Facebook Shuts Down Mom Of Cop Killed By Illegal Immigrant For Speaking Out

Mary Ann Mendoza said that her posts were labeled as "hate speech" by Facebook.

Mesa, AZ – The mother of a Mesa police sergeant who was killed by a drunken, meth-fueled illegal alien in a head-on crash in 2014 has been sanctioned by Facebook for speaking out against sanctuary cities and illegal immigration.

“Angel Mom” Mary Ann Mendoza said that the social media giant removed two of her posts this week, alleging that she had violated the “Community Standards on hate speech,” Breitbart News reported.

The platform also demonetized her Angel Families page, an organization that helps provide resources to the friends and families of legal immigrants and Americans who have been killed by illegal aliens.

One of the posts noted that “thousands of innocent Americans” have been “killed every year by illegal aliens,” according to a screenshot obtained by Breitbart News.

The post also mentioned U.S. Representative Nancy Pelosi’s concerns about whether or not Guatemala “could cope with a migration deal agreed with the Trump Administration.”

In a second post, Mendoza quoted a news article about the devastating crimes illegal aliens have committed against Americans.

In addition to removing the posts, Facebook also temporarily blocked Mendoza from being able to post on her Angel Families page, she told Breitbart News.

According to Mendoza, Facebook permanently removed the “donation” button from the Angel Families page, and told her that they did so because Mendoza had “violated their community guidelines more than once,” Breitbart News reported.

The angel mom argued that pro-open borders organizations such as the George Soros-funded “United We Dream” are still allowed to gather donations through the Facebook platform, event though they frequently denounce U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

In July, Mendoza’s Twitter account was suspended after she made a series of posts regarding illegal aliens and the dangers of sanctuary city policies, Breitbart News reported at the time.

“@KamalaHarris What law can I break and have you defend me so staunchly? Provide me sanctuary from our laws?” one post read. “Political cleanup from YOUR INACTION FOR DECADES is what it’s called. You have #bloodonyourhands for every death on an American killed by an ILLEGAL ALIEN CRIMINAL you re protecting.”

In another post, Mendoza called out Columbia Law School Immigrants’ Rights Clinic Director Elora Mukherjee.

“Fighting for ILLEGAL ALIENS ONE CASE AT A TIME,” the angel mom wrote. “The demise of our country from within. Where were you when American families need representation when their loved ones are killed by ILLEGAL ALIENS?!? Pro Bono for illegals but NADA for Americans.”

Mendoza tagged Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi in another post, in which she noted that “Americans are torn apart every hour by ILLEGAL ALIEN CRIMINALS. EVERY HOUR.”

Twitter ultimately sent her a message alleging that her posts went against the platform’s “standards on hate speech,” and demanded that she delete them if she wanted to resume using her account, Mendoza told Breitbart News.

“I’m disgusted and disappointed that Twitter is trying to silence me,” she said. “I had my world ripped out from under me the day my son was killed by a repeat illegal alien criminal. I am the ‘other’ side of this crisis and the end result of open borders and the careless release of illegal aliens at our borders because of time restraints.”

The social media platform referred to six of her posts as “hateful content,” even though she has been making similar posts for the past five years, Mendoza told FOX News.

After her Twitter account was suspended, Mendoza posted shots of her tweets to her Facebook account.

“And then Facebook put me in jail also,” she noted. “It’s cowardly that they do this to conservative people who are standing up, pointing out the accountability that our Congress lacks.”

“I’ve had people tweet to me, ‘Your son deserved to die. I hope you die the same way your son did, at the hands of a drunk illegal alien,’” she railed. “I have reported them to Twitter and Twitter has done nothing about that. That’s hate.”

President Donald Trump tweeted that Mendoza “should never be silenced,” and urged Twitter to stop sanctioning her.

Mendoza fought the Twitter ban for over a month before she finally “relented and removed” the posts, she told Breitbart News.

She said she could not sue the company “because they have Anti Trust laws protecting them from stripping me of my Freedom of Speech.”

Sgt. Mendoza, 32, had just gotten off shift on May 12, 2014, and was on his way home when the fatal head-on crash occurred, according to his memorial website.

His killer, Raul Silva-Corona, traveled the wrong way on multiple freeways for approximately 30 miles before he slammed into Sgt. Mendoza, KNXV reported.

Silva-Corona was also killed in the crash.

She didn't get shut down for speaking out. She got shut down from multiple platforms for violating their rules. This isn't a freedom of speech issue. If you lie and make inflammatory statements, you suffer the consequences.

Stop crying.

I also like that Trump thought he could just yell at the Internet and make it do what he wanted it to do.

Looks like this “Angel Mom” keeps getting victimized over and over. Very sad that they also went after not just her, but the “Angel Families" page that provided help to legal immigrants and Americans. It really seems like American lives don't matter anymore.

Wait, are you telling me Facebook (or twitter, or your favorite social media platform) will shut down people whose opinions they disagree with (claiming hate speech), but permit hate speech as long as it aligns with their political leanings? I'm shocked.

People say hateful things here at this board all the time here, but I think that it is just because that is how most policemen are. I think that they think that a hateful attitude helps them do their policeman's work better. I disagree, but the hatred seems pretty deeply ingrained and is difficult to combat. Also, the ones that read my posts and decide to let go of their hate tend to just go away quietly, without acknowledging that my words have put their respective heads into a more positive place.

Shes a fighter dont give up.

Trump needs to build the wall

And do interdiction operations in northern mexico.

Send rangers, green berets, seals, force recon, airforce special tactics units into mexico and destroy every opium field. Every marijuana field, destroy infra structure of drug lords. Freeze all their banking ability outside mexico and seize funds. Bomb the drug airfields.

Nice work Facebook. It’s an important community standard you uphold. Who else is going to support the freedom to break immigration law, abuse an illegal substance, drive like a mental patient, murder a citizen in uniform - and break the hearts of all his family, friends and co-workers? Nice touch where you make the mother the real criminal at the end. Digital compassion at its finest.

She needs to let this go and stay home and grieve properly.

Mesa PD has enough problems they bring on themselves, they don't this mom to help them out.

So now a mother is removed from Face book because she is upset that her police officer son was killed by a illegal immigrant. Guess what, ILLEGAL MEANS AGAINST THE LAW.......understand? SMH. Our Immigration Laws are there for a reason and when was it acceptable to break them or any of our laws. This country is so screwed up and it's priorities are on the back burner. If you are illegal and you get caught you are deported. If you are illegal and you break the law you are arrested and jailed if found guilty. It isn't rocket science it is the LAW.......only the brain dead can't see this.

A good friend from Phoenix had his entire family wiped out by an illegal alien drunk driving who crossed the center line and hit them head on. They were enroute to the hospital to visit the ill mother of the baby who was in the car with them. Sadly the politicians can't face the realities of life....

I am going to create alot of hate on this post, but I do not understand why she was blocked and fought against for speaking out against illegal immigrants that continually show they hold no respect for americans or their laws.. but I see hate on our united states president, race hate on all ends.. but as soon as islam or illegal is used lord forbid someone speaks out against it. To hell with illegals and to hell with sanctuary cities. Close them all and let them come in the right way. If they can not let them commit their crimes in their own country.

I'm not sure who is the worst, Twitter or Facebook. It's quite obvious they are communist lovers, in that they silence the objectors. I feel very sorry for her, and wish her the very best, she has earned it.

It's what a sleazy little fascist like Mark Goebbelsberg does. I think he should take a bath with his toaster. I've never seen a billionaire that can wet so many diapers. He banned me for 30 days for posting a pic that I found on FB. He hates the truth and wants to erase it.
