    Report: U.S. Border Chief Mark Morgan Locked Out of Twitter Account for Border Wall P

    Report: U.S. Border Chief Mark Morgan Locked Out of Twitter Account for Border Wall Post

    by LUCAS NOLAN 29 Oct 2020

    According to the Federalist, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Commissioner Mark Morgan was locked out of his Twitter account for a tweet celebrating the success of the U.S. southern border wall.

    A recent report from the Federalist states that Twitter has locked CBP Commissioner Mark Morgan out of his Twitter account for posting a tweet praising the effectiveness of the southern border wall in preventing illegal immigration.

    Screenshots shared with the Federalist by Morgan show that Morgan’s account was locked on Wednesday afternoon for violating Twitter’s “hateful conduct” policy after Morgan tweeted about the border wall.

    Acting DHS Secretary Ken Cuccinelli commented on the account lock:

    had too much TRUTH for one tweet, so I had to extend this one... pictures of a drug seizure and a double Wall coming right after this one. @jack
    will only let me put 4 pics on here...


    The Federalist claims that Twitter explained the ban to Morgan in an email, stating: “You may not promote violence against, threaten, or harass other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or serious disease.”

    Discussing the account lock, Morgan told the Federalist: “If you look at the tweet in question again, every mile helps us stop gang members, murderers, and pedophiles from entering our country. It’s just a fact.”

    “I’m sure somebody on that Twitter team has heard that everyone that illegally enters are just good people looking for a better way of life,” Morgan said. “The American people ultimately don’t get to hear the truth because someone at Twitter, based on their own ideology, pushed a button to prevent the truth from coming out.”

    Morgan has previously shared a number of posts highlighting the effectiveness of border patrol and its achievements, some examples can be seen below:






    The Federalist notes that while the CBP commissioners tweets were censored for “hateful conduct,” posts from Iran’s Ayatollah Khamenei calling for Israel to be destroyed remain on the platform:

    Serious question for @Twitter: Do these tweets from Supreme Leader of Iran @khamenei_ir violate "Twitter Rules about glorifying violence"?

    Trump's border chief slams Twitter for locking his account after border wall tweet



    •October 29, 2020








    The head of U.S. Customs and Border Protection railed against Twitter on Thursday after he said the social media platform locked his account for violating its policies on hate speech when he tweeted about the U.S.-Mexico border wall.



    At a news conference marking the 400th mile of completed wall, CBP Commissioner Mark Morgan argued that the tweet that prompted his account to be frozen was meant to praise the work of workers at his agency and the efficacy of the wall in general.



    “My tweet intended to educate the American people that borders matter, and the great things done by the men and women of CBP and DHS as a whole. My tweet was intended to emphasize that border security is national security,” he said.



    Morgan contended that “the tweet was similar to hundreds and hundreds of tweets that I’ve sent over the past couple of years.”



    “But none of you today got to see that tweet,” he added. “Americans across this great country didn’t get to see that tweet or the very critical information that was contained in that tweet because Twitter, they removed that tweet and they locked my account yesterday.”



    Screenshots of the tweet provided to the conservative site The Federalist and confirmed to POLITICO show Morgan’s tweet hailed the efficacy of the border wall, saying that “every mile helps us stop gang members, murderers, sexual predators and drugs from entering our country.”



    “It’s a fact, walls work,” the tweet read.


    A Twitter spokesperson confirmed that Morgan had been locked out of his account but said “the decision was reversed following an appeal by the account owner and further evaluation from our team.”


    In Thursday’s news conference, Morgan listed off numerous other tweets he’d sent throughout October using similar language to highlight accused and convicted criminals the agency had apprehended, noting that none of them had ever triggered Twitter’s ban on hate speech.


    He noted that the platform’s CEO was testifying on Capitol Hill on the very same day his account was frozen, facing a grilling from Republican senators about their longstanding allegations that social media giants are biased against and censor conservative speech.



    “Ironically as they're having a hearing on Capitol Hill on this very issue, Twitter employees were actively censoring another administration official,” Morgan said.



    “This should outrage every American citizen because they didn’t lock me out, they locked you out. They imposed their own ideology, their own belief system to justify keeping the truth from the American people because it didn’t fit the very obvious and transparent agenda,” he argued. “They may have locked my Twitter account but they’re not gonna lock my voice.”



    The company has come under increased scrutiny for placing warning labels on tweets coming from President Donald Trump, cautioning that the messages contained misinformation or glorified violence, but Democrats also argue that social media sites have not gone far enough to clamp down on the spread of hate speech and falsehoods on their platforms.



    Earlier this month, conservatives ripped the company for blocking users and locking accounts posting links to a disputed report in the New York Post alleging ties between Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and his son Hunter's business dealings, a move it quickly reversed and called a mistake.


    Platforms such as Twitter, Facebook and Google have drawn threats from lawmakers on both sides of the aisle to either shape up or face greater regulation, including having their prized liability protections revoked.


    Morgan highlighted tweets from Iranian Ayatollah Ali Khamenei that conservatives have complained would appear to violate Twitter’s policies against glorifying violence but which have not been slapped with warning labels like Trump’s tweets. Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey said in Wednesday’s hearing that the company viewed Khamenei’s tweets as “saber rattling” and not in violation of the site’s policies.


    The commissioner called it “ironic” and “absurd” that “for some reason the ayatollah tweets out for the full and complete destruction of Israel and that's OK, but me tweeting out about how effective the wall is and how it absolutely helps us apprehend criminals that try to illegally enter this country, somehow that is hate speech.”


    “With all due respect Twitter, your locking my account doesn’t pass the BS test,” Morgan asserted.
