Six United States Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents under investigation for allegedly whipping and charging illegal migrants are reportedly likely to face punishment.
Border Patrol officials told Fox News that agents targeted by President Joe Biden over unsubstantiated allegations of whipping and “running … over” illegal immigrants are likely to face some form of punishment.
“Exactly what those consequences will be is up for debate. Despite the angry rhetoric from the White House, senior administration officials told Fox News that the investigation should produce little more than a suspension of a few days with pay for the agents – and should be a ‘non-issue,’” Fox News reported.
The official went on to tell the outlet that the Border Patrol agents involved “did their job.”
“Yelling at people is not a crime,” the official said. He added that the National Border Patrol Council, the union responsible for representing about 18,000 Border Patrol agents, has provided lawyers for the agents involved.
