Biden Condemns Border Agents Who Mistreated Haitian Migrants
President Biden vowed to hold the agents accountable who chased Haitian migrants on horseback as they tried to cross the Rio Grande into Texas from Mexico on Saturday.
Reporter: “You said on the campaign trail that you were going to restore the moral standing of the U.S., that you were going to immediately end Trump’s assault on the dignity of immigrant communities.

I’m president, but it was horrible what to see — as you saw — to see people treated like they did, horses nearly running them over, people being strapped. It’s outrageous. They will be punished, I swear. They will. There is an investigation underway right now and there will be consequences. There will be consequences.
