デスク業務に割り当てられた移民を鞭打ちしたとして告発されたエージェント, DHSは言う
‘The individuals who are the subject of the investigation are on administrative duties currently,’ says DHS secretary Alejandro Mayorkas

The border officials who appeared to whip and corral Haitian migrants this week have been reassigned to administrative duties, 国土安全保障省 秘書 アレハンドロ・マヨルカス 言う.

“The individuals who are the subject of the investigation are on administrative duties currently,” Mr Mayorkas ツイート. “They are not executing their other law enforcement duties and they are not to be interacting with other migrants at this time during the pendency of the investigation.”

ショッキング photos and videos emerged earlier this week from Del Rio, テキサス, where thousands of Haitian refugees have arrived seeking asylum. In disturbing footage by Al Jazeera and Reuters, border officials on horseback appeared to use reins or whips to forcefully drive them back.

火曜日に, Mr Mayorkas condemned those tactics and said they would be investigated.

“We do not condone, we do not tolerate any mistreatment of any migrant,” Mr Mayorkas wrote. “The actions we’re taking are swift and strong, and we will take further action as the facts adduced in the investigation compel.”

副社長 カマラハリス has also denounced the violence.

「私が見たものは、馬に乗ったそれらの個人について描かれています, treating human beings the way they were, is horrible,” Ms Harris 火曜日に言った. “Human beings should never be treated that way and I am deeply troubled by it and I’ll also be talking with Secretary Mayorkas later today about it.”

One police union, その間, has defended the Border Patrol officers, arguing that they were using reins, not whips.

“For all you Twitter warriors out there: these are NOT whips. そして、いいえ, Border Patrol agents are NOT ‘whipping’ people,」 書きました the National Fraternal Order of Police. “They are REINSStay with us here, like a steering wheel is used to drive a car, the reins are used to ‘drive’ the horse.”

Tensions have been high along the US-Mexico border, ここで以上 12,000 移民, many of them Haitians, have set up a makeshift refugee camp as they flee their home country’s disintegrating political situation and seek asylum.

日曜日に, the US began flying migrants out of the camps on flights back to the Haitian capital Port-au-Prince, where the country has been reeling after a massive earthquake in August and the assassination of its president in July.

“What kills me about that is that everyone knows what we Haitians are going through,” one man told an Al Jazeera film crew. “There’s no president. Crime is high. Students can’t go to school. There’s no work. The economy is down. People can’t put up with that. Deportation is not good for us.”
