The official Twitter account for the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) was suspended from the platform earlier today before being reinstated.
This is what the official ICE account looked like while it was taken down:
A fake ICE page made by far-left extremists posted a couple of gloating comments that have since been removed from the platform.

“Us disappearing on Twitter is a sign we need to be abolished.#AbolishICE,” the phony account wrote.
“We’ve begun the process of abolishment,” it continued.
Illegal aliens were also happy about the apparent censorship of ICE on the platform as well:
For all the haters who tag ICE on my tweets, I have outlasted the agency on Twitter. I will outlast them in real life. https://t.co/VcoTiialMF

After ICE was reinstated on the platform, they released the following tweet blaming their suspension on a mysterious “technical glitch”:
We’re back! No hackers, no rogue employees. We had a technical glitch and we appreciate the Twitter team’s help in bringing us back online. Stay tuned here for more great news about the work that the men and women of ICE do every day to protect the homeland.

This suspension came at a time when ICE is protecting children by working with international partners to arrest over 100 child sex criminals.
“This collaborative effort by ICE’s Homeland Security Investigations and its foreign law enforcement partners has put dangerous criminals behind bars and, most importantly, has led to the rescue of innocent children,” said ICE Attaché for Brazil and Bolivia, Robert Fuentes Jr. about their sweep of 113 child predators.
“Thank you to our Brazilian partners for their unwavering efforts over the last five years to combat child exploitation through Operation Protected Childhood. And to our partners who have most recently joined our operation, we look forward to the continued fight and relentless effort to put a stop to this horrific crime,” Fuentes Jr. added.
Breaking 911 posted some of the most recent victories from ICE and their Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) division in keeping children safe from predators:

There have been too many of these sort of “glitches” done by Big Tech for it to be a coincidence. They are actively at war with rule-of-law agencies like ICE that protect the well-being of children.
