LISTEN TO TLR’S LATEST PODCAST:


By Rachel Stoltzfoos

The White House disputed an Associated Press report Friday that President Donald Trump is considering sending the National Guard to round up illegal immigrants.

“This is not true,” White House press secretary Sean Spicer tweeted, within minutes of the AP report.

The AP claims to have obtained an 11-page draft memo outlining the potential plan, which would involve sending the troops nationwide to round up and deport illegal immigrants. The Jan. 25 document calls for the “unprecedented militarization” of immigration enforcement, the AP states, and is addressed to the heads of immigration enforcement.

Neither the White House nor the Department of Homeland Security responded to requests for comment, according to the AP, although multiple officials in the White House quickly denied the report once it was published.
