Is Trump really authorizing 100,000 national guardsmen to round up and deport illegal aliens?
According to memes online, he is.
Even AP allegedly tweeted it:
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer denied a report by the Associated Press that President Donald Trump was considering using the National Guard to round up undocumented immigrants.
“That is 100 percent not true. It is false,” Spicer told reporters aboard Air Force One, calling the AP’s report that Trump may call up as many as 100,000 troops “irresponsible.”
Spicer said he had no information about the origin of the report. The Associated Press cited an 11-page draft memo it said was written by Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly, and said that the White House and Kelly’s agency did not respond to requests for comment.
“The Department is not considering mobilizing the National Guard,” Gillian Christensen, Department of Homeland Security acting press secretary, said in an e-mail.
So this is WRONG and is FALSE.
