Facebook to Ban Some Criticisms of Immigration in Reactionary Ban

Facebook will ban certain speech critical of immigration in addition to banning all speech the digital giant deems to be complementary toward “white nationalism” and “white separatism.”

Vice News added to Facebook’s new policy, explaining that phrases including “‘Immigration is tearing this country apart; white separatism is the only answer’” (emphasis added) would also be banned by the platform.
