Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer cited an Associated Press report that claimed the President Trump’s administration was considering using 100,000 National Guard members to round up illegal immigrants.
The Associated Press reported on an 11-page draft memo that they had obtained, which supposedly outlines “a Trump administration proposal under consideration to mobilize as many as 100,000 National Guard troops to round up unauthorized immigrants.”
White House press secretary senior assistant Michael Short quickly took to Twitter to refute the report:
Not true. https://t.co/T8rA87kJaU

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said of the report: “That is 100 percent not true. It is false. It is irresponsible to be saying this. There is no effort at all to round up, to utilize the National Guard to round up illegal immigrants.”
