The White House and the Department of Homeland Security denied a report from The Associated Press Friday that the Trump administration is considering a proposal to mobilize as many as 100,000 National Guard troops to enforce immigration law. An 11-page draft memo obtained by the AP calls for the unprecedented militarization of immigration enforcement as far north as Portland, Oregon, and as far east as New Orleans, Louisiana. The AP said Friday that its requests to the White House and the Department of Homeland Security for comment and a status report on the proposal were not answered. After the AP published the report, a spokeswoman for the DHS told NBC News the "AP story about the National Guard is incorrect. It's not true." White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer also told reporters the report is "100 percent not true."
