Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) claimed the recent photos of border agents on horses reminded her of slave owners whipping slaves.
But it turns out, Waters is guilty of not getting all the facts.
Per a Breitbart report, “[t]he photographer who witnessed the incident where horseback-mounted Border Patrol agents attempted to control Haitian migrants crossing the Rio Grande last week said he never saw agents whipping anyone.”
The fact is dating for Waters since she commented and tweeted as if the “whipping” narrative was factual.
But the report established that “photographs led to unfounded claims from many officials including President Joe Biden that agents were whipping or ‘strapping’ the migrants with whips.”
Horse Patrol Units of the U.S. Border Patrol have a long history of carrying out migrants rescues in remote and hazardous terrains all along the southwest border. Breitbart Texas regularly reports on the rescues and apprehension of migrants and the seizure of drugs carried out by the men and women of the Border Patrol who serve on horseback.
