Border Patrol agents did not mistreat a pregnant migrant who began to give birth immediately after being caught, the agency’s inspector general said Friday, shooting down a story that then-Sen. Kamala Harris seized on during the presidential campaign. Ms. Harris, echoing a complaint filed by the woman and her husband, said the Guatemalan mother was forced to give birth standing up, “delivering her baby into her pants,” because agents wouldn’t help. Ms. Harris called it “utterly despicable” and demanded the inspector general’s probe. But investigators said they “did not substantiate” the reports of mistreatment during the Feb. 16, 2020, incident. Harris is a liar and an idiot.
The inspector general’s report doesn’t specifically address claims the woman delivered her child into her own pants, but gives a general exoneration of agents, saying they followed procedures. “In reviewing the circumstances surrounding the childbirth at the Chula Vista station, we found Border Patrol provided adequate medical assistance to the mother and her newborn and complied with applicable policies,” the inspector general said.
