(WATCH) Reporter Slams Psaki, Demands Biden Apology For Lies About Southern Border Conditions (VIDEO)
After an investigation concluded that border patrol agents did not whip migrants or otherwise violate the law during a confrontation last year, Fox News reporter Peter Doocy inquired of White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki when President Joe Biden intended to apologize for saying he would “make them pay.”
Doocy said, “We’ve been told that the mounted Border Patrol officers the President accused of whipping migrants had been notified they will not face criminal charges,” and he asked Psaki, “So when is the President going to apologize to them?”
“There is a process and an investigation that’s gone through the Department of Homeland Security,” Psaki responded, completely ignoring the question. “I don’t have any update on that.”
Doocy reaffirmed his point, “The President said that they were whipping people, which would be a criminal offense and they’ve been told they’re not going to be criminally charged.”
And Psaki dodged the question once again, “And there was an investigation into that, and I’ll let the Department of Homeland Security announce any conclusion of that investigation.”
“You accused these officers of brutal and inappropriate measures now that they’ve been told they will not be criminally charged,” Doocy went on to say. “Will you apologize?”
Psaki brushed off his question once again, replying, “And Peter, there was an investigation into their behavior so that investigation is playing out. Whenever there, it’s going to be announced the Department of Homeland Security will announce that and I’m sure we’ll have a comment on it after that.”
Department of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas had previously added to the LEftist hysteria, saying the border footage was “horrifying.” He said the images “conjured up the worst elements of our nation’s ongoing battle against systemic racism.”
The photographer, Paul Ratje, also contradicted Biden’s claim that border agents were “whipping” illegal immigrants.
Ratje said, “I’ve never seen them whip anyone… He was swinging it, but it can be misconstrued when you’re looking at the picture.”
