Twitter has mass suspended the accounts of several “Angel Families,” the modern term to describe people whose family members have been killed by illegal immigrants. The social media company did not provide them with an explanation for the suspension.
The accounts affected include Advocates for Victims of Illegal Alien Crime and the Angels Families organization. The suspension also affected the personal account of Mary Ann Mendoza, whose son Dominic, who was a police officer, was killed by an illegal immigrant. She is the founder of the Angel Families organization.
Mendoza told Breitbart News that Twitter did not explain the suspension.
According to Sabine Durden, whose son Dominic was murdered by an illegal immigrant in 2012, the AVIAC account had not changed its posting habits in the days leading to the suspension.
Breitbart reached out to Twitter and was told that the suspension was due to “violating our platform manipulation and spam policy.” They did not provide further information or even point out the specific posts that violated their policies.
