Count Rep. Maxine Waters among those politicians who saw “U.S. government cowboys on horses” — also known as Border Patrol agents — whipping Haitian migrants “fleeing violence,” although as Townhall’s Julio Rosas reports, most of the Haitians arriving en masse at the border had been settled in countries like Chile and Brazil for years before making the trek north.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez hasn’t been to the international bridge in Del Rio, Texas to cry at the conditions, but she did retweet Waters.

On Wednesday, Waters braved the rain to give a press conference in which she said that what we witnessed was worse than slavery.

A guy on a horse grabbed another guy by his T-shirt. It’s right there on camera.

She does know that slaves were brought here against their will, and these Haitians are making the trip voluntarily because they want to be here, right?

Since the Civil War at least.

This is just unbelievable. We’re so glad there’s video because we wouldn’t believe that even Waters would say something so outrageous.
