There was a meeting between business leaders and Donald Trump at the White House on Thursday, where he described his administration’s moves in deporting the undocumented immigrants as a “military operation” …which is a label that counters what his administration has previously said, and now it’s causing some dismay.

The President has used a series of executive orders to chip away at the barriers for deportations but that is not all he is doing, he is also hiring new enforcement officials to head the effort. The Department of Homeland Security is being used to live up to Trump’s promises made during the 2016 campaign.
“We’re getting really bad dudes out of this country, and at a rate that nobody’s ever seen before,” Trump said Thursday. “And they’re the bad ones. And it’s a military operation.”
He added: “You see what’s happening at the border. All of a sudden for the first time, we’re getting gang members out. We’re getting drug lords out.”
A spokesperson for the White House said that Trump did not in fact misspeak by calling deportations a “military operation” but further clarified that the word ‘military’ was an adjective.
“The President was clearly describing the orderly and professional manner in which his executive orders are being implemented, and the administration’s emphasis on removing serious criminals here in the US illegally,” the spokesperson said.
No, Trump is not using the military to deport undocumented immigrants…snowflakes. The Department of Homeland Security Secretary, John Kelly has cleared this up with reporters…at least, that is what he tried to do. He stated there would be “no use of military force in immigration operations, none.”
Now Trump’s administration has done all they can to deny reports that the National Guard is taking lead on the deportation effort. Will it any good with liberals running around like the sky is falling.
“Not true,” Sean Spicer, White House press secretary, tweeted earlier this month after The Associated Press reported that the Trump administration was considering mobilizing the National Guard. “100% false.”
“Everybody who is here illegally is subject to removal at any time,” Spicer said. “That is consistent with every country, not just ours. If you’re in this country in an illegal manner, that obviously there’s a provision that could ensure that you be removed.”
