Trump Administration May Mobilize National Guard Troops To Round Up Unauthorized Immigrants - HP

This is absolutely chilling. Shit.

The roundups are about to begin.

Here's the link to the article, excerpt below: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/donald-trump-national-guard-immigrants_us_58a71356e4b037d17d271bcb?

President Donald Trump’s administration is considering mobilizing as many as 100,000 National Guard troops to round up unauthorized immigrants, according to a draft copy of an order obtained by The Associated Press on Friday. Though the AP reported that the memo was written by U.S. Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly, the White House quickly denied that the report was true. The AP reports an 11-page draft memo shows the Trump administration is considering an unprecedented militarization of immigration enforcement as far north as Portland, Oregon, and as far east as New Orleans.

Governors in the affected states would have final approval on whether troops under their control participate, according to the AP. Millions of the people who would be affected live nowhere near the U.S.-Mexico border. During the 2016 campaign, Trump talked at various times about implementing a “deportation force” to conduct raids on undocumented immigrants. In August, during a high-profile speech in Arizona, he pledged to “triple the number of [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] deportation officers” and “create a new special deportation task force focused on identifying and quickly removing the most dangerous criminal illegal immigrants in America who have evaded justice.”

4. Let's pray that is the case. I would LOVE to eat crow on this one!

Because it is so serious and so chilling that if it happens we must oppose it on moral grounds with every fiber of our beings.

5. Careful they are deliberately planting stories to discredit the media and force everyone off

Kilter. This is so crazily outrageous it will spread like wildfire and then they can sit back and say "see fake news!. Not that they wouldn't do this if they could get away with it.
