Border Patrol Union Rips White House Decision to Suspend Horse Unit

Border authorities have suspended use of horse patrol units in the Del Rio camp after controversy over videos that went viral.

Psaki made the announcement during a Press Conference.

Per Townhall, Jon Anfinsen, president of the Border Patrol’s Local 2366 in Del Rio responded to the move by saying “We are told that the horse patrol unit has been suspended from operating in Del Rio Sector only during the remainder of the crisis under the bridge. The horse patrol unit is an effective means of apprehending immigrants who illegally cross our borders every day, along with searching for those who are sick or injured and stranded in the brush.”

“Suspending them all for even a brief amount of time takes away one of the few remaining units that have been in the field making arrests and rescues on a regular basis. When the rest of our agents are indoors processing, unable to make arrests and rescues of their own, we should be using all the resources we have to patrol the border,” he added.
