Facebook says it erroneously removed Brewer post

Facebook says it mistakenly removed a post in which Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer criticized a controversial policy decision by President Barack Obama’s administration to limit deportations of illegal immigrants.

Brewer says in a post Friday that Facebook “censored” the item she posted Thursday because it apparently violated Facebook’s community standards.

Brewer didn’t elaborate and her office’s spokesman declined comment.

However, but Facebook spokesman Andrew Noyes responded to a query by The Associated Press by saying Brewer’s post was removed in error and that Facebook is sorry.

Brewer reposted the item in question on Friday. It included a statement criticizing the Obama policy decision and a color drawing of Brewer in a Rosie the Riveter pose.

Brewer’s page says more than 465,000 people “like” her page.
