One day after Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey admitted that the company needs 'more accountability' over its selective political bias, the social media giant suspended US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Commissioner Mark Morgan for a post touting the southern border wall for helping the country 'stop gang members, murderers, sexual predators, and drugs from entering our country."

Morgan's account was locked on Wednesday afternoon for violating Twitter's "hateful conduct" rules, according to The Federalist.

"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," wrote Twitter in an email explaining the suspension. And as the Federalist notes "the commissioner did not threaten anyone based on race, national origin, or anything else"

"If you look at the tweet in question again," Morgan told The Federalist, "every mile helps us stop gang members, murderers, and pedophiles from entering our country. It’s just a fact."

The Federalist also notes that Morgan has been allowed to freely post similar tweets touting CBP's accomplishments, writing that it's "not clear what has recently changed in Twitter’s algorithm or policing that resulted in this post’s shutdown of his account when other similar posts went unblocked."
