Agents will still be punished despite being cleared

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton has demanded that Joe Biden publicly apologise to four Border Patrol agents who were falsely accused of whipping Haitian migrants last year, and who Biden promised would “pay” for it.
As we highlighted three months ago, the agents were completely cleared of all charges, a fact now confirmed by a 500-page report from Customs and Border Protection.
“There is no evidence that BPAs involved in this incident struck, intentionally or otherwise, any migrant with their reins,” the report reads, adding “The horses involved in this incident were equipped with split reins which can be twirled by the rider to guide the horse’s movements. One BPA involved in this incident also reported twirling these split reins as a distancing tactic.”
