Inside the Secret Border Patrol Facebook Group Where Agents Joke About Migrant Deaths, Post Sexist

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by Omaha Steve (a host of the Latest Breaking News forum).

Source: ProPublica

The three-year-old group, which has roughly 9,500 members, shared derogatory comments about Latina lawmakers who plan to visit a controversial Texas detention facility on Monday, calling them “scum buckets” and “hoes.”

Members of a secret Facebook group for current and former Border Patrol agents joked about the deaths of migrants, discussed throwing burritos at Latino members of Congress visiting a detention facility in Texas on Monday and posted a vulgar illustration depicting Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez engaged in oral sex with a detained migrant, according to screenshots of their postings.

Created in August 2016, the Facebook group is called “I’m 10-15” and boasts roughly 9,500 members from across the country. (10-15 is Border Patrol code for “aliens in custody.”) The group described itself, in an online introduction, as a forum for “funny” and “serious” discussion about work with the patrol. “Remember you are never alone in this family,” the introduction said.

6. Not to worry

They'll find some "left-leaning" group discussing raising the minimum wage or outlawing guns or something then say "Both sides do it"

Those motherfuckers are pure scum and don't deserve to draw the paycheck which we're funding.

9. Two next steps

1. Facebook needs to shut down this "private" group. Immediately. The images and quoted posts in the ProPublica article provide more than sufficient grounds for action; and
2. If Customs and Border Protection spokespeople do not respond to ProPublica's request for comment within 48 hours, the identities of these current and former agents should be made public.
