Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) claimed on Wednesday that U.S. Border Patrol agents, who were defending the U.S. Southern Border from illegal aliens while on horseback, were acting in a manner that was “worse than … slavery.”

Waters expressed no sympathy for the small Texas town of Del Rio, which has been flooded with more than ten thousand illegal aliens, and which has reportedly resulted in food shortages in grocery stores. Instead, Waters portrayed migrants who illegally entered the United States as the victims of U.S. Border Patrol, who used the horses’ reins to scare off the illegal aliens.

“What we witnessed takes us back hundreds of years. What we witnessed was worse than what we witnessed in slavery,” Waters claimed, later adding, “they’re trying to take us back to slavery days, and worse than that.”
