WATCH: Cuellers defends border patrol “What are they supposed to do just stand there and let everybody come in?”

Appearing on CNN, Democrat Rep. Cueller defended the border patrol amid outrage from the media as to how they were treating Haitian migrants while on horseback.

“What are they supposed to do just stand there and let everybody come in? They are suppose to be enforcing the law,” Rep. Cuellar said.

Cueller also corrected the false suggestion border patrol was using a lasso by explaining they were using the horse reins. “They don’t carry whips and they don’t carry lassos,” he explained.
