking to see him spend time on seeking revenge against a couple of border agents who were only doing their job.
