The 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.
White House spokesman Sean Spicer said the AP report was “100 percent not true” and “irresponsible.” ”There is no effort at all to utilize the National Guard to round up unauthorized immigrants,” he said.
HUFFINGTON POST IS SPINNING THE FACTS,
Illegals are not Immigrants, they are classed as Illegal Aliens If you do not know the difference, here it is in plain English:
Illegal Alien: a foreign national who is living without authorization in a country of which they are not a citizen.
A legal alien is a person who is in a country temporarily as a student or a tourist, or who has been granted permission to live in the country permanently without being a citizen.
Legal Immigrant: An immigrant is a person who leaves one country to settle in another with authorization to enter.
In the immigrant community
The Trump administration said it detained more than 680 immigrants last week in a nationwide operation. Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly said on Monday that the arrests were “routine,” however immigrant rights advocates say there has been a clear uptick in enforcement activities. They believe Trump is following through on new deportation standards that put nearly every undocumented immigrant at greater risk.
DACA recipient Daniel Ramirez Medina was arrested by immigration authorities last week. His lawyers said this could be the first time under President Donald Trump that aDACA recipient has been taken into immigration custody. ICE issued a statement this week saying officers took Ramirez into custody “based on his admitted gang affiliation and risk to public safety.” Ramirez’s attorney said his client “unequivocally denies” being in a gang and said ICE agents repeatedly pressured him while in custody to “falsely admit his affiliation.” An undocumented woman was detained by ICE shortly after she obtained a protective order shielding her from the man accused of abusing her. Legal experts are worried her arrest will dissuade other undocumented immigrants from reporting abuse.
Immigrants went on strike Thursday in support of a grassroots movement that aimed to show the country what “a day without immigrants” looks like. Restaurants and other businesses closed their doors in Chicago, Austin, San
Francisco, Detroit, New York City, Washington D.C., Charlotte and other cities, in solidarity with the immigrant community.

WEBMASTER: Reference last paragraph, what that says is; now we can hire American workers and send the illegals home.

WASHINGTON – As WND reported more than a week ago, the federal judge from Seattle who issued a halt to President Trump’s executive order temporarily barring entry to the U.S. by travelers from seven nations because of concerns over potential terror threats erred badly when he said there had been no arrest of foreign nationals from those countries since 9/11.
A new report shows that at least 72 such individuals have indeed been convicted of terrorism-related offenses.
Later, a review by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeal upheld the order by federal Judge James Robart saying there was “no evidence” any of those nations had produced a terror threat to the U.S.
The nations designated by Trump’s order are Iraq, Iran, Syria, Yemen, Sudan, Libya and Somalia – now known as the “Trump 7.” Each, indeed, has produced at least one individual convicted of terror-related charges, according to a report by a Senate committee in 2016, no longer publicly available but obtained by the Center for Immigration Studies.
In a courtroom exchange that took place Friday, Feb. 3, with Department of Justice lawyer Michelle Bennett, federal Judge James L. Robart, asked, “How many arrests have there been of foreign nationals from those seven countries since 9/11”? “I don’t know the specific details of attacks or planned attacks,” said Bennett, who is from the Department of Justice’s Civil Division.
“The answer to that is none, as best I can tell,” said the judge. (Check Chart!)
A preliminary report published by WND a day later showed Robart was clearly wrong – travelers and immigrants from the seven countries have indeed been involved in the murders of Americans and other heinous crimes.
