The American Left has become militant over two issues — preserving (and widening) abortion “rights” and “protecting” illegl aliens from U.S. immigration law enforcement efforts.

While abortion is in the news this week after Alabama passed the most expansive pro-life legislation in generations and Missouri is set to do the same, it’s the issue of illegal immigration that could actually spark new violence between the federal government and Leftists in deep blue states who believe in open borders.

A report from The Daily Caller that was widely ignored by most other media outlets claimed that POTUS Trump is seriously considering invoking the 1807 Insurrection Act and utilize its “tremendous powers” to begin widespread deportations of people in our country illegally.

“We’re doing the Insurrection Act,” one official reportedly told the news site.

TheDC noted further:

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 Trump’s use of the act’s powers would face legal challenges, pointing to the lawsuits against the president’s travel ban from majority-Muslim countries. However, as the official noted, the travel ban ultimately prevailed in the Supreme Court.
