Time For Your White House Press Briefing With Special Guest The DHS Secretary Who Has More Splaining To Do

Not a great week for Alejandro Mayorkas.

Time for our White House press briefing, which we carry here live every day except when we forget, because CNN stopped.

Joining Jen Psaki will be Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas, who will assuredly face questions about his handling of the grotesque Customs and Border Protection officers who were filmed whipping Haitian asylum-seekers this weekend.

Here's what President Joe Biden had to say about it at a presser this morning:

Biden: Of course I take responsibility, I'm president. But it was horrible what you saw, to see people treated like they did, horses running them over, people being strapped, it's outrageous! I promise you, those people will pay... An investigation underway now, and there will be consequences. It's an embarrassment, but beyond an embarrassment, it's dangerous. It's wrong. It sends the wrong message around the world, it sends the wrong message at home. It's simply not who we are.

Of course, what we do is who we are.

Newsmax Host EXPOSES Democrats' SECRET PLAN To Destroy Suburbs, Burn Cheesecake Factories

Seems legit.

This week, many of us were horrified by the treatment of Haitian asylum-seekers by the Department of Homeland Security, as well as by the Biden administration's decision to use a Trump-era rule to deport many of those asylum-seekers back to Haiti instead of simply beginning the asylum process. The Biden administration and the DHS have announced their intention to rebuild our asylum process and "ensure that there are safe, orderly, and humane pathways so people do not have to take the dangerous perilous journey to make a claim of asylum that our laws that Congress passed are recognized." Some refugees have been let in and allowed to start the asylum process here.

Most of us understand that the US, as part of our obligations under the 1951 Refugees Convention, has to take in a certain number of refugees and also that, simply from a moral perspective, we should take in refugees and asylum-seekers. Because they are human beings and we care about them and want them to be okay. But Grant Stinchfield of Newsmax knows what the Democratic Party's real plan is — import all of the migrants in order to murder the suburbs and then also make all of the migrants dependent on the government so they always vote for Democrats. Obligatory "muahahahahahaha."

Whip-Happy Border Patrol Agents Now On Desk Duty, Wingnuts Parsing Definition Of What 'Whip' Is

They used the horses' reins, not whips, so problem solved.

US Border Patrol agents on horseback were photographed last weekend whipping and grabbing Haitian migrants and generally calling to mind slave patrols, leading to an outcry by the ACLU and calls for the agents to be fired, and while we're at it how about dismantling the Department of Homeland Security and replacing it with something at least 20 percent less fascist. Yesterday at her daily briefing, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki called the photos and video "horrific" and said the Border Patrol agents have been placed on desk duty while an investigation of their "brutal and inappropriate measures" goes forward. Here, have some video:

Noting that the investigation is expected to be completed by next week, Psaki said the agents

were placed on administrative leave and will not be interacting with any migrants. So as it relates to those photos and that horrific video, we're not going to stand for that kind of inhumane treatment, and obviously we want this investigation to be completed rapidly.

Chuck Schumer's Imaginary Friends Moonlighting As Cabbies Now We Think

Everybody ready for some GODDAMN SOCIALISM.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer took a ride recently with a New York cabbie and New York State Assemblymember Zohran K. Mamdani to bring attention to the cab drivers' fight for debt relief. It's all part of the fallout from the collapse of New York City's taxi medallion system, due to the rise of Uber and Lyft, and also to the pandemic, which severely depressed the demand for cabs. It's a huge debt crisis, which we'll explain further in a moment, but for starters, here's the video, courtesy of the New York Taxi Workers Alliance, the nonprofit union for city cab drivers.

Now, as The Intercept's Ryan Grim noted on Twitter, Mamdani, the state Assembly member Schumer's riding around with there, won the endorsement of the Democratic Socialists of America when he ran, so we can only assume that Chuck Schumer is now on board with Fully Automated Luxury Gay Space Communism of some sort. We wholly approve of this development.
