The New York Times Had to Issue Correction Admitting ‘No Evidence’ of Border Patrol Whipping Migrants

Published

on

NYT

Instead of addressing and perhaps an attempt at even fixing problems we face in the United States, President Biden has turned his attention to “fix” a non-existent issue. After the liberal media ran wild with accusations that border patrol agents were “whipping” Haitian migrants at the border, suddenly we hear from Biden.

Perhaps because it was easy and cowardly. Biden said the treatment was despicable and vowed to investigate and bring action against the border agents who allegedly whipped immigrants trying to illegally enter the United States and make them “pay” for their actions.

The New York Times changed their entire narrative which helped to get the Biden administration up in arms. In an article published Friday, the Times’ article read:

“The images of agents on horseback chasing, and in some cases using the reins of their horses to strike at running migrants, came as Mr. Biden’s administration moved to forcefully round up and deport more than 2,000 of the 15,000 migrants who gathered in a makeshift camp in Del Rio, Texas.”

The Times added a correction stating: “An earlier version of this article overstated the behavior of some Border Patrol agents on horseback. While the agents waved their reins while pushing migrants back into the Rio Grande, The Times has not seen conclusive evidence that migrants were struck with the reigns.”

The specific sentence was changed to: “images of border patrol agents on horseback waving their reins while pushing migrants back into the Rio Grande have prompted a torrent of criticism from Democrats and civil rights groups.”

Associated Press reporter Sarah Blake Morgan tweeted video footage showing the border patrol agents were using their reins to steer horses, and not whipping migrants. Additionally, the photographer himself who took the photos gave interviews saying neither he nor his colleagues ever saw anyone being whipped by the border agents.

Mayorkas, DHS Further Diminish ICE Powers by Limiting Worksite Raids; Blame ‘Exploitative Employers’

Published

on

Alejandro Mayorkas

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas has just taken even more responsibility off illegal immigrants and placed it on the shoulders of employers and ICE instead. In a memo to acting ICE Director Tae Johnson, “Mayorkas argued that enforcement operations could be more effective when directed at employers of illegal immigrants, instead of immigrants themselves” reports National Review.

Mayorkas wrote:

“The deployment of mass worksite operations, sometimes resulting in the simultaneous arrest of hundreds of workers, was not focused on the most pernicious aspect of our country’s unauthorized employment challenge: exploitative employers. These highly visible operations misallocated enforcement resources while chilling, and even serving as a tool of retaliation for, worker cooperation in workplace standards investigations.”

A Department of Homeland Security press release was almost identical:

“Under the [Trump] administration, these resource-intensive operations resulted in the simultaneous arrest of hundreds of workers and were used as a tool by exploitative employers to suppress and retaliate against workers’ assertion of labor laws.”

Mayorkas has been making moves in this new direction for months. National Review writes:

Mayorkas previously directed Immigration, Customs and Enforcement to prioritize undocumented immigrants who are deemed to pose a threat to public safety for deportation, as opposed to migrants who are deemed “contributing” members of society.

“The fact an individual is a removable noncitizen therefore should not alone be the basis of an enforcement action against them,” Mayorkas wrote in new enforcement guidelines on September 30. “We will use our discretion and focus our enforcement resources in a more targeted way.”

Border Patrol agents encountered 212,672 migrants at the border in July, the first time in 21 years that monthly encounters breached 200,000. In August Border Patrol agents logged 208,887 migrant encounters, with over a million people entering the U.S. illegally since the start of this year.

DHS Announces New Rules To Cut Back On Deportations

Published

on

DHS

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) ordered authorities to prioritize deporting illegal immigrants who “pose a threat to national security, public safety, and border security” because the government does not have enough resources to handle the record-breaking illegal immigration that has occurred under President Biden’s administration.

“The fact an individual is a removable noncitizen, therefore, should not alone be the basis of an enforcement action against them,” Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas wrote in a memo. “We will use our discretion and focus our enforcement resources in a more targeted way. Justice and our country’s well-being require it.”

The memo further outlines “mitigating factors” that would prevent the deportation of an illegal immigrant who had committed a crime. Among the factors listed are: “advanced or tender age; lengthy presence in the United States; a mental condition that may have contributed to the criminal conduct, or a physical or mental condition requiring care or treatment.”

The New York Post reported, “The guidance, which is due to take effect Nov. 29, replaces interim rules issued in February that were initially blocked by a federal judge in August as part of a lawsuit brought by Texas and Louisiana. The judge ruled that the administration did not have discretion to choose which migrants to detain, but a federal appeals court allowed the guidelines to take effect while the lawsuit proceeds.”

The February rules are suspected to be a large factor in the surge in illegal immigration seen this year as migrants knew that their likelihood of being able to remain in the United States was much greater. The February Memorandum led to record low deportations by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) while there was simultaneously record high illegal immigration.

The Washington Post reported in May, “Under new Biden administration rules curtailing immigration enforcement, ICE carried out fewer than 3,000 deportations last month, the lowest level on record. The agency’s 6,000 officers currently average one arrest every two months.”

“ICE under President Biden is an agency on probation,” the Washington Post continued. “The new administration has rejected calls from some Democrats to eliminate the agency entirely, but Biden has placed ICE deportation officers on a leash so tight that some say their work is being functionally abolished.”
