Border Patrol Knew About Racist FB Group Last Year

ABC News reports:

An internal memo from U.S. Customs and Border Protection shows that the agency’s leadership was aware, from as early as February 2018, of at least one private Facebook group that included “inappropriate and offensive posts” by its personnel.

The agency said on Monday it has launched an investigation into a Facebook group known as “I’m 10-15,” after the account was revealed in a report by ProPublica. On Friday, the agency added that it was made aware of additional social media posts also alleged to have been posted by its personnel.

A second secret group was revealed today:

A second secret Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Facebook group has been exposed for its derogatory depiction of migrants in a series of vulgar and inappropriate posts.

The group, called “Real CBP Nation”, was discovered after two individuals familiar with the page sent screenshots to journalists at CNN.

The page contained posts mocking the separation of migrant families, racist and racially divisive comments about Asian and African American people, and memes mocking congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
