DHS Censors Article Critical of ICE Chief Counsel of New York

Yesterday, I wrote an article in which I claimed that Wen-Ting Cheng, the Chief Counsel of ICE in New York, was a coward for not meeting with Danna, a severely disabled little girl who may lose her father to deportation.

To disseminate this article, I relied heavily upon Facebook.

I realized this morning that a person or persons reported the link to the article as abusive to Facebook, and likely to other sources.

Does facebook have a different standard for censorship if DHS is the reporting party? We think so.

I was suspicious given that the article attracted 33 page loads in one day from a variety of IP addresses at DHS Headquarters.

I then went back over our logs for the day to see when Facebook visited our website. My findings are alarming, as the following photo demonstrates:

Facebook accounted for 4 out of 336 views to our website yesterday. Facebook visited only 2 minutes following a visitor from DHS Headquarters.

It is fairly obvious that DHS did not like the article I posted yesterday. So DHS reported it as abusive in retaliation for my unusually public criticism of a non-public DHS employee, NY Chief Counsel, Wen-Ting Cheng.

DHS probably would not have visited yesterday but for the fact that I sent the article to Wen-Ting Cheng in an email and she subsequently forwarded it to her superiors.

Big Brother is not just watching.
