Speaking to reporters at the White House Wednesday afternoon, Press Secretary Jen Psaki tripled down on false claims and smears Border Patrol agents mounted on horseback used “brutal tactics” against illegal Haitians repeatedly violating U.S. immigration laws.

Earlier this week, members of the leftist media and Democrat operatives falsely accused Border Patrol agents of “whipping” illegal Haitians. Agents aren’t issued whips and they were using leather reins to control their horses as a number of men refused to follow orders and illegally entered the United States from Mexico.
From a Border Patrol source: “Agents use their reins for a lot of reasons. Primarily it's used to steer the horse, but agents will also spin them sometimes to deter people from getting too close to the horse…We are not aware of anyone being struck with the reins.” https://t.co/yxxyoAuklh pic.twitter.com/t3o3h9dJbL

For all you Twitter warriors out there: these are NOT whips. And no, Border Patrol agents are NOT "whipping" people.
They are REINS… Stay with us here, like a steering wheel is used to drive a car, the reins are used to “drive” the horse.

Despite the facts, the Biden administration has continued the narrative in order to distract from the ongoing catastrophe at the border.
The situation in Del Rio, Texas and the images I’ve seen are horrible. Human beings should never be treated in that way and I'm deeply troubled by the images I saw. @DHSgov has launched a thorough investigation into the matter. pic.twitter.com/uXI2I4eWsE
