AP: Trump considers mobilizing 100,000 National Guard troops to round up unauthorized immigrants

A draft memo obtained by The Associated Press outlines a Trump administration proposal under consideration to mobilize as many as 100,000 National Guard troops to round up unauthorized immigrants. Millions of those who would be affected in 11 states live nowhere near the Mexico border.

Everyone from Bloomberg Nooz to HuffyPo to local papers is up and running with this…

But wait!

WASHINGTON (Reuters)
- The White House on Friday denied it was considering mobilizing as many as 100,000 National Guard troops to round up non-citizens who are in the country illegally.

but… but… it fits Teh Narrative so welllll!!!1!!!

The Associated Press, citing a draft memo it obtained, reported earlier on Friday that the Trump administration was considering utilizing the military reserve branch in 11 states to target people who are in the United States illegally.

It was not immediately clear who authored the memo AP cited.

Shortly after the AP tweeted out the news, White House press secretary senior assistant Michael Short took to Twitter with his reply, simply saying “not true.”

What’re the odds?
MSM flopping around like a fish tossed on a bank.
MSM covering like a cat on a linoleum floor.

    Next fake news… 82nd and 101st Airborne assigned to US/Mexico border with “shoot on sight ” orders for anyone crossing the boarder illegally.

    *heh* Yeah, I figured they’d be baitin’ traps left an’ right to find the leakers.
    (Thanks for “canary trap.” I couldn’t remember what it was called.)

    The other, very dark, possibility is that the Obama/Soros/Islamist/commie hangers-on are actively engaging in sabotage.

    A side benefit of this effort is that, if they can turn/plea-bargain somebody, we might, just might, be able to nail Soros for treason or sedition or somesuch and send him away for a long time.
    Also, undeniable evidence of Obama’s betrayals may surface. If nothing else, the FBI may find probable cause to seize the records he’s kept secret.

    @Claire, knowing the stupidity of the press, the source is probably “The Onion.” Or “Duffel Blog.”

    I wonder if this was a draft or contingency plan left over from the Obama administration?

    Wouldn’t surprise me if the 100,000 NG story was just a prank typed up by some bored Spec 4 in a Nat’l Guard armory someplace. And then mailed anonymously (or with false attribution) to a reporter of the type born every minute.

    Did this story have anything about GWBush’s Texas ANG service?

    THis was a leftover memo from the Obama admin. In fact they used the NG in certain states to help with the illegal children crisis….pre-DACA

    I think obama’s legacy should be, first ex-president tried and convicted of sedition. That’s an obama legacy I would fully support.

    One day the presstitutes may wake up to an interesting ploy used to track and identify leaks.

    Ensure each individual copy of a document has slightly different word / paragraph spacing as well as subtly different punctuation marks.

    Thus it is a relatively simple matter to ‘track’ stuff, discretely.

    Electronic documents can be loaded will all manner of “sub-codes” that do not appear on screen or even appear except under DEEP analysis.

    That this sort of thing is not widely practised as we type, would be very surprising.

    The presstitutes carry on about protecting their sources; they clearly have no such scruple about protecting their integrity.

    And the media wails that Donald is trying to de-legitimize them.

    Seems to me they’re doing a fine job of it on their own.

    It seems they cannot see their own reflections in their own hall of mirrors.
