WH disputes Trump considering use of National Guard in immigration roundup
The AP reported today that an 11-page draft memo authored by Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly on January 25 weighs the possibility of using up to 100,000 Guard troops as immigration enforcement, not just along the border region but in Oregon, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana as well.
CNBC reporter Steve Kopack noted that the draft memo was authored by DHS Secretary Gen. John Kelly and included a provision that would have given governors the choice to include their National Guard troops in the initiative.
The Associated Press first reported through the APTwitter account that the Trump administration was considering asking several states to use their National Guard forces to assist in the deportations of illegal immigrants. Press secretary, Sean Spicer, was immediate in his denial, saying in an email to the Huffington Post that the report is "100% false".
The draft memo suggests that up to 100,000 National Guard troops could be mobilized in the 11 states to round up unauthorized immigrants, according to the Associated Press. Spicer denied that it is a "White House document", but wouldn't categorically deny whether this idea had been considered within the administration.
The program would include the four states along the U.S. -Mexico border-California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas-as well as seven states bordered with them. According to Pew Research estimates based on 2014 census data, these areas contain almost 50% of the country's 11.1 million undocumented immigrants.
Wester toldThe Associated Press on Friday that he also couldn't imagine National Guard troops in New Mexico taking part in such missions aimed at their families, friends and neighbors. The White House has immediately denied the reports.
The National Guard, unlike other branches of the military, reports to state and federal governments. Governors in those states would have been able to choose whether their troops would participate.
As many as 100,000 National Guard troops could be used to round up unauthorized immigrants, including in states far from the global border.
The report comes as hundreds of people were detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents across the U.S.in the past few weeks.
That's incorrect. Former President Barack Obama won 332 electoral votes in 2012 and 365 in 2008, compared to 304 for Trump (he won 306 in November, but two later defected). The AP has obtained an 11-page draft memo from the administration proposing a deportation force of as many as 100,000 national guard troops. In 2006, George W. Bush sent 6,000 National Guard troops to border states to perform similar functions.
