Social media used to spread hateful messages about immigrants

It appears the frustration is growing at the US-Mexico border. At least two dozen Central American migrants reportedly breached the border Monday because they're tired of waiting on the asylum process to kick in.

That has left some people on social media saying the best solution to deal with the migrants from the caravan is to shoot them. Do you think Facebook is moving fast enough to take these hateful posts down?  An investigation by the Daily Beast shows Facebook failed to detect more than 100 posts that called for the killing of immigrants, minorities, and public figures. This is despite the company announcing new technology that detects 52 percent of hate speech before anyone reports it.

On the Factor to talk about this issue is Black Lives Matter activist Ashton P. Woods and Chicano activist Tony Diaz.
