Twitter suspended the account belonging to U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Mark Morgan over a tweet promoting the positive effects of the wall along the U.S. southern border.
“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,” Twitter said in an emailed statement to The Federalist on Thursday.
“@CBP & @USACEHQ continue to build new walls every day,” Morgan’s Twitter post said. “Every mile helps us stop gang members, murderers, sexual predators, and drugs from entering our country.”
Twitter did not immediately respond to a request for comment from the Washington Examiner.
Twitter has been criticized for perceived censorship of conservative content, including this week when Republican Sen. Ted Cruz criticized Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey about the company’s suppression of a bombshell New York Post story regarding Hunter Biden’s business dealings.
“Mr. Dorsey, who the hell elected you and put you in charge of what the media are allowed to report and what the American people are allowed to hear?” Cruz asked Dorsey during a Senate Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee hearing Wednesday.
