Press Secretary Jen Psaki won’t apologize for falsely claiming border patrol agents whipped Haitian migrants at the border in September 2021.

The Customs and Border Protection’s Office of Personal Responsibility (ORP) finished its probe into the alleged whippings. The office has not released the report.

The agents will not face any criminal charges. But if the office found they broke policies they could lose their jobs.

Fox News correspondent asked Psaki if she or Biden will apologize for their comments:

DOOCY: We’ve been told that the mounted border patrol officers the president accused of whipping migrants have been notified they will not face criminal charges. So, when is the president going to apologize to them?

PSAKI: There is a process and an investigation that’s gone to the Department of Homeland Security. I don’t have any update on that.

DOOCY: The president said that they were whipping people, which would be a criminal offense, and they’ve been told they’re not gonna be criminally charged.

PSAKI: And there was an investigation into that and I’ll let the Department of Homeland Security announce any conclusion of that investigation.

DOOCY: You accused these officers of “brutal and inappropriate measures.” Now that they’ve been told they will not be criminally charged, will you apologize to them?

PSAKI: And Peter, there was an investigation into their behavior. So, that investigation is playing out. Whenever it’s going to be announced, the Department of Homeland Security will announce that and I’m sure we’ll have a comment on it after that.
