Twitter Suspends US Customs Commissioner For Tweet In Violation Of "Hateful Conduct" Policy

Social media platform Twitter suspended U. S Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Mark Morgan following a tweet in support of the wall along the Mexican border, per The Federalist.

Twitter flagged the tweet as a violation of its “hateful conduct” policy. Morgan’s tweet read: “Every mile helps us stop gang members, murderers, sexual predators, and drugs from entering our country. It’s a fact, wall’s work.”

This suspension comes on the back of Twitter suspending and reinstating the official account of the New York Post. The post had its account banned for two weeks after posting a report on Hunter Biden’s impact on his father Joe Biden’s presidential candidacy.

Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf wrote to Twitter boss Jack Dorsey on Morgan’s behalf.

“As the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and other Federal agencies continue to rely on Twitter to share important information with the US public, your censorship poses a threat to our security,” a letter from Wolf read.

Twitter told Morgan its “hateful conduct” policy means “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.”

Morgan’s account has since been restored.

“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 told The Federalist “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.”
