During a recent interview with CNN, Representative Maxine Waters (D-CA) slammed President Biden and his administration because she claims that they should have known better than allowing Border Patrol agents to be on horses while chasing down black people.
In transcript provided by Breitbart, CNN’s Jim Acosta asked Waters, “You made this very strong charge that these images looked worse than what we witnessed during slavery. What did you mean by that?”
Waters replied, “Well, first of all, the world was watching. In slavery, we didn’t have the technology that showed the kind of mistreatment that we were perpetrated on our slaves. What we saw really shocked us because what we witnessed was our own Border Patrol that we pay on horses the way we’ve never seen before, chasing Haitians who were fleeing their country and fleeing violence to be met with this kind of treatment. It is unconscionable. I meant it was bad, and it shocked me.”
Acosta then asked, “Why are you so unhappy with the Biden administration about this? Is it because you expected better?”
Waters then said, “It’s not so much of being so unhappy with the Biden administration in that I expected our administration to know better than to have horses chasing down black people.”
“I’m unhappy, and I’m not just unhappy with the cowboys who were running down Haitians and using their reins to whip them. I’m unhappy with this administration,” Rep. Maxine Waters says at a news conference on the situation at the U.S. southern border. https://t.co/tUeqoESHTP pic.twitter.com/BuWTMs8ilf
