WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The White House said on Monday that footage appearing to show border patrol agents using whips against Haitian migrants coming into the United States from Mexico was unacceptable and not appropriate.

I have seen some footage. It’s not possible to give the complete context. Jen Psaki, White House spokesperson, told reporters that she couldn’t think of any context which would allow for such an appropriate use.

She said, “I doubt anyone would see that footage and think it’s acceptable or appropriate.”
