Trump Administration Considering Mobilizing National Guard To Round Up Unauthorized Immigrants
President Donald Trump’s administration is considering mobilizing as many as 100,000 National Guard troops to round up unauthorized immigrants, according to a draft copy of an order obtained by The Associated Press.
The AP on Friday reported that an 11-page draft memo shows the Trump administration considering an unprecedented militarization of immigration enforcement as far north as Portland, Oregon, and as far east as New Orleans.
The memo, which has reportedly been circulating among DHS staff for two weeks, says participating troops would be authorized “to perform the functions of an immigration officer in relation to the investigation, apprehension and detention of aliens in the United States,” according to the AP.
Eleven states would be targeted for raids, according to the memo. They include states on the U.S.-Mexico border like California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas, and non-border states like Oregon, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana. Governors in those states would have final approval on whether troops under their control participate, according to the AP.
