Tonight’s question, greetings, and banter here. (More)
Today the Associated Press reported that the God-King has considered mobilizing 100,000 National Guard troops to round up undocumented immigrants. Of course White House Sewer Outlet Sean Spicer denied it, but the AP then released a copy of a draft memo that was circulated within the Department of Homeland Security. Right-wing sites quickly insisted the idea came from President Obama, but Vox’s Dara Lind explains that Obama did not allow national guard members to do raids or make arrests, with the leaked memo would authorize. Was leaking the memo a trial balloon, as both Atrios and Steve M suggest?
