The 100,000 National Guard Troop Deportation Force is Fake News Reporting From the Associated Press

There was a report float­ing around earlier today from the Associ­at­ed Press breath­less­ly stating that the Presi­dent was going to call up over 100,000 nation­al guard troops to start deport­ing illegal aliens. The Associ­at­ed Press stated that it was a White House draft document that would have deployed the troops into states like Oregon and Louisiana.

An excerpt from the report:

The Trump admin­is­tra­tion consid­ered 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.

Staffers in the Depart­ment of Homeland Securi­ty said the propos­al had been discussed as recent­ly as last Friday.

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 were 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.

While many Trump fans may cheer at that notion, the report was false and anoth­er example of fake news being either given to the Associ­at­ed Press by Ex Presi­dent Obama’s holdovers in the depart­ments or complete­ly falsi­fied report­ing by the Associ­at­ed Press.

The White House has pushed back on this narra­tive and Sean Spicer declared in no uncer­tain terms that this was false on twitter short­ly after­wards with confir­ma­tion by the Depart­ment of Homeland securi­ty:

Depor­ta­tions by Immigra­tion and Customs Enforce­ment has been report­ed by the Associ­at­ed Press and others to be on an upswing that is being seen across the United States. People in cities from Los Angeles to New York are report­ing that they are seeing an increase in raids by agents working for the immigra­tion agency.

There has been sever­al instances where ICE enforce­ment that led to capture, deten­tion, and depor­ta­tion of illegal alien crimi­nals has brought on high profile inter­est by monied inter­ests from billion­aires like George Soros to fund protests by Mexican and other groups in order to attempt to sway public opinion.

In sever­al of these protests, the protes­tors have attacked govern­ment proper­ty and prevent­ed aid vehicles from doing their duties, endan­ger­ing the lives of many people.

There was an estimat­ed 700 illegal aliens deport­ed during the first week of Febru­ary.
