Video of Border Patrol agents on horseback forcibly blocking and moving migrants attempting to cross the southern U.S. border drew resounding criticism from Democrats on Capitol Hill. They are calling on the Biden administration to end its use of a pandemic-era authority to deport migrants without giving them an opportunity to seek asylum.
