I don't think they were ropes either. I think they were reins that riders on horses use to control the horses. The telephoto lenses made it look like something it wasn't.

You can whip someone with a rope.  You can whip someone with a towel!  The fact that it was not an actual whip is not the point.  Reins or rope were used as whips to coral humans in a field.

Exactly.  They were treated like cattle.  Or property.  

Hence the throwback image to life on the plantation.

WHO made that decision?  And where did all those thousands of people go?

Most were huddled under a bridge.

Or, why didn't the check point at the border disallow their entry into the US? Were they traveling without passport?

Even Syrians entering Norway from Russia had to have passports.

Nissy, sorry to barge in on your conversation with Jenifer, but I don't understand your question.  They were not arriving at a checkpoint.  They were stampeding across the Rio Grande River trying to crash their way into the US without any papers, much less a passport.  We're talking more than 100,000 migrants pushing their way illegally into the US between border checkpoints just in September alone; more than 1,00,000 in 2021.  The Border Agents are so overwhelmed they are now simply putting the migrants (we're not allowed to use the word "illegal" anymore) on buses and sending them to wherever NGO's can house, feed and educate them, all at the expense of the American taxpayer.  How do you think the citizens of Norway would feel about that.  

Here is a link to a report from the NY Post, hardly a conservative outlet:  https://nypost.com/2021/07/15/data-shows-illegal-us-border-crossings-on-pace-to-top-1m-this-month/

Well, they were certainly huddled under a bridge, all 15,000 of them BEFORE the night you're speaking of.   Here is an article from NBC News explaining how the mess was cleaned up.  https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/white-house/migrants-have-been-cleared-under-del-rio-bridge-mayorkas-says-n1280055

Thanks for making my point. Norway returns all undocumented visitors to the country for which they came into Norway. If they want to apply for asylum, they have to do paperwork and wait. Most don't get asylum because they are ineligible or lie on their paperwork. And once a visitor lies on the application, he or she is ineligible for future entry. The US should do the same thing meaning all of those who crossed into Texas illegally forfeit future rights to visit the US.

Besides I think those border cowboys know full well that cameras R at the ready all the time, by the media as well as the migrants.

The US is not a banana republic, yet.

I actually knew a federal agent in Arizona who worked the border but not for immigration. He was investigating smuggling.

I have crossed the Texas-Mexico border about fifty times. I owned a business with a branch in Harlingen and I crossed the border as often as possible for tacos and other cuisine.

I'm talking about the 6,000 Haitians who suddenly disappeared FAST with cleaning crews coming in immediately...I wonder what caused that surprise?   I doubt we'll ever know.    

When any migrant makes the decision to force his way into America he may expect to face discomfort.  He COULD have gone through our immigration system.  Choice.  We R not obligated to welcome them.  They R ILLEGALS after all.

In 2015, there was some fun and games on the Norwegian-Russian border where a border crossing had rules against pedestrians, motor vehicles and horses crossing the border but not bicycles.

There, refugees face a new twist: Russian law bans foot traffic at the border and Norway fines drivers for carrying migrants across — meaning the only way to cross is by bicycle.

Yes, bicycle.

The legal twist has prompted a brisk trade in used bicycles throughout Russia's Northwest — any size or condition accepted. Entrepreneurial Russian smugglers have even arranged package deals of minivans and bicycles.
