FB Is Suspending Accounts For Calling Cpl. Singh's Killer An Illegal Immigrant

Facebook is taking actions against accounts for seemingly no reason other than stating a fact about a killer.

Menlo Park, CA - Blue Lives Matter has confirmed that Facebook is taking actions against Facebook accounts that call a cop-killer an illegal immigrant.

Corporal Ronil Singh was murdered within 100 miles of Facebook's headquarters, but the company appears to be concerned about anybody pointing out that his killer was in the country illegally.

Gustavo Perez Arriaga, 32, fatally shot Cpl. Singh during a predawn traffic stop on Wednesday, leading to a massive multiagency manhunt. He was captured Friday morning.

Arriaga is an illegal immigrant, has self-promoted his status as a member of the Sureno street gang, and has two prior drunk driving convictions in Madera County, Sheriff Christianson said.

"This suspect, unlike Ron – who immigrated to this country lawfully and legally to pursue his lifelong career of public safety, public service and being a police officer – this suspect is in our country illegally. He doesn't belong here. He's a criminal," Stanislaus County Sheriff Adam Christianson said during a press conference on Thursday afternoon.

A sheriff's deputy whom I personally know posted the following picture on Facebook on Friday:

After the image was up for a few hours, his account was suspended for 30 days:

In the past, I have personally been suspended by Facebook, and had a Blue Lives Matter account suspended, for posting a news article about a suspect hit by a car in a low-speed collision, while running away after beating an officer.

The suspension was allegedly because my post to the Blue Lives Matter Facebook page implied that it was humorous and not sad that the poor violent criminal got bumped by a pickup truck after beating an office. That suspect was seemingly uninjured.

We have also received other reports of people having action taken against their Facebook accounts for posting similar images.

Facebook user Dana Marie says that she didn't even post a picture of the killer when she got flagged for "hate speech." Dana posted images of Corporal Singh and his family, with the text: "This is officer Singh. He was killed by an ILLEGAL ALIEN 5 hours after he took this picture with this beautiful wife, baby and k9! This is precisely why we need to #buildthatwall! RIP hero"

"Illegal alien" is the official term used by the U.S. government since the Reagan administration to describe people who are in the country illegally.

UPDATE: The deputy appealed and Facebook said that his post didn't violate policy, but he's still suspended. Update HERE.

Do you think that Facebook should be able to suspend users for stating undisputed facts, which aren't open to interpretation as opinion? We'd like to hear from you. Please let us know in the comments.

It's crazy insane that they are violating right to free speech. And with no consistency. They don't close down the hateful organizations such as antifa or black lives matter. And this POS is illegal and needs to be put down for what he did.

This is how Big Brother works. I assumed growing up that George Orwell's 1984 meant Big Brother was the media arm of the government, but now I think Big Brother can be in a variety of things, including a privately owned, yet publicly used platform, such as Facebook.

This is ridiculous. Facebook calls this wrong to post so that means they are protecting the killer?

There is nothing "Standard" about FB's Community Standards. Their corporate Leftis bias shows in its enforcement.

Democratic lawmakers responsible for sanctuary cities are accessories to murder and all other crimes committed by illegal aliens allowed to stay in America as a result of this horrific social experiment. They should be ashamed of themselves and permanently resign from any & all political office due to having been previously informed what a bad idea it was and their obvious poor judgement and refusal to listen to reason. They’ve placed foreign nationals welfare ahead of US citizens! What kind of a person thinks like this and is unable to foresee the obvious detrimental consequences for Americans?!

Face Book run by Democrats for Democrats

Democrats have morphed into the trade union for America's malignancies.  Thugs, criminals, MS13, Porn Stars, radicals, illegals, and anything else that runs counter to our constitution,  laws, or sovereignty is a welcome vote to Democrats.

Go ahead Zuckerberg. Ban me for saying he was an illegal alien that shouldn't have ever been here. You'll save me the decision of finally dumping your platform for good. Would save me so many hours.

Why call him an immigrant? Does he have immigration papers? He is a trespasser and should be shot.

It’s stuff like this that made me delete my FB & Twitter accounts and move to Minds and Gab. They don’t do bans for anything less than criminal behavior.

I deleted my account with Facebook early in 2018 due to their unethical business practices. I find them to be more abhorrent than Facebook users.

That's because talking about someone's immigration status. is considered hate speech by FB

Second paragraph.

His race is irrelevant. His immigration status is. By being here illegally he is under the radar and has less chance of being caught for criminal activity. Also he is much greater flight risk as shown when he was captured attempting to flee back to Mexico. Illegal immigrants are proven to be far more violent than legal immigrants which one could easily conclude has something to do with the vetting process during processing. Sanctuary laws undermine that system and it has once again cost us someone dear.

Hey Facebook, is it ok to say LEGAL immigrant? After all Officer Singh came through and applied legally for citizenship. The POS that murdered him came in ILLEGALY. So what is your problem? These FB millennial censors have taken it upon themselves to censor our 1st Amend. rights.

that's because the millennials hired by Facebook are offended by everything. These are kids who got participation trophies just for showing up. They're Hillary and Bernie supporters who believe that our 1st Amend. rights should be monitored by them.

The perp who shot and killed officer Singh was an ILLEGAL. That fact cannot be changed. Then this same ILLEGAL has two other DWI’s. This same ILLEGAL belongs to a violent street gang. The wall must be built to stop ILLEGALS from coming into our country. How many more ILLEGALS will it take killing our citizens before the communist party/democrats realize we need to build the wall.

I won't share my views on Facebook or Zuckerberg, suffice to say they are not positive. However, the response of Facebook seems consistent with not only those on the far left, but even more moderate Democrats in Congress, over the past few days. Have we become so lost in tribal/identity politics that we can't see the difference between right and wrong anymore? I don't normally read the National Review, which I find a bit too conservative at times, for my viewpoint. HOWEVER, Michelle Malkin just wrote an EXCELLENT article, that I think people should seek out: "Say His Name: R.I.P. Corporal Ronil Singh" It's shameful, what our "leaders" are doing to the people right now.

Interestingly, the left have used the following argument to support Sanctuary City Policies: "The illegal aliens need to feel safe reporting crime to the police". Recently, they've been proven somewhat correct, but not in a way which forwards their case. We've been told for how long, that "illegal aliens commit less crimes than citizens". In truth, there's been research into crime by illegals against other illegal aliens, taking advantage of their fear of reporting. End result? Illegal aliens may actually be committing crimes (besides identity theft and being in the country illegally) at a higher rate than citizens, and are proven to be committing crimes EXPONENTIALLY higher than legal immigrants, who value the status they worked so hard to obtain.

California Governor-elect Gavin Newsom was absent from Cpl. Singh's funeral because he was too busy watching the Sacramento Kings play basketball. I'm so sorry, people of California.

The term Illegal Alien is used in the Constitution and is a legal term.
