The Heritage Foundation, a non-partisan think tank and research institution is reportedly planning to file a lawsuit against President Joe Biden’s administration demanding the release of documents related to the investigation of mounted Border Patrol agents.
Heritage had previously filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) asking DHS to release all correspondence and records related to its investigation of the incident.
The suit, to be filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, demands the release of all documents related to the Department of Homeland Security’s investigation into the September 2021 incident in which mounted Border Patrol agents were falsely accused of dramatically whipping illegal immigrants.
The Daily Wire reports:
“Heritage is being denied information to which it is statutorily entitled and that is important to carrying out Heritage’s functions as a non-partisan research and educational institution and publisher of news,” the complaint says.
The effort is spearheaded by Heritage’s new Oversight Project, led by former DHS oversight counsel Mike Howell
“We think the American people and the Border Patrol deserve to know,” Howell said. “And so we’re stepping in and getting a judge actually involved. Filling the void.”
Heritage not only hopes that the lawsuit will uncover information demonstrating the politicized nature of the investigation into the border patrol agents — the think tank looks to show conservatives in the movement that they have the ability to win such matters in court.
“If they do go ahead and discipline these agents, these documents, the communications that we are going to get will go a long way towards telling not only the Border Patrol, but everyone else what actually happened and how the political appointees and leadership were involved in this process when they really should never have been,” Howell said.
WHY am I not allowed to comment?
he needs slapped harder than that.
Where is the money coming from to house illegal’s, feed illegal’s,transport illegal’s,clothes illegal’s,supply cell phones for illegal’s, give money to illegal’s, relocate illegal’s to the interior of our our Country where they have no relatives?Taking authorized funds for unauthorized uses is breaking federal law it’s a crime.
Great news can we Impeach the idiot.
It can’t get any worse and what would Biden do if the whole border police force decided to stand down till this nonsense was over. Sometimes extreme measures are necessary to prove a point
It’s about time! Anyone who has ever been around a horse knew those were just reins, and the stupidity and venality of this administration using that as an excuse to punish these fine men is a crime in itself.
