Facebook admits to letting users share information on human smuggling
From TheNYPost By Mark Moore October 19, 2021
Facebook has admitted to allowing users “to share information about how to enter a country illegally or request information about how to be smuggled,” in a letter to the Arizona attorney general.
The admission came after Attorney General Mark Brnovich wrote to CEO Mark Zuckerberg to request information about reports that human smugglers and drug cartels are using the platform “to advertise their services” to help migrants “on their dangerous journey and unlawful entry into the United States,” the Washington Times first reported.
Shortly after, Brnovich announced his plan to seek a Justice Department investigation into the social media giant.
In his letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland, Bronvich said his office was “surprised” by Facebook’s response.
