Twitter has admitted it made a mistake in censoring photos of migrants sleeping on the floor at a government detention center in Texas, according to a report.
James O’Keefe, the founder of Project Veritas, posted a video on Twitter Monday showing pictures of the crowded facility but the photos were hidden behind a filter claiming the content was “potentially sensitive.”
“BREAKING: Project Veritas Obtains Horrifying NEVER-BEFORE-SEEN Images From Within Donna, TX Immigrant Detention Center; THOUSANDS of Illegal Immigrants PACKED Into Tight Spaces And Wrapped In Space Blankets On Floor; Insider: ’50+ COVID Positive,’” the post said.
But a spokeswoman for Twitter told Breitbart News that the warning was “incorrectly applied by one of our automated tools and it has since been removed.”
The photos gave credence to claims that the surge of unaccompanied migrant children at the border has overwhelmed the Biden administration’s ability to handle the situation.
Members of the Biden White House refuse to consider it a “crisis,” describing it instead as a “challenge.”
