Facebook passed the buck of protecting personal data to the federal government in their latest press release Monday. While they announced a new tool allowing users to transfer their information, they called for more government regulation.

Earlier this year, Facebook made it possible to to transfer pictures, notes and posts. Instead of keeping them on Facebook’s “silo” of data to sell, users can transfer them to more secure apps like Google Docs, Blogger and WordPress.com. It’s a part of Facebook’s effort to make data portability more accessible.

Now, according to Facebook, “people can now more easily see what destinations and what data types are supported” because of “greater transparency around the status of each transfer.” Users also gained the “ability to simultaneously start multiple data transfers for one destination.” Filter tools also give them more options when selecting “the data they want to transfer.”

Meanwhile, Facebook blames the US government for not making clearer regulations for data protection.

“However, to ensure user data is safe both while it is being transferred and after, we’re continuing to call for government regulation to make clearer rules about who is responsible for protecting that data as it is transferred to different services,” Facebook wrote in their statement.

This is the latest of Facebook’s attempt to shuffle blame away from itself and onto the government. Recently, they hosted a conversation on the future of privacy. They described the event as: “two privacy experts discuss[ing] the future of privacy and consent and how government regulation plays a role.”

The hypocrisy is “palpable” Sara Carter told Steve Hilton on his show Sunday. “All you have to do its listen to what the Democrats are saying to know they’re hypocrites” says Carter. They have District Attorneys who allow low bails or no bails and let criminals out on the streets, “so it appears they care about playing politics; and they play these politics against the constitution.”

Carter continues that if one were to take a trip with her down to the border, anyone would see that no one is in charge and it is utter chaos.
