President Biden used a false claim against Border Control agents during a White House briefing over their effort to control illegal Haitian migrants in Del Rio, Texas.
Addressing Border Patrol agents that used horses to address migrants illegally crossing into the U.S., Biden used extremely harsh words to attack the border law enforcement agents.
Biden said their actions were “outrageous” and “horrible to see.” The president added, “I promise you, those people will pay. There will be an investigation, underway now, and there will be consequences. There will be consequences.”
Biden on the lie that border patrol were using whips on illegal immigrants at the border:

It turns out Biden’s claim about Border Patrol agents whipping Haitians was wrong on the facts.
Paul Ratje, the photographer who took the pictures of the incident, said in an exclusive interview, “I’ve never seen them whip anyone.”
Ratje added context to his picture, saying, “He was swinging it, but it can be misconstrued when you’re looking at the picture.”
A video posted on Twitter showed the incident as well.

BIDEN throws the Border Patrol under the bus, furthers the Whipgate Hoax ("straps"), promising "consequences", and that "people will pay" subsequent to an investigation. You'd think the Border Patrol droned Afghan kids, or something. pic.twitter.com/krfxigFkkC

The crisis in Del Rio is adding momentum to the numerous policy failures by Biden which is rooted in his horrible decision making.
Most concerning, Biden is consistently using lies to try to save his failing presidency.
On Newsmax TV, he was called “Liar-In-Chief.”
