CBP investigating private Facebook group mocking lawmakers and immigrants

Customs and Border Protection officials said on Monday they are investigating a private Facebook group purportedly populated by current and former agents that mocked U.S. lawmakers and immigrants with obscene memes.

Recent activity within the secret group, first reported by Pro Publica on Monday morning, includes several posts aimed at Democratic lawmakers ahead of their visit Monday to El Paso and Clint, Texas to tour CBP’s detention facilities.

“Today, U.S. Customs and Border Protection was made aware of disturbing social media activity hosted on a private Facebook group that may include a number of CBP employees,” CBP’s Matthew Klein, Assistant Commissioner, Office of Professional Responsibility noted in a statement. “CBP immediately informed DHS Office of the Inspector General and initiated an investigation.”

Klein added that CBP employees are expected to adhere to the agency’s standards of conduct, “both on and off duty,” directing that its ranks “not make abusive, derisive, profane, or harassing statements or gestures, or engage in any other conduct evidencing hatred or invidious prejudice to or about one person or group on account of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, age or disability.”


Cue the whining about censorship from RWNJs 3...2....1.
