Rep. Maxine Waters told President Biden it is "time to stop this madness" during <a href="http://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2021/09/22/house_democrats_press_conference_on_haitian_refugees_at_texas_border.html">a Wednesday press conference</a> protesting the <a href="http://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2021/09/22/april_ryan_questions_jen_psaki_about_haitian_refugees.html">recently photographed mistreatment</a> of Haitian refugees by the Border Patrol in Texas. "I'm pissed," Waters said. "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 the administration. We are following the Trump policy. He is the one who does not follow the constitution and would not allow those seeking refuge to be able to petition to get into the country." "What the hell are we doing here? What we witnessed takes us back hundreds of years." "What we witnessed was worse than what we witnessed in slavery," she said. "Cowboys... whipping black people -- Haitians -- into the water, where they're scrambling and falling down, while all they're trying to do is escape violence in their country." "We're saying to the president and to everybody else, you gotta stop this madness. I wanna know in the first place, who's paying these Cowboys to do this work? They've got to be gotten rid of. They've got to be stopped." "Let people know that they're trying to take us back to slavery days, and worse than that!"
