New York Attorney General Letitia James and 17 Democrat attorneys general co-signed a letter to President Joe Biden and his administration reprimanding him for the government’s treatment of Haitians at the border.
The AGs argued that the Haitians should receive more humanitarian treatment, furthering the lie that Border Patrol agents have whipped Haitians and treated them without compassion or morality.
“I have seen the devastating and disturbing photos of border patrol officers on horseback using whips to corral Haitian refugees seeking asylum, and it’s clear that they have not been shown the humanity and concern they are owed,” wrote the AGs.
James added that America has been “built by immigrants,” so “we cannot be callous and cruel towards individuals fleeing natural disaster, political instability, extreme poverty, and violence in their home country.”
She then urged the Biden administration to “end the mistreatment of Haitians at the border and demonstrate the morality and compassion that they deserve.”
The Biden administration has botched the border crisis for months now.
At this time, it looks as if the government’s policy is to release illegal immigrants into the country.
James’ theatrical letter follows on the heels of general Democrat outrage at the supposedly poor treatment of Haitians at the border.
Maxine Waters, for example, proclaimed that the treatment of Haitians was “worse than slavery.”
James and the other 17 attorneys general affirmed Waters’s opinion in their letter, and claimed to have the law on their side.
“As Attorneys General, we understand the need to respond to an evolving crisis while following the law. We urge the administration to exercise its discretion—discretion that the law expressly provides—to demonstrate compassion and fairness in the treatment of those Haitians seeking refuge in our country,” James concluded.
