Has the Media been caught in a lie? A bold, open-faced lie?
UPDATE: The White House is denying the Associated Press report that the administration is considering the use of National Guard troops to round up people in the U.S. illegally.
According to a pool report, Press Secretary Sean Spicer said “That is 100% not true. It is false. It is irresponsible to be saying this.”
Trump administration considers mobilizing as many as 100,000 National Guard troops to round up unauthorized immigrants
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. SOURCE
Activating the National Guard to round up ILLEGALS? An excellent idea in MY opinion, IF this is true and not some *made up* BS from an ABC News station looking for a story that can be foisted off on the American public in order to garner attention.
And yet again, not a trace of citation in their story, but hey, use what they give you and make a good commentary about the shadiness of the media and the incredible stupidity of the Liberal Left. (This was written an hour before the White House denial was posted)
A comment from the original story;
Don’tBeAHypocrite • an hour ago
Wow… when the military have to police their own… never a good sign!
This sound familiar to anybody?
And I’m not talking the movie “Seige.”
To which I responded;
A movie? Seriously? Do you people, Dems and Libbers, ever compare anything to REAL life? Have you ever been to the US/Mexico border in the middle of the night? Have you ever worked inner cities and seen the dope and gangs and all that goes with it, most, if not ALL conducted by ILLEGALS in this nation? No need to answer, I already know your response.
*Siege*, the actual spelling of the word by the way, was a Hollyweird idea of a way to stir up resentment and hatred, it was a bit of Hollyweird propaganda designed to make the leadership of this nation look bad, and you Libbers bought it, hook, line and sinker.
This isn’t a movie, this is REAL life and if America doesn’t get a grip on it’s current ILLEGAL immigration problem by deporting as many ILLEGALS as possible and by securing our Southern border, soon we won’t be the USA, we’ll be Aztlan and no better off than any border town, on either side of the border.
The concept of rounding up ILLEGALS with National Guard troops makes me feel warm all over but facts are facts; until the United States border with Mexico and Canada, as well as our vast coastline is sealed, rounding up and deporting ILLEGALS is an effort in futility.
I watched, 1st hand, as USBP, Border Patrol, rounded up wetbacks and took them by bus, 2 or 3 loads at a time, back across the border to Juarez, and in most cases those wetbacks were WET again BEFORE the USBP buses had even made it back to the U.S. side of the border.
Deportation is a JOKE, as I said, an effort in futility.
EDIT TO ADD: This may be a FAKE story from the ABC affiliate. It’s getting very difficult to tell truth from fiction lately.
