White House says AP report on National
Guard mobilization is false, NBC

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 2/17/2017 10:33:00 AM

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. However, a senior administration official told NBC News the report was "false." 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

This could be an intended leak. It would sure make some people nervous and get the a anarchists all fired up for naught. Strategic confusion? I hope so.

I´d say the campaign to encourage self deportation is well underway. Also the threat of jail time for illegally voting will help. Mexicans are also getting Mexican citizenship for their Dreamer children too in case they´re sent back. They´re afraid DAPA will be rescinded.

What is the problem here? They are deployed to round up ILLEGALS who have not been admitted to our country LEGALLY! If they want to come back, do it the right way. If your an Illegal and you´re deported, take your kids with you. You have the option of "tearing apart families" or not. If you CHOOSE to leave them, not our fault you made a poor choice! The President is carrying out another campaign promise. Nobody should be surprised. Root out those Sanctuary cities and churches who harbor Illegals. They will soon scatter back to Mexico if they fear being caught. As for them having any "Civil Rights" NO! NONE!

Maybe in times past but President Trump doesn´t take things off the table. He didn´t get to be a great negotiator by eliminating things he could use.

The simple solution to getting illegal aliens back across the border is to require ALL recipients of government assistance, including student loans, be required to reapply in person for photo, fingerprint, and retinal scan. Use their date of birth as time required to show up for processing (starting within 90 days). Meanwhile, remind companies again of laws that require E Verify system checks on employees of legal status to work in US and fines for ignoring those in workforce. Remove all H1-B Visas, giving Americans unemployed those jobs.

This can all be done by executive order and the responsibility given to Homeland Security. Assign an FBI agent-in-charge to each office to make sure authenticity of collected data.

"....including millions living nowhere near the Mexico border, "

Odd but typical line from the AP. AP wants us to believe that federal immigration laws only apply to 4 states bordering Mexico. So, if you make it to NYC, Chicago or anywhere else you receive a "Keep out of jail" card from Feds, allowing you to work, drive & drive drunk, attend our schools, get welfare and vote.

This AP article is worthless as information. Spicer denies action has been taken on what is still a draft memo?

Then the "draft memo" becomes a "memo" later in the text.

And the AP mixes what is included in the ? "draft" with what was in Trump´s EO already issued.

No evidence is offered that the "draft memo" is being considered. Normally a draft is reviewed rather than considered.

And is it a proposal at all? Or, instead, an outline of the National Guard as a resource.

AP assures us that people who were ´Acting Heads´ received it.

Years ago deeply involved in writing up some very important documents of great interest to our wealthiest customers I found that people were breaking into my office and my desk at night and pulling out my drafts to read.

SOOOOOO ~ I started writing up multiple versions and just leaving them out around the desk and nearby tables ~ even left copies at the office photocopier station.

It worked ~ they didn´t know what was what. Still broke in regularly.

This piece of dreck by the AP (standing for assinine pronouncements) is the perfect example of why I get my news from the internet. I can get the TRUTH from websites like this one, whereas, from the so-called major media, all I get is created sludge such as this story. This is an unverified fanciful dream story for the media. There might be some truth in it, and if there is, I am for it. More likely, it is just more liberal propaganda.

It´s from NBC (Never Believe Commies), so it has to be FAKE NEWS. Here´s an idea! If the illegals want to stay in this county determine if they have committed any serious crime. If so deport them. If not, then have them all pay a stiff fine and determine if they have job related skills that our county needs. Determine if these illegals intend to become US citizens or not. The money collected from the fines could be used to build the wall or fund ICE.

It seems as if the media is using the Mexican illegals as a cover for the suspect Muslims who counter to the Mexicans who want a better life style. too many Muslims only want our land and their Sharia to dominate our nation.
They are the ones to deport first.
The best solution for them is aid in ending the mayhem and murder by radical Islam so hey can go home to their own life styles.

Pepsi will be replacing 2-liter bottles with 1-liter bottles, which it called an example of the "products and package sizes working families are more able to afford," spokeswoman Jennifer Ryan told me.

The devil wears Thinx. The former CEO of Thinx — a company that makes lingerie (inset) for menstruating women — groped female underlings’ breasts, pranced around the office naked, and video-chatted workers from the toilet, a complaint charges. The firm’s ex-head of p.r., Chelsea Leibow, filed the sexual-harassment complaint against ex-boss Miki Agrawal with the city’s Commission on Human Rights last week, New York magazine reported. Agrawal, 38, announced to Leibow, 26, that she had an “obsession’’ with her breasts — and then “helped herself” to them — about a month after the public-relations exec was hired, according to the report.

Arkansas´ governor signed legislation Tuesday ending the state´s practice of commemorating Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee on the same holiday as slain civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr., leaving only two states remaining that honor the two men on the same day. Republican Gov. Asa Hutchinson championed the bill, which also expands what is taught in schools about civil rights and the Civil War, saying it would unify the state and improve its image. His signature comes two years after similar efforts repeatedly failed before a legislative panel, with critics saying it belittles the state´s Confederate heritage.

A group of Senate Democrats is beginning to explore trying to extract concessions from Republicans in return for allowing Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch to be confirmed, according to multiple sources familiar with the matter. The lawmakers worry that Gorsuch could be confirmed whether Democrats try to block him or not — and Democrats would be left with nothing to show for it. That would be a bitter pill after the GOP blocked Merrick Garland for nearly a year. The deal Democrats would be most likely to pursue, the sources said, would be to allow confirmation of Gorsuch in exchange for a
