Screenshots reportedly from a secret Facebook group for current and former Border Patrol agents show posts that joked about the deaths of migrants and discussed throwing burritos at Latino members of Congress visiting a detention facility. https://nbcnews.to/2NsmlIv
ProPublica says it had received images of discussions in the Facebook group and "was able to link the participants in those online conversations to apparently legitimate Facebook profiles belonging to Border Patrol agents." http://nbcnews.to/2NsmlIv
CBP says it informed the DHS inspector general of the "disturbing social media activity" and launched an investigation into the Facebook group. http://nbcnews.to/2NsmlIv
