An angel mom from Arizona said Facebook has removed several of her posts that raised awareness about crimes committed by illegal immigrants, claiming that they violated the platform’s rules on “hate speech.”
Mary Ann Mendoza whose son, Sgt. Brandon Mendoza, was killed in a 2014 car crash caused by an illegal immigrant who was drunk and high on meth while speeding along the highway in the wrong direction in Mesa, Arizona. He was 32 years old at the time.
Mendoza told The Epoch Times that she received the post-removal notification from Facebook last week, with the social media platform claiming that her posts go “against our Community Standards on hate speech.”
The posts that were removed contained information that raised awareness about crimes committed by illegal immigrants. One of the posts commented on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s recent comments she made during a visit to Guatemala about the treatment of illegal immigrants.
In a second post, Mendoza quoted a Breitbart article about the impact of crimes committed by illegal immigrants.
