    Facebook admits error in deleting conservative immigration comments after Mollie Tibb

    Facebook admits error in deleting conservative immigration comments after Mollie Tibbetts death

    'Sometimes we get things wrong'

    By Stephen Dinan - The Washington Times - Updated: 10:08 p.m. on Thursday, August 23, 2018

    Facebook said Thursday night that it made a mistake in removing a comment by a conservative group that posted about illegal immigration after the death of Iowa college student Mollie Tibbetts.

    The admission came hours after William Gheen, head of Americans for Legal Immigration Political Action Committee, said he’d had his post removed and been slapped with a 24-hour ban for posting what Facebook said was “hate speech.”

    Mr. Gheen was surprised by the move because his post had talked about illegal immigration but he didn’t think it crossed any lines.

    Facebook now agrees.

    “We mistakenly removed a comment by William Gheen and restored it as soon as we were able to investigate because it did not violate our community standards,” the company said in a statement to The Washington Times. “Our team processes millions of reports each week, and sometimes we get things wrong. We are sorry this happened.”

    Earlier, ALIPAC had accused Facebook of “trying to defend the illegal alien murder” in the case of Cristhian Rivera, an illegal immigrant who authorities have charged with the killing of Tibbetts. Mr. Rivera had been living illegally in the U.S. for years, holding a job under a fake I.D., according to the farm where he worked.

    Authorities say he targeted Tibbetts, killed her, then hid her body in a cornfield. After investigators identified him this week he guided them to her body.

    The killing has ignited a fierce debate over illegal immigrants and crime.

    Billie Jo Calderwood, Tibbetts‘ aunt, weighed in on Facebook this week, saying, “Evil comes in EVERY color. Our family has been blessed to be surrounded by love, friendship and support throughout this entire ordeal by friends from all different nations and races.”

    That drew the response in question from ALIPAC.

    “Please do not make this about race Billie Jo Calderwood. Many Americans are fighting to stop the thousands of murders of U.S. citizens by illegals that occur each year due to our government’s failure to enforce the existing border and immigration laws of America.”

    The group continued: “We hope you will join the other grieving Angel Families who are fighting to prevent crimes like the one that befell Mollie due to the special interests fueling illegal immigration in America. Prayers for your family at this difficult time. For most of us, it is not about race or color. It is about the laws designed to protect all Americans.”

    A Facebook user apparently flagged the message and a company employee removed it, deeming it “hate speech,” according to a message Mr. Gheen received.

    The company says it restored the posted comment after getting inquiries.

    NO AMNESTY

    Don't reward the criminal actions of millions of illegal aliens by giving them citizenship.

    At first I was excited to hear this good news from the Washington Times. But now I can't find the post on my pages. It appears they did not restore the post!

    I've sent a new email to the Washington Times asking them to inquire about the missing post.

    Mr. Dinan,


    I was able to make a post of the Breitbart article about our removed Facebook post and my 24-hour "Hate Speech" ban last eve by using a backup account we had set up to control the page in an emergency like this.

    I was so happy and thankful to see your article this morning about Facebook apologizing and restoring the post.



    The problem is they have not restored the post as they claim in your article when they say "
    and restored it as soon as we were able to investigate because it did not violate our community standards"

    I was going to circulate your article to share the good news and I did get a message from Facebook when I logged in saying they made a mistake and had addressed the situation. I have a pic of the facebook notice I can share with you.

    But the post in contention is not back on my William Gheen President of ALIPAC page as you can see here...


    https://www.facebook.com/william.gheen/



    Please consider reaching back out to Facebook to ask them why they claim they restored the post but have not.

    Thank you so much for looking into and writing about this issue.
