he Trump administration is considering a proposal to mobilize as many as 100,000 National Guard troops to round up unauthorized immigrants, including millions living nowhere near the Mexico border, according to a draft memo obtained by The Associated Press.

The 11-page document calls for the unprecedented militarization of immigration enforcement as far north as Portland, Oregon, and as far east as New Orleans, Louisiana.

Four states that border on Mexico are included in the proposal — California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas — but it also encompasses seven states contiguous to those four — Oregon, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana

'Not true': Spicer, National Guard deny report that says illegal immigrants will be rounded up by troops

WASHINGTON —
Press Secretary Sean Spicer denied a report made by the Associated Press Friday. Spicer said the Trump administration isn't considering a proposal to mobilize as many as 100,000 National Guard troops to round up unauthorized immigrants, including millions living nowhere near the Mexico border, according to a draft memo obtained by The Associated Press.

The National Guard Bureau also said it "aware of the reports in the media regarding a proposal to activate 100,000 troops to support immigration missions," Lieutenant Colonel Christian Patterson told Hearst Television in an email statement. "However, we have received no official notification to execute any activations at this time."

A DHS official says memo was "a very early, pre decisional draft... and was never seriously considered by the Department"

the Guard has been used before, along the border, just not to this extent. I'm curious why wouldn't a new administration consider all kinds of different options? after all it doesn't mean that in the end they will do so.

The story is that it was considered. DHS - at least this one official - is saying it wasn't a serious consideration.

Here's a copy of the draft:

Of course the draft is real. Hence why the AP and others have asked the WH, DHS, and the National Guard about it. And they're saying they don't plan to use the National Guard to round up illegal immigrants.

First of all the draft memo doesn't specify 100,000 National Guard would be mobilized or that they would be rounding up aliens like the AP said (which is where this story originated) It says nothing about nationalizing the Guard.



Secondly the AP took this (pictured below) and twisted it into "Trump weighs mobilizing National Guard for immigration roundups"



This is why it seems like there is a scandal everyday and mass chaos coming from the WH... these kinds of reports are intentionally misleading cause they know most people just read headlines. The media is trying to start a war with fake news... they don't care if they inflame people into rioting as long as they make the American population ungovernable for the Trump administration.
