Trump admin. to deploy 100 tactical Border Patrol officers to work with ICE in 10 so-called sanctuary cities across the country, a senior official with the Dept. of Homeland Security says.
This comes as the administration has repeatedly targeted sanctuary cities that limit cooperation with immigration enforcement authorities.Terms of Service A senior DHS official said the cities targeted in the deployment were New York City, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Houston, Boston, New Orleans, Detroit and Newark, New Jersey. The deployment will run from February to May, according to the official. News of the deployment was first reported A DHS official said that CBP agents and officers in the deployment come from different sectors and that some have been trained in tactical operations. Earlier this week, the Trump administration sued New Jersey and the county in Washington state that encompasses Seattle, claiming their governments are flouting federal immigration law through local sanctuary policies. The suit against New Jersey represented the first time the federal government has sued a state over its policy of limiting assistance to federal immigration authorities. The Justice Department was also seeking to halt a recent local policy in King County, Washington's most populous county, which prevents ICE from using a county airport for deportation flights. That announcement came a week after the administration announced that it was suspending enrollment in Global Entry and other Trusted Traveler Programs for New Yorkers. A day earlier, on Feb. 4, Trump criticized"New York's sanctuary policies" in his State of the Union address. Naureen Shah, a senior policy and advocacy counsel on immigrants’ rights at the American Civil Liberties Union, said in a statement that the deployment decision was"retaliation against local governments for refusing to do the administration’s bidding." "It will put lives at risk by further militarizing our streets," Shah said."Local governments should not face reprisals for focusing on community needs and using taxpayer money responsibly, instead of helping to deport and detain community members." "For three years, the administration has systematically empowered and expanded Customs and Border Protection’s authority, including by ramping up CBP’s budget," she said."Now, far beyond the border, CBP agents are attempting to circumvent local law enforcement to police the nation with zero accountability. Deploying CBP agents into cities is a dangerous and wasteful use of resources that primarily harms communities of color."

Will they be wearing 'Brown' shirts ? I will be so thankful when this nonsense of Drumpf has been removed from our national conscious. sgw94 (They’re mobilizing into your communities now.) That's simply Gestapo with extra words. That is what sane, intelligent, people see when they read this. They see 'Gestapo Gestapo, Homeland Insecurity, Gestapo'. It is *not* difficult to define ICE as a domestic terrorist group.
Thanks for the great news. President Trump, taking care of business. Keeping America great! Well Trump is kinda taking off the gloves but we will see. Trump just has to order AG Barr to investigate everyone involved in the Deep State. AG Barr refuses and put Guiliani as AG who will get the job done. trump's secret police .
good, time to enforce the laws.. these idiots , are giving illegals more rights then the American citizens.. Trump deploys SS officers to... The horror , I'm sorry but NBC should've lost the ability to use numbers in a public statement, after their calling of the 2016 elections. It was probably 10,000 tactical border patrol officers, I mean who can believe you now? slanted hiddenagenda
Posse comitatus mofo.
Border Patrol Will Deploy Elite Tactical Agents to Sanctuary CitiesThe Trump administration is sending elite units, the equivalent of Border Patrol SWAT teams, to sanctuary cities to help ICE round up undocumented immigrants Yeah that old lady cleaning dishes is pretty dangerous. Better get the seals. Oh my God. Here we go again. Trying to stir up violence with violence. I choose compassion over fear and hate. I teach many undocumented kids and they are 10X more respectful than my Louisiana students were. Stop the hysteria! Way to go Mr.President!
When do we get the special units to arrest the business owner employing these illegals with money off the books Yayyyy ! Brown Shirts? That's going no where Deporting illegal immigrants who commit crimes in our communities is a good thing... Good. If you don’t want to play by fed rules, you shouldn’t get any fed money. Force broke states into submission - its the illegals breaking these states!
I like the idea of keeping the US citizens safe. The Trump Administration plans to deploy Border Patrol agents in U.S. cities expressly to intimidate undocumented immigrants, interfere with the decisions of self-governing cities and states on sanctuary, gin up his base, and menace us all with what he thinks is unlimited power.
Merica Out every one of them. Post their faces around town, and don't cooperate with them.
Border officials: No cultural sites near blasting for border wallYeah RepRaulGrijalva if a Brown Nationalist who should be removed from office. we can give it to Mexico and see how they handle it Okay
If no one is doing anything illegally, then no worries, right? Hire more deploy more . This is going to be very interesting....the gestapo invading American cities. How did that work for them last time? Don't the cities have something to say about this...or the governors of the states targeted? Waste of tax payer money.
Ok, but what is he doing about the tunnels...? The Nazi's did the same thing We are now a Fascist State.
Trump administration shifting border agents to sanctuary cities for arrest operationsThe Trump administration is deploying 100 officers and agents from the southern border to so-called sanctuary cities in the U.S. to assist in arrest operations targeting immigrants who are in the U.S. illegally, according to two people familiar with the plan.
After delays, Trump on track to build more than 450 miles of border wallAfter years of setbacks, President Trump is on track to build more than 450 miles of a wall along the southern border within the year, the White House says, making good on a campaign pledge as he seeks reelection “The project will substantially be done by the end of the year or early next year,” Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law and senior adviser, said in an interview Friday with POLITICO How’s that vote taste, Texas ranchers? Does this take the place of the new infrastructure?
'A true desecration': Sacred Native American site blasted for Trump border wallCrews have been blasting the hillside at Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument in Arizona for sections of the federal government&39;s barrier. Sick. Worth noting: 516 square miles of park. The blasting is in the park. Not necessarily anywhere near the burial grounds.
