President Donald Trump is planning on using the Insurrection Act to remove illegal immigrants from the United States, The Daily Caller has learned.
According to multiple senior administration officials, the president intends to invoke the tremendous powers of the act to remove illegal immigrants from the country.
Were doing the Insurrection Act, one official said.
Under the Insurrection Act of 1807, the president has the authority to use the National Guard and military in order to combat unlawful obstruction or rebellion within U.S. borders. The act was last invoked in 1992 by George H.W. Bush to quell the Los Angeles riots, and was also used by Eisenhower in 1957 to enforce school desegregation in the south.
An official expressed concerns that Trumps use of the acts powers would face legal challenges, pointing to the lawsuits against the presidents travel ban from majority-Muslim countries. However, as the official noted, the travel ban ultimately prevailed in the Supreme Court.
In addition to the Insurrection Act, the president is also considering declaring the country full and insisting that the U.S. can no longer handle the massive influx of illegal immigrants. 2019 is currently on pace to reach the highest levels of illegal immigration in a decade.
If you take a ship and it holds 1,000 people maximum one more person and the ship is going to collapse, the official explained. The country is full.
Our hospitals are full, our detention centers are full, they added.

The beauty of all this is that Trump uses established Federal statutes as the basis of these decisions — thereby undermining any arguments from members of Congress to oppose him. LOL.
Winning. I’m not getting tired
The Insurrection Act, it sounds good to me. Boot their asses over the yet to be built wall in the name of national chaos.
All true and anything to get going on getting illegals home is great, but he just proposed a new immigration plan today, before the Dems put their fingerprints on it (if it is going anywhere) that still puts a million legal immigrants a year on the path toward citizenship.
If this is true, and if he does it (2 bigifs), then he just won 2020. Dems might as well let him run unopposed.
Stop the talk and do it. Too bad courts will block the move.

Muslim countries like Venezuela.
Of course it will. But in the meantime he will have deported thousands.
I bet Barr suggested this.
We have to stop pretending that every woman whose husband beats them can get asylum in the USA. Or gays from countries who do not not like them or people from 3rd world sh*tholes where gangs threaten them.
Or that jihadis are really on a personal inner retreat ...
or that the cartels are just supplying a demand and making a living to feed their families ...
or that we can afford to allow foreigners to control our border ...
Will it include federal judges?
Would an attempted coup count as insurrection?
Amen to that. What's that radio station slogan "less talk, more music"?
I'm still waiting for the music.
Well, Lincoln did it, and he could get away with anything he wanted to do after that. I've read one account that claims he locked up 38,000 people, including arresting a Federal Judge, issuing an arrest warrant for the Chief Justice of the Supreme court, and having a Congressman arrested for making speeches critical of Lincoln.
So yeah, go for it! We can start locking up Democrats!
It would be nice, for a change, to see these threats actually implemented...
How can there be "winning" when the battle/game hasn't even been actually started/implemented yet?
Also remember what is going to happen next week! This is to prep the public for what will happen very, very soon.
