Joe Biden said he has taken “full responsibility” for the Haitian migrant crisis, while vowing to make the border patrol agents “pay” for their actions on the border. In his first public address of the situation, Biden announced he was suspending all horse patrols in Del Rio, Texas and condemned the Border Patrol for using their horses to confront the illegal Haitian migrants.

Despite claiming to take responsibility, Biden spent the majority of his speech blaming the agents who have been trying to secure the border. Biden claimed the agents were “running people over” and “strapping” the migrants, despite no available evidence to back up his claims.

“It’s outrageous. I promise you those people will pay. They will be- an investigation underway now. There will be consequences,” he stated. “…It sends the wrong message around the world. It sends the wrong message at home. It’s simply not who we are.”

Biden’s statements directly contradict eyewitness accounts of the situation. This includes the photographer who took pictures of the border agents and said neither he nor his colleagues saw any agents “whipping” anyone.
