(ANSA) – WASHINGTON, Sept. 20 – A few hours after Joe Biden made his first appearance at the United Nations General Assembly, US media published photos that appeared to show US Border Police officers on horseback while using a whip against rights-seeking immigrants seek refuge. On the border with Mexico, where a new humanitarian crisis erupted due to the arrival of more than 10 thousand people.
“It’s horrific to see,” White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki said. “I’ve seen some pictures, I don’t have the full context but I can’t imagine the context to make it appropriate,” he said. “I don’t think anyone who has seen these photos thinks they are acceptable or appropriate,” he added. He added that people, “for understandable reasons,” are upset at the possibility that police will use whips or similar objects against immigrants gathered near Del Rio (Texas), many of whom are from Haiti.
An embarrassing human rights issue for the Biden administration and its minister, Alejandro Mallorcas, the first Hispanic director of the United States, who is also the son of (Cuban) refugees. As for Joe Biden’s decision to return all immigrants at the border, Psaki said, “This is not the time to come.” (Dealing).
