The Associated Press irresponsibly released a report Friday morning that caused mass confusion and chaos among the immigrant community.
The fake report announced that the Department of Homeland Security was considering using the National Guard to round up "thousands" of illegal immigrants and ship them back to Mexico.
Yes, illegals who break the law are being deported -- but DHS is not rounding up thousands of immigrants, as the AP erroneously reported.
The fake news frightened Mexican immigrants, who sheltered in churches to avoid being deported.
But DHS vigorously denied the report as a total fabrication by the once respected news wire service.
“The Department is not considering mobilizing the National Guard,” said Gillian Christensen, the acting press secretary for DHS.
Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary, also categorically denied the AP’s report Friday morning.
“Not true. 100% false,” he tweeted.
President Trump's first month in office has been marred by rogue news networks fabricating lies and releasing classified documents to create and environment of confusion and panic.
The American people have had enough.
A new Fox News poll shows more Americans trust the White House than the biased news media.
