Sunny Hostin Slams Biden Over Handling of Haitian Migrant Crisis in Texas [WATCH]

White House Responds to Disturbing Images of Border Patrol Agent Using Whip on Haitian Migrants [VIDEO] Sunny Hostin (Getty)

On a recent episode of “The View,” Sunny Hostin slammed U.S policy amid the Haiti migrant crisis and the government’s brutal history with the island nation. 

We reported earlier…  more than 10,000 Haitian migrants have crossed the southern border into Texas, where they are camping out under a bridge that connects Texas and Mexico. Per the New York Post, several government officials have referred to the situation in Del Rio, Texas, as “unprecedented,” the Washington Post writes. The migrants arrive as the president attempts to usher in tens of thousands of Afghan evacuees amid an alleged COVID pandemic.

Per SandraRose.com: “Over 15,000 Haitians made the perilous journey from South America and Mexico after messages on What’s app told them U.S. Pres. Joe Biden would treat them kindly and give them jobs.”

Hostin insisted that “U.S. policy towards Haiti has always been corrupt,” and she called out President Joe Biden for ignoring the crisis.

“This is against international law,” she said. “I’m so disappointed — so disappointed — in the Biden administration today.”

Watch the moment below.

Guest co-host Carly Fiorina, a former Republican presidential candidate, shared Sunny’s criticism of the president.

“My question to the Biden administration is: why aren’t you talking about Haiti? Why aren’t you doing anything to help Haiti?” said Fiorina. “The administration should’ve been, I think, more prepared, and I wish they’d talk about it.”

“The reason we’re not seeing more help — and I’m going to be frank about it — is because they’re Haitian. That is the history,” replied Hostin. “It really began with the raping and pilfering of France by Haiti, and the punishment of Haiti for becoming the first Black free nation in our hemisphere.”

Hostin noted that the hostile attitude towards Haiti “doesn’t have to be that way.”

“We know that the United States can do it. There is a way to do it, there just is no will to do it,” she said. “The White House has promised to bring 95,000 Afghans here. And I’m not saying they shouldn’t be brought here, because they should be. That is the promise of this country. But if you can bring 95,000 Afghans here, then why are you sending 86 Haitians back on an airplane to a country that has been devastated?!”

Meanwhile, over at “The Real,” Garcelle Beauvais got emotional as she spoke about how the Haitian migrants are being treated — watch the clip below.

Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas announces probe into 'troubling pictures' of horse-back Border Patrol agents apparently using whips on Haitian migrants

White House press secretary Jen Psaki responded Monday to the disturbing images that show a U.S. Border Patrol agent on horseback using a horse rein as a whip on Haitian migrants.

“I have seen some of the footage. I don’t have the full context. I can’t imagine what context would make that appropriate, but I don’t have additional details,” Psaki said, per NBC News. “I don’t think anyone seeing that footage would think it’s acceptable or appropriate.” 

We reproted earlier… under the Joe Biden administration, more than 10,000 Haitian migrants have crossed the southern border into Texas, where they are camping out under a bridge that connects Texas and Mexico.

Per the New York Post, several government officials have referred to the situation in Del Rio, Texas, as “unprecedented,” the Washington Post writes. The migrants arrive as the president attempts to usher in tens of thousands of Afghan evacuees amid an alleged COVID pandemic. According to reports, none of these people will be “mandated” to take the experimental COVID vaccine jab.

“This is a man-made crisis,” Sen. Ted Cruz said. “Eight days ago, on Sept. 8, under that same bridge, there were between 700 and 1,000 people. That was what was coming a day — about 1,000, sometimes 1,100 — but it would range between 700 and 1,100.

“Then, eight days ago on Sept. 8, the Biden administration made a political decision: They announced that they were no longer going to fly deportation flights back to Haiti,” Cruz added. “Eighty-five percent of the people under there are from Haiti. They’re fleeing from Haiti … There were about 900 Haitians who were getting ready to board the flights when the political operatives in Washington canceled the flights.

Cruz described the scene under a bridge as “the most horrific thing I’ve ever seen.”

Over the weekend, U.S. border agents started sending migrants back to Haiti, while those who traveled into Mexico were prohibited from reentering the United States. 

“We are constantly assessing circumstances on the ground” in Haiti, Psaki said, per Politco. “Obviously our objective here is not just to work to address the circumstances — which are very difficult — in Del Rio, but also to continue to work with the officials in Haiti to improve the conditions [and] to provide assistance. We’re doing all these pieces at the same time.” 

U.S. Border Patrol Chief Raul Ortiz claims food, water, and other necessities are being provided to the migrants waiting to be processed.

CBP Office of Professional Responsibility is launching a probe into Border Patrol agents using what appears to be a whip or lasso while trying to stop Haitian migrants from entering an encampment on the banks of the Rio Grande in Del Rio, Texas

Customs and Border Protection has launched a formal probe into agents on horseback using what appeared to be whips as they attempted to stop mostly Haitian migrants from stepping onto U.S. soil.
'I was horrified by what I saw,' Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas told CNN on Tuesday morning.
'I'm going to let the investigation run its course,' he added. 'But the pictures that I observed troubled me profoundly. That defies all of the values that we seek to instill in our people.'

A DHS spokesperson said the CBP Office of Professional Responsibility will 'define the appropriate disciplinary actions to be taken' against those found to have used whips when preventing asylum-seekers from entering the U.S. and rounding up others for deportation.
The probe comes after widespread condemnation of the 'horrific' and disturbing scenes emerged of the agents on horseback chasing after and rounding up migrants who were on foot. One in particular image garnered the most pushback when an agent unfurled a cord resembling a lariat and swung it near a migrant's face.
Mayorkas directed the CBP office to have personnel on site 'full-time to ensure that the responsibilities of DHS personnel are executed consistent with applicable policies and training and the department's values.'
Images of Border Patrol agents on horseback began emerging on Sunday as the Department of Homeland Security ramped up deportation by restarting removal flights of Haitian migrants back to their homeland after these flights were paused by President Joe Biden in February.

Three planes full of Haitian migrants departed San Antonio on Sunday and landed in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, which led to thousands making the trip back across the Rio Grande River on Monday from Del Rio, Texas.

In the last few weeks, about 15,000 mostly Haitian migrants set up camp near and under the Del Rio International Bridge on the U.S. side of the border with Mexico. They were using a dam of knee- and thigh-high water to trek back and forth across the border.

On Sunday, however, agents and officers on horseback started preventing migrants coming back to the camp from stepping foot back on U.S. soil. They were also rounding up the illegal immigrants to be put on flights back to their home country.

DHS also dispatched additional personnel to oversee future border patrol operations near the makeshift encampment after already sending 400 border agents and officers to the area to help quell the flow of migration into Del Rio. 

The new goal from the agency is to get around seven removal flights out of the U.S. back to migrants' homelands each day.

When asked Tuesday if the new scenes from the border amounts to a crisis, Mayorkas wouldn't go that far, instead calling it a 'heartbreaking situation' and a 'tremendous challenge.'

'I, by no means, diminish the humane issue that it presents, but I want to be clear that we do have a plan to address it, respecting the needs of the individuals and we are executing on that plan,' he said on CNN.

Mayorkas added that 4,000 or more migrants have already been moved from the bridge camp and previewed a 'dramatic change' in the situation 'in the next 48 to 96 hours.'

The announcement of a formal investigation came after outrage ensued.

Mayorkas' comments echoed White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki's when she called the images 'horrific'.

'I don't think anyone seeing that footage would think it's acceptable or appropriate,' Psaki said at her press briefing on Monday.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called the reports 'deeply troubling', adding that Congress will continue to 'closely monitor developments.'

'All migrants seeking asylum must be treated in accordance with the law and with basic decency,' the California Democrat wrote in a Monday evening statement.

Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer called the images 'inhumane' and called on the Biden administration to 'stop Title 42 deportations'

Progressive squad members Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar slammed the use of whips, calling it 'human rights abuses' and claiming the U.S. has made immigration a crime

'Any acts of aggression or violence cannot be tolerated and must be investigated. The situation facing Haitian migrants at the border is heartbreaking, and Congress will continue to closely monitor developments.'

Mayorkas issued a stern warning for Haitian nationals trying to enter the US on Monday after he became the first Biden administration official to visit the border in Del Rio.

'If you come to the United States illegally, you will be returned. Your journey will not succeed, and you will be endangering your life and your family's life,' he said.

The secretary said he'd brought in about 600 Homeland Security employees, including from the National Guard, to Del Rio to help with what he described as a 'challenging and heartbreaking situation.'

He said that he has asked the Defense Department for help in what may be one of the swiftest, large-scale expulsions of migrants and refugees from the U.S. in decades.

White House slams 'horrific' footage of border patrol agent on horseback WHIPPING Haitian migrants as they cross Rio Grande carrying food for their families 

The White House is reacting to disturbing images that surfaced on Sunday of Border Patrol agents appearing to whip Haitian migrants desperately trying to cross the Rio Grande river into the United States. 

'I don't know what the circumstances would be, it's obviously horrific,' Press Secretary Jen Psaki said of relevant footage from the border on Monday.

Psaki was asked about the images at her daily White House briefing.

'I've seen some of the footage, I don't have the full context, I can't imagine what context would make that appropriate but I don't have additional details,' she said. 

'I don't think anyone seeing that footage would think it was acceptable or appropriate.'

She added that it was 'horrible to watch.'

A video obtained Sunday night shows Border Patrol officers on horseback, waiting on the US side of the Rio Grande as migrants - some of them families with young children - wade through chest-deep waters trying to cross. 

Officers can be seen charging their horses toward migrants carrying food and supplies. Some of them are swinging what appears to be lariats.

Many of those migrants were reportedly already camped out in a makeshift tent city under a bridge in Del Rio, Texas. They had crossed back to Mexico to purchase water, food and diapers in Ciudad Acuña.

Psaki was asked on Monday if there would be consequences against the officers involved. 

She didn't say whether they'd lose their jobs but suggested 'they should never be able to do it again.'

The Biden administration has been grappling with an influx of migrants since the Democrat took office in January. 

Migrants began flowing back into the Mexican side of the southern border on Monday from Del Rio, Texas as the Department of Homeland Security plans to ramp up deportation flights to seven per day.

Video emerged today of scores of mostly Haitian migrants making the trek back across the Rio Grande River to Mexico from the US after three flights full of migrants from the US landed in Port-au-Prince, Haiti on Sunday.

Up to 15,000 migrants set up camp under and around the Del Rio International Bridge, using a dam area to cross between the Mexico and US side of the border. 

The massive encampment of migrants has brought up several issues, including health concerns in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic as DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas revealed they are not vaccinating migrants. 

Mayorkas said Sunday that he will visit the southern border, as President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, who was put in charge of the border crisis, have remained silent on the recent developments of mass migration among Haitians.

'I will be traveling to the border myself,' Mayorkas told CNN, adding he speaks regularly with the White House and President Joe Biden about the issue.

The Haitian migration crisis is exacerbated by those who left Haiti after the 2010 earthquake to settle in South and Central America who are now desperate to leave there due to the coronavirus pandemic and economic collapse. 

At that time many flew to Ecuador where there's no visa requirements – then proliferated to Brazil and Chile.

They are now leaving there and making their way up to Mexico anyway they can.

Images from Del Rio, Texas began emerging over the weekend where thousands of mostly Haitian migrants used a dam to cross between Mexico and the US On Sunday, three removal flights of migrants arrived back in Port-au-Prince, Haiti.

The developing crisis forced the Biden administration to close six crossing points along the border and send in at least 400 troops to help stop the flow and round up migrants for deportation.

Haitian migrants set up a massive makeshift camp under the Del Rio International Bridge in just the last weeks, with the number swelling from around 400 to 14,534 in just one week, according to Del Rio Mayor Bruno Lozano.

DHS revealed over the weekend that it would ramp up and accelerate its removal efforts of migrants as Biden continues to face widespread criticism for his handling of the humanitarian and national security crisis at the southern border.

Biden and Harris have not visited the US side of the Rio Grande Valley – where the majority of the migration crisis has taken place.

Neither the president or vice president have addressed the latest developments or the new DHS strategy to deport these migrants.

On Monday Psaki was asked about a double standard in letting Afghan refugees resettle in the US but forcefully turning away Haitian refugees at a time when the country is dealing with the aftermath of an earthquake and a presidential assassination. 

'Our immigration policy is not about one country or discriminating against one country over another. We want to end that and we want to put an end to what we saw over the last four years,' she said, referring to the Trump administration.

Psaki added that Haitians are encouraged to apply for temporary protected status to remain in the US.

She also said the federal government was working with Haiti's government to help the country recover and accommodate the Haitians being sent back.

'We have also been working to provide a range of assistance, working closely with officials from the government, as individuals are going back to Haiti to provide a range of financial assistance, to provide technical assistance,' Psaki said. 'That's on-going.'

Tyrone i agree, any virus is treatable, big difference from,diseases and bacteria

Comment by Tyrone on September 25, 2021 at 1:32pm

Jesse with that being said......it would appear this whole Covid thing is nothing but a hoax to get people vaccinated.  That's just my opinion.  Folks, don't get me wrong, I'm not saying Covid isn't real, I'm saying it's treatable, and there's no need for any vaccine.

Comment by Jessy on September 25, 2021 at 11:02am

The democrats had always wanted open borders, just let everybody in, but left its own citizens stranded in Afghanistan!  First this country let all the Afghans in then let all the Haitians in, but is doing absolutely nothing to take care of the homelessness on LA's skid row when a lot of the homeless there are veterans who fought for this country!   

All the refugees coming into the country don't seem to require negative Covid tests in order to enter the country, only U.S citizens have to take negative Covid tests in order to enter their own country!  The U.S. need to take care of their own citizens first!   At least Trump puts America first!  The democrats will not get my vote next election because they care more about foreigners that their own citizens! 

The democrats are letting so many unvaccinated refugees into the country without having to take a Covid test, how is that supposed to stop the spread of the virus?   Biden is letting the virus into the country and then wants to force all of us to get vaccinated!  This is all done by design!

Its a few negros who start to speak up, but mostly women as always, Patrice Lawrence was one of the first to call out Biden as a racist, the sellout niggers like steve Harvey and Al Sharpton won't say nothing, they are getting paid to sell out the community and they must be loyal to their masters, the uneducated slaves who votes for Biden must follow their leaders and they also must be loyal to their master for government hand outs, like I always say nighers are cursed to black people, leard the difference insteas of crying about what you answer to from white people, rhe Jewish would never allow that, but you can sit and make excuses for racist white people who clearly showing you they don't care about any one with your skin color, if you niggers stood for something, the same way you come on here being mad about the word n*****, should be the same way you are mad to watch someone the same complexion being violated by the same white people you support, the sad part the same niggers will support those democrats next election with the excuses that they don't want to do for black people, the question is what have the republicans do to you in term of voting, you do not vote republicans, why are you complaining to them, shouldn't your complaints go to those you support, the democrats should be your concern, damn retarded niggers

They let everybody else into this country, but as soon as blacks try to come, they whip them and send them back home. Man !! God Bless America. The Biden Administration is a joke. They do not want us blacks here.

Comment by Robert on September 22, 2021 at 8:16am
With Trump and his administration you knew what you were getting. Slow dementia Biden shakes your hand and stabs you with his other hand.
Comment by Tyrone on September 21, 2021 at 8:31pm

It just baffles my mind when I see on the news that thousands of Afghani people were brought into the United States after Biden gave it up.  There was never any mention of these people getting tested for the incredible Covid, neither was there any mention of forcing them to get vaccinated; (but everyone else here either must be vaccinated or loose their jobs).  These people will be given housing, money and will truly enjoy the American dream which has become a damn nightmare to the blacks here.  Now they show their true colors the way the treat the Haitians.  Man the Haitians just can't catch a break.

Comment by mr1stroke on September 21, 2021 at 6:19pm

Your Mr Biden is the damn reason, he is the one who called the deportation the first day, he is the one who deployed 600 home land security agents at the border pver night, you negros should hold him accountable 

Comment by Gee on September 21, 2021 at 4:04pm

This Country should be ashamed of themselves the way they treated these Haitians, no other group of people have been treated in such an inhumane manner upon seeking help from this country, everyone of those clowns who allowed this to happen should be fired and never able to do this to any human ever again. Mr Biden has to make sure they are held accountable.
