Border agency halts tweets from region
U.S. Customs and Border Protection has deactivated the agency’s Twitter account for the West Texas region after it retweeted posts criticizing President Biden’s border policies and liked posts that made gay slurs against U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg.
Chris Magnus, commissioner for Customs and Border Protection, posted a tweet late Saturday saying the agency “has become aware of unauthorized and inappropriate content” that was posted on the @Cbpwesttexas Twitter account.
The agency’s Office of Professional Responsibility will investigate, Magnus said.
On Saturday, the account retweeted posts by Stephen Miller that criticized Biden’s immigration policies and claimed the government was ignoring violent crime.
Miller was the architect of former president Donald Trump’s hard-line immigration policies.
