I strongly oppose Donald Trump using 100,000 National Guard troops to round up undocumented immigrants

The Associated Press has just reported​ that Donald Trump may mobilize 100,000 National Guard troops to find, detain and deport undocumented immigrants across America.

Trump promised us a “deportation force,” and it’s time we took Trump at his word.

Sign the petition, tell Donald Trump that his fascism stops here.

The use of military-style troops to target a specific ethnic group nationwide — let’s be honest, this is about Mexicans — is unprecedented in recent times.​ You’d have to back to the internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II to get anything close.

Sadly, targeting people by their faith and their genetics is not unprecedented for this president and this White House. During the presidential campaign, Trump made clear his animus for Mexicans​​ and Muslims​. And recently, the Trump White House has shown repeated animus towards Jews as well.

It’s no coincidence that Trump’s White House is staffed at its most senior level with Alt Right/white supremacist sympathizers. And Trump himself has shown past sympathies to fascism. Trump admires “strong leaders” like Russia’s murderous thug Vladimir Putin, who Trump defends at every instant, and the communist Chinese leaders who violently put down the Tiananmen​ Square uprising. Here is what Trump​ has to say about Tiananmen:

“When the students poured into Tiananmen Square, the Chinese government almost blew it, then they were vicious, they were horrible, but they put it down with strength. That shows you the power of strength.”​

During the recent presidential campaign, Trump referred to the democracy uprising in China as simply “a riot.” And a riot, we all know, is something every government must put down.

Enough is enough. Mobilizing the United States Armed Forces — and that is what the National Guard is, part of the reserve component of the US Armed Forces — to target a specific ethnicity in American society is fascism at its worst. And it is only a matter of time before Trump’s fascist sympathies lead to violence.

Donald Trump is un-American. Any decision to use National Guard troops in mass numbers to round-up any community in this country is un-American. We must resist Trump’s illegitimate presidency and creeping fascism with every fiber of our being. Tell Donald Trump is no uncertain terms that you will not accept him sending 100,000 troops into our towns and cities in order to round up our neighbors.

Sign the petition, tell Donald Trump that his fascism stops here.

    It’s disgusting the way Trump acts!!

  • On further reading, one important point: the governors of the states included would have to approve the use of their National Guard for any such exercise.

    As per AP’s updated article, the proposal has been rejected. https://apnews.com/5508111d59554a33be8001bdac4ef830

    Even with the White House’s denials, it’s still an indication of the appalling direction the administration is taking.

    Trumpism is not a form of fascism, it’s just capitalism as usual.

    Fascism is distinguished by the creation of a massive armed movement to destroy unions and other mass movements for change.

    Wars of aggression, aggressive racism, government sanctioned union busting, misogyny, immigrant bashing and homophobia are attributes of every capitalist regime. They characterized the Obama and Clinton regimes, as well as the Reagan, Bush and Trump regimes.

    Fascism is different in it’s organized and extremely violent attacks on working people and is a phenomena that indicates that the death agony of capitalism is underway. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/eae7da894966d11891cdc84983e33fc33b4e3fb89f9f7783deeb33be80a372bf.jpg

    Like the Obama regime, the Trump regime is going to fail because it’ll enrage workers with it’s rabid border racist anti-worker politics.

    ” “They that sow the wind, shall reap the whirlwind” That’s a good thing.

  • Demosthenes

    Can the president legally use the national guard to arrest and deport people? Is there any limit on such a scary power?

  • carol schmidt

    Trump, Bannon and his staff are plotting to establish trump as a fascist dictator. Here are signs to look for:

    1. Controlled Mass Media (“See the dishonest people back there?” Trump said. “The media, they’re totally dishonest. They are so dishonest. CNN sucks.”
    2. Identification of Enemies/Scapegoats as a Unifying Cause (Rampant racism, liberals, Mexicans, Muslims, Clinton “LOCK HER UP!”)
    3. Rampant Cronyism and Corruption (Look at his cabinet)
    4. Corporate Power is Protected (Trump’s tax cuts will add 20% to corporate profits)
    5 .Fraudulent Elections ( Putin)
    6. Obsession with Crime and Punishment (“LOCK HER UP!” You have to have stop-and-frisk.”)
    7. Disdain for Intellectuals and the Arts (“I love the poorly educated. We’re the smartest people, we’re the most loyal people”)
    8. Obsession with National Security (“must greatly strengthen and expand its nuclear capability until such time as the world comes to its senses”)
    9 .Disdain for the Recognition of Human Rights (Mulim registery, rounding up illegals)
    10. Powerful and Continuing Ultra-Nationalism (“U.S.A! U.S.A! U.S.A!”)
    11. Supremacy of the Military (“Let it be an arms race. We will outmatch them at every pass and outlast them all,”)
    12. Rampant Sexism (“Grab them by the pus sy)
    13. labor Power is Suppressed (Pence is fiercely anti-union)
    14. Religion and Government are Intertwined (“I’m a Christian, a conservative, and a Republican, in that order.” – Pence)
    15. Full control of the judiciary.

    Bullshit!

    And that’s what every governor in every state – red or blue – should say to this so-called president.

    “Nuts!” works, too, but doubt the little facist in the WH would catch the reference..
