Trump administration DENIES it's considering mobilizing up to 100,000 National Guard troops...
Daily Mail ^ | 2/17/17 | David Martosko

Posted on 02/17/2017 8:12:51 AM PST by markomalley

White House press secretary Sean Spicer forcefully denied on Friday that the Trump administration is considering a proposal to mobilize as many as 100,000 National Guard troops to round up illegal immigrants, including millions living nowhere near the Mexico border.

'That is 100 per cent not true. It is false. It is irresponsible to be saying this,' Spicer told reporters aboard the Marine One helicopter.

'There is no effort at all to round up, to utilize the National Guard to round up illegal immigrants.'

Pity. Sounded like it would’ve been a good plan.

100,000 = 2,000/state AVG. 2,000 per state to help ICE is not a bad idea.

200,000 would be a better plan.

Good way to identify the leakers by departmentalizing and isolating specific knowledge to inside information.

Too bad, I wish we would get that serious about deporting illegal aliens.

Not just those who have already been convicted of other crimes here. Why should we give illegal aliens the opportunity to harm of kill Americans before we deport them?

All illegal aliens are subject to deportation.

Even those whose deportation was illegally deferred by Obama’s illegal DACA program.

DACA is still operating as if it were law.

Daily Mail uses the term “denies”, with its pejorative connotation of defensiveness.

NBC (!) stated that the White House identified the AP report as “untrue” or “false” (I can’t remember the actual wording).

NBC was actually more honest than Daily Mail.

Wow.

Is it illegal to use the National Guard to round up the illegals?

If they are federalized under Title 10 and fall under the command of the President, then posse comitatus would apply.

If they remain under command of their respective governors, then it's perfectly OK.

(Having said that, posse comitatus is just a statute. The Republican Congress could temporarily waive it by statute...and pigs could fly)

It was Roosevelt who stealthily rounded up illegals and MARCHED THEM! all the way from the Midwest to Mexico! So as to prop his New Deal and job making.

Nowadays they just cook the unemployment books

Would Posse Comitatus apply? I am not so sure. These are Federal Immigration laws they are enforcing.

Operation Wetback.

As Eisenhower took office, illegal immigrants were now crossing at the rate of about 3 million per year ...
Eisenhower hired Gen. Joseph May Swing to head the INS and with units of the US National Guard, began what history now views as a quasi-military operation to find and seize illegal immigrants

That is funny. I thought they were talking about using the NG to bring the violence in Chicago under control...

Anyway, as we would expect, Pres. Trump will abide by Posse Comitatus, the Constitution, and the law.

It sounds like a contingency plan to me - the kind that pencil pushers in the WH write up because they need something to do. They used to leak these to the press in the Reagan administration.

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

Frankly, the leaker who provided this needs some polonium vitamins. FIND HIM! END HIM!

You can’t mobilize national guard for this on an ongoing basis. These are people with regular jobs they need to keep.

Now, using the regular military to seal the border against foreign invasion would seem a legitimate use of our military, and not violate the Posse Comitatus Act.

Actually, I have no problem at all if all of the illegals in this country ended up in Hawaii, Puerto Rico or USVI, Guam or wherever...... Those places can be their ‘sanctuaries.’

Exactly.

Admiral Nimitz used the same ploy before the Battle of Midway;

Just asking a question in a press conference and denying it makes it true in promoting a presstitutes destructive agenda.

Can we at least use those National guard troops to patrol the border? With 100,000 of them and a 2,000 mile border with Mexico, that is 50 per mile, or one every 100 feet (one every 400 feet if you allow for reasonable work days). They can call in the Border Patrol or make a “citizen’s arrest” in their role as ordinary, patriotic Americans. Shut down illegal crossings until the wall is built.

“...So the codebreakers at Station HYPO devised an ingenious experiment to confirm the identity of AF. Pearl Harbor and Midway Island were connected by an underwater cable that was invulnerable to Japanese interception. Station HYPO sent orders to Midway by cable to broadcast a radio message that the island’s desalinization plant had broken down. The radio message was broadcast without encryption to ensure that Japan could read it if it was intercepted.

The radio message was duly intercepted by Japan and reported by a message encoded in JN25 stating that AF’s desalinization plant was out of order. That message was intercepted by Station HYPO. AF was thus confirmed as Midway.”

There you go. Tell one agency or group it’s 75,000, another that it’s 100,000 - another groupp 125,000 etc. At least it would narrow the focus.

Should you stuff so much food in your mouth that you can't chew it up to swallow?

Should Trump clog up the system with the small fish before the hundreds of thousands of criminals and gang-members are deported? Then next, shouldn't he deport the millions of welfare cheats and illegal voters?

While doing this, the Feds can put the squeeze on employers hiring illegals and local governments giving them welfare benefits - not to mention stopping the Feds own IRS from giving them hundreds of millions in Earned Income Credits and other IRS payments. This will cause the massive self-deportations needed to bring down the total illegal alien population to a level easier to deal with than it is today.

And of course, they'll be that great big beautiful wall cutting off reinforcements.

First the publish a fake rumor that will upset people — voila, fake news. Then they express feigned and capitalized “surprise” when they get some administration functionary to DENY their own fake news.

Isn’t watching leftist fake news fun.

OPSEC, EEFI (essential elements of friendly information) and “need to know” should be set in stone !

I would so close down that WH press room and make em work off the same press releases given to the public every day. If they seek more let em file a FOIA request like the rest of us.

No presstitute should be allowed to dwell and hover inside the White House. Kick them to the curb yesterday. My opinion.

I could not find anything about Eisenhower using the Natl Guard in Operation Wetback. Anyone else find something?

There was an interesting fact in most of the articles. The self deportation ratio was 10:1.

They deported 50k, 500k self deported.

I think so, don't you. There's a completely false story leaked to the press, the press runs with it. Now all we need is for FBI Agents to show up at the office of whatever swamp thing it was to whom this 'confidence' was shared.

President Trump will see to it that there's never a dull moment in DC! Leakers beware!

To say it was a leak would be to admit the memo is real, or at least open up that possibility. Just deny, and leave the question in the news jerks’ minds whether the next document they are given is also fake.
