Twitter on Sunday briefly suspended Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene's account for the second time in little more than two weeks.

The social media platform said in a statement Taylor Greene's account was locked mistakenly, due to a technical glitch.

"[An automated system] took enforcement action on the account referenced in error. This action has been reversed, and access to the account has been reinstated," a Twitter spokesperson told Mediaite.

Taylor Greene, R-Ga., took to the Twitter alternative site Gab to suggest her latest ban might have been due to a tweet in which she wished her followers a Happy Easter.

Happy Easter, everyone! He is risen!

"After tweeting, 'He is risen! Happy Easter!' I was suspended this morning for 12 hours!" Greene wrote on Gab. "Was it my Christian faith?"

Taylor Greene also suggested the suspension might have been the result of her "willingness to Fire Fauci."

"Message to Big Tech," she wrote. "I’LL NEVER STOP!!!"

Twitter previously suspended Taylor Greene’s account in January for spreading misinformation about the election.

Then on March 19, Twitter mistakenly suspended Greene again "in error."

"We use a combination of technology and human review to enforce the Twitter Rules across the service," a Twitter representative said at the time. "In this case, our automated systems took enforcement action on the account referenced in error. This action has been reversed, and access to the account has been restored."

Taylor Greene compared her March suspension to a person being wrongly convicted on Newsmax TV’s "National Report."

"My account was suspended for 12 hours and served the full 12 hours," Greene said. "So that's like being convicted and serving prison time when you never did anything wrong and serving the full sentence."

Taylor Greene, serving her first House term, won Georgia’s 14th Congressional district unopposed. She was removed by Democrats from her committee for her public statements and supposed threats – including a Facebook page posing with an AR-15 rifle and a collage of the members of the liberal “Squad.”

Rep. Jimmy Gomez, D-Calif., filed a resolution to expel Taylor Greene from the House.

"It would be very foolish for anyone in Congress to expel me when I have done absolutely nothing wrong," Greene said on "National Report."

"And if Democrats and Republicans join together to have me expelled for doing nothing wrong, for a few comments on social media, then this is a real precedent that the American people will not stand for, and my district would just reelect me and send me back, so their effort will fail."

Taylor Greene told "Greg Kelly Reports" she didn’t care politicians on both sides of the isle have shunted her.

"Here in the District of Communism, is what I call it, I get the cultural version of dirty looks all the time and I couldn’t care less because the people up here, in this military state, with our big border wall, with razor wire around the capitol complex, nobody here voted for me and put me in Congress, it’s the people back home that did that and that’s where the real America is," Taylor Greene said.

"You see, D.C. is like a big bubble. It’s a beltway. And they’re so disconnected from real people. They don’t understand that people don’t want be forced to walk around wearing these masks. A lot of these paper masks it’s like putting a napkin on your face and wrapping rubber bands around your ears."

Asian Woman Stabbed to Death, But Hate Crime Not Suspected

An Asian woman was stabbed to death over the weekend in Riverside, Calif., but police do not suspect a hate crime, CNN reported on Sunday.

The woman, 64-year-old Ke Chieh Meng, was out walking her two dogs on Saturday when she was attacked. Police said officers arrested 23-year-old Darlene Stephanie Montoya after neighbors in the area of the stabbing reported "a transient woman walking through their yards and appearing suspicious."

Riverside Police spokesperson Officer Ryan Railsback said, "when our detectives interviewed the suspect, they didn't come across anything to suggest she attacked the victim due to her race."

Police said the murder appeared to be random.

“We’re going to try to research [the suspect’s] drug-abuse history and her mental-health history,” Railsback said, adding that cops are nonetheless “not closing the door on anything,” according to the New York Post.

Less than a week ago, Montoya was arrested by Riverside police after she attacked a woman near a shopping mall and booked her into jail for assault with a deadly weapon, CNN reported.

However, she was released shortly thereafter on a "notice to appear" citation because of Riverside’s coronavirus-inspired emergency bail schedule.

Railsback said the victim in that case was a white woman, according to the Post.

Just this past week, President Joe Biden announced a number of new actions to combat the nation's rise in anti-Asian violence, Axios reported, after a recent series of shootings in which at least six Asian women were killed.

Anti-Asian hate crimes reported to police in the nation's largest cities soared almost 150% last year, according to a study by the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at California State University.

Pentagon Approves Third Military Base to House Migrant Children

The Pentagon on Friday approved the use of a California Army National Guard base to house unaccompanied migrant children traveling alone, reports The Associated Press. The housing, located at Camp Roberts in central California, is said only to be temporary. It is not known how many children will be placed there.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services said Saturday it has not finalized its decision and that the camp is “under active consideration.”

“When HHS decides to activate an Emergency Influx Site for unaccompanied migrant children we will notify state and local authorities as well as members of Congress,” the department said in a statement.

But a defense official told Fox News HHS approved the decision.

"On April 2, the Department of Defense approved a request for assistance from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) for facilities and land to temporarily house unaccompanied children at Camp Roberts, California."

"This support is being provided on a fully-reimbursable basis… DoD only provides this kind of support where it has no impact on military readiness and its ability to conduct its primary missions."

Border authorities have encountered more than 9,000 children since February, a record high since May 2019, which saw 11,000 unaccompanied children at the border. President Joe Biden during his first month in office suspended Title 42 for unaccompanied children only. The policy, which began last March under the Trump administration, allows Customs and Border Protection to expel undocumented migrants to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus in holding facilities.

According to Fox, Customs and Border Protection encountered approximately 171,000 migrants in March.

Former CBP Commissioner Mark Morgan and Heritage senior research fellow Lora Ries say the crisis is only getting worse.

"We have a crisis on the border, even though the Biden administration still refuses to acknowledge it… Today's numbers are just more evidence of this undeniable reality – and proof that President Biden's policies are driving this crisis."

Joe Biden and his wife, Jill, taking time to recognize the many Americans who are struggling this year, wished everyone a Merry Christmas.

Their comments came in a two-minute video posted to his Twitter account Friday morning.

''Jill and I wish you and your family peace, joy, and happiness this season,'' Biden said. ''But we know for so many of you in our nation, this has been a very difficult year. And we’re reminded in this season of hope our common humanity and what we’re called to do for one another.

''Many of our fellow Americans are struggling to find work, literally put food on the table, pay their rent or their mortgage. We’re reminded we’re on this Earth to care for one another, to give what we can, and to be a source of help and hope to friend and stranger alike."

His wife noted this is also a season of gratitude.

''And we’re so thankful for the frontline and essential workers who have put themselves at risk for all of us — and for the scientists and researchers who worked to deliver vaccines that are an incredible scientific breakthrough.''

The Bidens concluded their message by saying: ''So from our family to yours: Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.''
