The shrieks of terror and hurt feelings were palpable yesterday as AP reported ‘fake news’ that 100,000 National Guard would sweep across the nation rounding up illegal immigrants. How could Trump do this? He is Hitler?!! The only problem for Leftists with their hypocritical outcry is… In 2010, President Obama said the same!

Having denied the Associated Press’ report, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer came out denying any such program was being considered once the story was published.

He undercut the authenticity of the report, saying the draft was ‘‘not a White House document” and that the AP’s story was “100 percent not true.”

And as TheAntiMedia notes, at no point is there any explicit mention of what the Guard troops would do thanks to the fact that this draft did not propose federalizing them.

Each state governor orders a deployment at their discretion and under their command. What the would-be order seeks to do is expand the 287(g) program, which allows state and local agencies to assist federal immigration enforcement in detecting and apprehending unauthorized immigrants. The program was initiated under President George W. Bush and scaled back by President Barack Obama.
