A potential trial balloon from the Trump administration Friday morning has caused heartburn on social media and led to accusations of “deportation force” and cries of “Nazi!”

According to a report from the Associated Press, the Trump administration is considering a proposal to mobilize up to 100,000 National Guard troops to “round up” illegal immigrants in 11 states.  

Now this is not a firm proposal yet. The AP’s report is based off a “draft memo.”

And the White House has vehemently denied that the report is accurate.

But if that statement was meant to keep people from freaking out … too late …

Spicer’s denials were received with skepticism.

And then there’s this …

That’s not stopping folks.

The calls for resistance were immediate.

The Democratic Trump opposition is up in arms.

And Shaun King went as far as predicting Civil War over this issue.

Civil. War. Over a proposal from a draft memo which the White House denies is under consideration for serious policy. 

Is it true? Is the report false? Regardless, don’t expect this story to go away anytime soon.

But is anyone talking about Russia now?
