FACEBOOK has issued an apology for deleting a post by Arizona Governor Jan Brewer that criticised President Barack Obama over his administration’s new policy on prioritising deportations of illegal immigrants.

Gov Brewer’s picture and a statement that accompanied it were removed from Facebook, apparently because they “violated Facebook community standards”.

“The post was removed in error,” Andrew Noyes, Manager of Public Policy Communications at Facebook said in a statement. “We apologise for any inconvenience.”

Before the photo’s removal, it had garnered over 10,000 “likes” and comments, the governor said in a follow-up post that included a reprint of the original post.

The governor,¬†one of the President’s toughest critics on border policy, said the administration’s recent move to launch a case-by-case review of illegal immigrants slated for deportation amounts to an immigration overhaul “via executive fiat.”

According to Facebook policy, moderators remove posts when they fall under the categories of threat, bullying and harassment, hate speech, graphic violence, sex and nudity, theft, vandalism or fraud, identity and privacy, intellectual property, phishing and spam.
