The photographer responsible for capturing images where Border Patrol agents on horseback were scrambling to round up illegal immigrants says mainstream media is lying about the pictures.

Paul Ratje spoke with El Paso, Texas’ KTSM about the incident, informing the public the agents never “whipped” any of the illegal aliens unlike the lies being spewed by mainstream media and Democrat politicians.

“Some of the Haitian men started running, trying to go around the horses,” Ratje explained. “I didn’t ever see them whip anybody with the thing. He was swinging it, but I didn’t see him actually whip somebody with it. That’s something that can be misconstrued when you’re looking at the picture.”

The footage caused such a stir among Democrats that the Biden administration banned agents working at the Border Patrol’s Del Rio sector from using horses going forward.

An AP photographer named Sarah Morgan who was on the scene shared her footage of the scene showing the Border Patrol agent grabbed the man by his shirt and moved him over a few yards before letting him go.

Despite the entire narrative of Haitian migrants being whipped falling apart, the agents in the video have all been punished and reassigned to desk jobs.
