DHS Chief “Horrified” and “Troubled” by Images of Horses Being Used Against Immigrants

| September 21, 2021

The Biden administration is expressing horror over recent images that appear to show US Border Patrol agents on horseback confronting migrants along the Rio Grande.
Videos taken by Al Jazeera and Reuters appear to show law enforcement officers on horseback using aggressive tactics when confronting migrants, who are largely Haitian, to prevent them from crossing into the US.
A law enforcement officer on horseback is seen in the Al Jazeera video swirling long reins near a group of migrants. Shortly beforehand, another individual on horseback is heard yelling at the migrants, saying, “You use your women? This is why your country’s sh*t, because you use your women for this.”Although the profanity is redacted in the video report, Al Jazeera English reporter John Holman published the full quote — he attributed it to an unnamed Border Patrol agent — on his Twitter.
At one point in the Reuters video, an officer’s horse nearly charges into one of the migrants, who falls back and into the water. That video shows the officers at the water’s edge, twirling the long reins as migrants crossed the border at the US shoreline of the Rio Grande. Then, as the law enforcement officers attempt to corral the migrants, one of the officers appears to whirl the horse reins near one of the migrants.
Vice President Kamala Harris called the images “horrible” and said she supports an investigation into the matter.
  • Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas states that he will not tolerate the mistreatment of any migrant or individual.
  • He will launch a full investigation and will be conducted swiftly.
  • The investigation will unfold very quickly and will determine the facts and will take the actions appropriate based on those facts.
  • He is very troubled by what he saw.
Hmmmm.  Not justifying any aggressive action by border patrol to control the border crisis, but the DHS secretary puts them in a bad situation to begin with, limits their resources and actions, and will now apparently take action against them for the images that got out to the media.
Maybe he will “clean house” and get rid of a bunch of border patrol agents – yeah, that will help.
I wonder why Secretary Mayorkas doesn’t view his own actions as “mistreatment.”  Is it humane to have thousands upon thousands of migrants living in what amounts to a refugee camp, probably running wild with COVID?  No sanitation, no food… that’s not mistreatment, no.  What about the root causes?  Isn’t the VP all over that like flies on cow poop?
Wouldn’t she be all in that like a bus with no brakes?
Kamala finally weighed in on something happening at the border… finally!  She seems to be really, really good at complaining but falls short when it comes to fixing something.
Take away a fisherman’s boat and net, give him a broomstick and some kite string and tell him to feed the village.  Then punish him for using bait and make a public statement about this not being who we are.
The leadership is amazing to watch.
There’s also some controversy surrounding the false reporting of border patrol agents using whips.  That is denied by the agents, saying that they have reigns in their hands and do not carry nor are issued whips.

I can see the calls now – “Defund the border mounted horse patrol.”


Here’s about what the Left thinks of CBP:

My question is who rounded up these folks in Brazil or Chile or wherever they were living (they are not recent residents of Haiti, apparently) and moved them up here? You don’t just walk from Brazil to northern Mexico. One report this morning said another 20,000(!) Haitians are in Columbia ready to come to the US.

Someone, some group, is behind this, and a real government, out of respect for the nation and people they govern, would find out who is supporting the migration.



What I think is horrific is seeing the hordes of parasites, inflicted with no telling what kinds of diseases and nefarious thoughts of maliciousness, being allowed to INVADE our Country by “elected” and appointed officials of our grubermint.

If the blood of this Patriot is required to water The Tree, I will make sure that the blood of tyrants is intermingled with mine.


Soros is chuckling, going “Excellent!” right now.


There are a lot of big money organizations *cough*cough* catholic charities *cough*cough* that have been behind this stuff for years.

Just follow the money trail.

These aren’t “immigrants”, they’re barely “individuals”, instead they’re “illegal alien invaders”.

If the Politburo is shocked at the pictures of IAIs being corralled by horse reins, just wait until they see the pictures of these same IAIs floating downstream. I don’t think I need to say how they got that way, do I?


From a Border Patrol source: “Agents use their reins for a lot of reasons. Primarily it's used to steer the horse, but agents will also spin them sometimes to deter people from getting too close to the horse…We are not aware of anyone being struck with the reins.” https://t.co/yxxyoAuklh pic.twitter.com/t3o3h9dJbL— Julio Rosas (@Julio_Rosas11) September 20, 2021



Maybe they should just let the horse step on or kick the stupid (and they ain’t bright) Haitian dorks.


Don’t want that, do they?


I agree, not a single shit to be given here. If they’d stayed in their own damn country, or the ones they’ve been living in, instead of coming at joes invitation for free shit, they wouldn’t have to worry about this. And twirling the reins to keep idiots away from the horses makes perfect sense. Anyone familiar with horses knows how dangerous a spooked horse can be to those around it, and to it’s rider. This just seems like another instance of “play stupid games, win stupid prizes ” by the invaders.



Gives “Don’t tread on me” it’s original meaning back.


Née Orleans PD are some of the best mounted police that I’ve ever seen. They can definitely control a crowd with their animals.


There’s a very simple way to resolve this crisis:

Airlift a bunch of Critical Race Theory professors down to the border to explain to the Haitian refugees that America is a horrible, racist hellhole where they would be subjected to the cruel structural racism that permeates every part of American life, and that they’re much better off enjoying the rich diversity of their home country.

That should do it.


On point.

Haiti is so much better. And when they are done talking send the professors to Haiti with the mostly peaceful immigrants to stay in that utopia forever.

I will stay here and suffer through.


Yes! And make sure the pink haired feminist CReTards remind the Haitians how privileged they are to have been born in the world’s first free black republic and not some razist fascist state like USA or Kanuckistan!

Anyone who has spent any time around horses knows that getting stepped on by one, kicked or butted isn’t fun. I suspect the officers were using riding techniques to keep the people away from the horses, which includes pulling the reigns to one side and making the horse perform a 360. Once again, the DHS Secretary fails.

At one point it looked like a cutting horse in action.


My thoughts exactly. Except we’re pushing the stray back into the herd.

RGR 4-78

I got to ride turn back a couple of times.

For those that don’t know what we are talking about.



Once that horse is locked onto the right cow, the cowboy is now a passenger.


Correctamundo. I have ridden cutting horses a couple of times. the owner’s instructions to me was hold on and don’t do anything with your legs or the reins. But anyway, the officers were merely trying to control their horses in stopping the illegal invaders. They did not attempt to whip anyone. It is all media propaganda.


” It is all media propaganda.”

I’m shocked… SHOCKED I say!

newsmax mentioned that the procedure used by the mounted officers were approved by the supreme ruler in the new kremlin whom happens to be biden.


And now they’ve banned the Border Patrol from using horses.. It’s almost like they want them to fail, and that they care more about illegals than American citizens..


Yeah, Biden and the government are at fault for this.
They need to do something to help.
FEMA and the Government need to get massive truck convoys and an immediate airlift to the border areas from Florida to the California Baja Peninsula and offer anyone and everyone, provisions, liquor for those that partake, and blankets and handkerchiefs for everyone.
That should do it. 😏


He needs to send more people and resources to the border to help handle the interlopers.

I recommend seeding the Rio Grande with imported, hungry Nile crocodiles. Oh, and Mayorkas, Biden and Heels Up Harris should all be sure to look both ways before they go fuck themselves.

Add some Australian salties for diversity.


Yes, diversity will be their strength.


Hungry, hungry hippos.

RGR 4-78

One of the most dangerous animals in the world.

I wonder what hippo tastes like? A new ranching opportunity along the Rio Grande.


Well, you can thank me.

…”at least 12 others have broken free of the fences and gone as far as 155 miles away from the compound, where they demolish crops and sometimes stomp small cows. 😲

“… According to a 1962 article in The New Scientist, hippos have very little fat and a high yield of edible protein—roughly 1,200 pounds of meat from an average-sized hippo.>> But also discussed are diseases…. “…But hippos can be as deadly dead as they are alive. In 2011, 500 people in Zambia were infected with anthrax after eating tainted hippo meat. In 2004, four people in western Uganda died after eating a hippo that “died of a strange disease.”

The problem is verifying the safety of a wild hippo for consumption, no matter where it lives.
So there’s that, unless you can farm them yourself and test them.





In 2004, four people in western Uganda died after eating a hippo that “died of a strange disease.”

Well that’s just stoooopid. What idiot looks at a diseased piece of meat and thinks, “Lunch?”


Apparently, Ugandans…


We’ll, could’ve been a bullet! 🤷‍♂️


Back home in Haiti, it might’ve been– authorities there usually don’t give a sh*t.


Finally Kamala Harris weighs in on the border crisis… and it only took a few horses to do it.



Just another day in Bidenville.

Our country is wasting away.

Searching for my lost shaker of…. you know the thing.

Some people claim it’s a woman to blame, but I know, Orange Man bad.


3 ICE agents on a deportation flight of Haitians to Port-au-Prince were attacked by deportees after plane landed. The agents required hospitalization. Mostly peaceful migrants. Need to break out napalm & claymores on the border. Fookem.


Does DHS think there are paved roads everywhere, so why the horses? Can’t they just drive?

We keep hearing about all the years of service these politicians have, yet they can’t, or won’t explain why the border is still a mess after all those years of experience.

Been looking, but can anybody show me the land bridge from Haiti to Mexico?

E4 Mafia '83-'87

I propose any and all Illegal immigrants seeking asylum should reside within the confines of Washington DC. It would serve the politicians right especially all the Dems to have to step over and around all the people they lured here. When DC gets full, the Dems can take them back to their home state in their home districts.

Whips…never let the facts get in the way of any Democratic/Corporate media lie…there called reigns and its how you steer a horse.
