Using the National Guard to round up immigrants is unacceptable. 

Here’s the post from today’s Bloomberg News: Trump Weighs Mobilizing the National Guard for Immigration Roundups

(AP) — The Trump administration considered a proposal to mobilize as many as 100,000 National Guard troops to round up unauthorized immigrants, including millions living nowhere near the Mexico border, according to a draft memo obtained by The Associated Press.

Staffers in the Department of Homeland Security said the proposal had been discussed as recently as last Friday.

Some things just require us to draw a line in the sand and say “no further”. 

S#%* like this ruins my happy place. 

Second Acts…

… need happy endings.
