Project Veritas exclusive photos face censorship
The exclusive photos from Project Veritas, which revealed thousands of immigrants cramped together on the quarters at a Texas detention center, were censored by tech giant Twitter.
Initially, the images were hidden by a filter marked “potentially sensitive.”
But Twitter later reversed the censorship, calling it an error.
James O’Keefe, the founder of Project Veritas, posted a video compilation of the photos to Twitter on Monday morning.

But the video was hidden by Twitter’s filter claiming the content was “potentially sensitive,” which required users to click through the warning message in order to see it.
The “potentially sensitive content” warning was “incorrectly applied by one of our automated tools, and it has since been removed,” a Twitter spokeswoman told Breitbart News.
The Project Veritas gave a fresh unfiltered look at Biden’s border crisis, which the media has attempted to downplay.
The Democrats have been massively critical of President Trump’s imposition of strict immigration controls.
Far-left Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tried to smear Trump for the practice of keeping “kids in cages,” despite it widely used under former President Obama.
Democratic Rep. Henry Cuellar of Texas said the facility provided “terrible conditions for the children.”
He released images from inside the facility to the website.
According to Axios, about 10,000 migrants were being held in CBP custody as of Saturday.

Biden had previously banned the media from taking pictures inside the facilities where thousands of unaccompanied children are held.
Trump blasted Joe Biden’s crisis at the border, saying his strategy “turned national triumph into a national disaster.”
Trump said in a March 21 statement:
“We proudly handed the Biden Administration the most secure border in history. All they had to do was keep this smooth-running system on autopilot.”
“Instead, in the span of a just few weeks, the Biden Administration has turned a national triumph into a national disaster. They are in way over their heads and taking on water fast.”
