CBP stopped updating its “@CBPWestTexas” Twitter account after an unidentified employee used it to share former Trump advisor Stephen Miller’s view that “Biden’s eradication of our border means we are no longer a Republic,” and to issue “likes” to homophobic tweets.

“The tweets do not reflect the values of this administration and our work to rebuild a humane, orderly and secure immigration system,” CBP Commissioner Chris Magnus said in a statement.
