White House deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley was asked on “Fox & Friends” about reports that the Trump administration was considering invoking the Insurrection Act to have the military remove immigrants from the U.S.
Gidley did not deny the reports:
There are lots of tools at [President Donald Trump’s] disposal. We haven’t used them all and we’re looking at ways to protect the American people.
The live studio audience supported the notion of using the U.S. military on immigrants, as did co-host Brian Kilmeade:
That would be great. Last time we used [the Insurrection Act], I believe, was the L.A. riots where the military came in and said we are going to need military presence there. The military is there [at the border] but they can’t do as much as they want.
