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.”

Speaking with Fox Business host Larry Kudlow about the recent Biden administration announcement that amnesty will be granted to nearly half a million immigrants married to U.S. citizens, investigative journalist and Fox News contributor says the president’s actions is a dereliction of duty.

Biden is putting illegal immigrants ahead of U.S. citizens in hopes to gain votes in the upcoming presidential election. “We should be protected by the executive branch” said Carter. “That is their only job.”

Instead, President Biden is putting everyone else’s lives ahead of Americans. Carter recently visited El Salvador and explained that when she spoke to the president was perplexed at how President Joe Biden is treating the U.S. border.

“I put 80,000 people in a mega prison here that are traffickers of drugs, gang members, MS-13, we have locked them up” the president of El Salvador told Carter. But apparently Biden wants them loose on the streets.

Biden’s behavior explains why there is a shift of support from the Black community and the Hispanic community away from Biden. “They’re changing their tune.”
