Psaki tells reporters ‘border agents should never again use whips on migrants’

The ongoing humanitarian catastrophe at the border that is a result of President Joe Biden’s failed immigration policies has resulted in shock and outrage after video footage of thousands of refugees near Del Rio, Texas exposed the lack of leadership in Washington, D.C.

Moving quickly to protect the nation’s 46th president from the political fallout, the narrative engineers in the media unleashed a racially charged disinformation campaign, claiming that Border Patrol agents were using whips to round up errant Haitian immigrants, a blatant falsehood that nonetheless was promoted by the White House.

During Monday’s press briefing, press secretary Jen Psaki responded to questions from the tag team of reporters led by Yamiche Alcindor of PBS about the grossly misleading images that have triggered the left, lending credence to the reports that conjured the dark overtones of slavery that liberals have successfully exploited to silence critics and advance their agenda.

Psaki initially hedged, responding that she had not seen the “full context.”

When asked by Alcindor if the agents who were “seemingly using whips” would face disciplinary action, Psaki replied, “I mean, Yamiche, it’s all good questions. We just saw this footage. It’s horrible to watch. I just have to get more information on it.”

Alcindor’s reporting for “PBS NewsHour” relies heavily on the accounts of activists, hardly unbiased observers of the situation on the ground.

“Now, I should also note that there are human rights activists who say that sending people back into Haiti, a country that is facing so many crises, from gang violence to, of course, the aftermath of the assassination of the president and the aftermath of the earthquake, that it is simply not the right thing to do,” she reported.

Alcindor added, “One activist put it this way. She told me: “Sending people back into Haiti is like sending children into a burning house.”

Some, including the National Fraternal Order Of Police, the largest police organization in the U.S. were quick to point out that the “whips” were actually the reins used with the horses, but the purveyors of fake news in the activist media weren’t about to let the truth spoil their sensationalism.

Others on Twitter who have grown accustomed to such fibs from the media flogged Alcindor for her suggestion that CBP was whipping the Haitians.

Meanwhile, Biden’s border czar Vice President Kamala Harris, who has done nothing to mitigate the immigration disaster since she was put in charge of overseeing the situation, chimed in.

While the Biden administration has been an unmitigated dumpster fire, no institution has failed America more than the media.
