this is what i feared would happen with deportations
was the NG used in the South during the Civil Rights era or am I thinking of another body?*
that was mostly Federal troops, i.e. the 101st Airborne in Little Rock
There'll be a lot of pictures like the Elián González one*
The ARNG does not exist for law enforcement
What this man says.*
This seems like something to float out to distract and then deny*
DHS now confirming memo did exist
I'm sure the LGBT EO draft existed too
I'm sure they're also the ones who floated the rumor that Ivanka and Jared lobbied against it*
Apparently Jared is full team Bannon-Miller*
There is actually an OK reading of this...
And here's the quick denial
Military is about the only institution the public has any trust in
it's the nuclear option, you're talking about pulling 100,000 people out of work
Rick Perry pulled 1000 National Guardsmen to the border in 2013. Trump is hiring 5000 border guards*
Oh, that's *never* happened before*
States have deployed National Guard troops to the border during Obama's term
why did they not deny when the AP requested comment before publishing the story?
Make you guys look like powerless know-nothings?*
because "requested comment" often means you sent an email and didn't get an immediate response
that's probably true. But even if so, it only took the WH what 5 minutes to put out a denial
based on my experience, five minutes wouldn't entirely shock me
I would hope for something that big they would wait longer than that*
and an AP reporter said during the Spicer statement that the AP made multiple requests before
obviously I have no idea what happened here
oh I agree. I've seen that too. Any time i see so and so did not 'immediately respond'
AP stories are always works in progress.
man that happens to us.
They can claim fake news. It's all a ploy*
Has there been reporting on National Guard coming to Chicago to shoot all the black people yet
Plus, it's fascist as ####*
