A top border official criticized White House secretary Jen Psaki for her reaction to horrendous photos of border agents on horseback corralling Haitian migrants.
Border agents on horseback chased down frightened Haitian immigrants in Del Rio, Texas on Sunday.
The border agents have since been assigned to desk duty by Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.
About 15,000 immigrants who migrated to Texas from South America and Mexico were living in squalor under the Del Rio international bridge at the US-Mexico border.
Reportedly, the border agents were ordered to round up the migrants for deportation back to Haiti.
When asked about the shameful behavior of the border agents, Psaki said the videos were “horrible to watch,” and condemned the agents’ actions.
Psaki and other Democrats claimed the agents were “whipping” the Haitian migrants.
However, Border Patrol agent and head of the National Border Patrol Council, Brandon Judd lashed out at Psaki for “perpetuating the narrative that police are bad.”
Judd claims Psaki and the Biden administration knew the border agents were not whipping people with their reins.
He said it is protocol for agents to “twirl” their reins to keep people away from the horses.
“There are very few things that will boil my blood as bad as the White House directly coming out and condemning an action before they know what happened,” Judd told Just the News.
“Jen Psaki came out yesterday, and she condemned these actions, when in reality, it is a legitimate law enforcement action. This was meant to protect the illegal aliens.”
Judd said agents are trained for crowd control by the Homeland Security Department to “twirl the reins” so humans aren’t trampled by the horses.
“We have to keep those individuals away from the horses. If they get too close to the horses, the horses could step on them and they could break bones. They could kick them. They can get kicked in the head. It could cause death.”
