BREAKING: DOJ confirms Biden admin LIED about Texas being responsible for woman and two children drowning in Rio Grande

Joe Biden’s Department of Justice has confirmed that his own DHS lied about Texas being responsible for a woman and her two children drowning in the Rio Grande because they prevented Border Patrol agents from responding.

Here’s what was initially reported:

A woman and two children drowned in the Rio Grande on Friday night in Eagle Pass, Texas, after U.S. border agents were prevented from responding, federal officials said Saturday.

In a statement, a Department of Homeland Security spokesperson said U.S. Border Patrol agents were made aware of the migrants’ distress by the Mexican government but were unable to enter the area from the U.S. side after Texas National Guard troops, under the direction of Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, prevented them from doing so.

“In responding to a distress call from the Mexican government, Border Patrol agents were physically barred by Texas officials from entering the area,” the spokesperson said.

But that’s not true at all, according to a Justice Department filing with the Supreme Court. They say the illegals drowned an hour before the Border Patrol were even alerted. Which means Biden’s DHS was trying to use this to smear Texas over the land they seized in Eagle Pass.

Which means Texas wasn’t lying when they said they were told about illegals being in distress but couldn’t find anyone. That’s because Mexican authorities rescued the two in distress and recovered the bodies of the woman and her two children who drowned earlier.

Here’s the news via Bill Melugin:

The Biden administration once again pushed a false narrative at the border, now refuted by their own DOJ.

White House claim: “On Friday night, a woman and two children drowned near Eagle Pass, and Texas officials blocked U.S. Border Patrol from attempting to provide emergency assistance.”

DOJ filing: The migrants had already drowned at 8pm, and Border Patrol didn’t inform Texas until an hour later at 9pm.

This, like the horseback patrol “whipping” claims – took off as a false narrative, generating headlines that claimed Texas blocked a federal rescue effort, leading to the drownings of three migrants. The DOJ now confirms, those migrants had been deceased for an hour before Texas was even alerted about it.
