1/ Border Patrol made a fictional video of a migrant killing a man w/ false & misleading stats on migrants and crime.

In latest @Newsy, experts tell me how the video violates a federal law safeguarding the quality of government info & further undermines public trust in @DHSgov
2/ In a letter to @DHS_Wolf, immigrant rights group ask for the permanent removal of the vid along with an immediate correction b/c it violates the Information Quality Act and "stigmatizes" Latino immigrants "without any factual support for doing so." --> tinyurl.com/y5zxyx5b
3/ A @CBP spokesperson tells me they still intend on sharing more videos from the same series to the public, adding that "releasing our multimedia products will not change based on the allegations in the [advocates'] letter."
