Trump Deploying ‘Elite Tactical Agents’ To 10 Sanctuary Cities To ‘Increase Deportation’ Across The U.S.

President Donald Trump is deploying a group of “elite tactical agents” to sanctuary cities across the United States to increase the number of arrests of undocumented immigrants, according to The New York Times.

Citing sources with knowledge of the operation, The Times reported that Trump is sending about 100 agents of the elite U.S. Border Patrol tactical unit known as BORTAC to 10 sanctuary cities, including:

Atlanta, Georgia
Boston, Massachusetts
Chicago, Illinois
Detroit, Michigan
Houston, Texas
Los Angeles, California
Newark, New Jersey
New Orleans, Louisiana
New York City, New York
San Francisco, California

The elite agents are expected to help Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents with deportation operations between February and May in an effort to increase arrests of undocumented immigrants by 35 percent, according to The Times.

The move comes as the Trump administration launched a full-fledged federal campaign to take on sanctuary jurisdictions. At the Justice Department, Attorney General William Barr has filed lawsuits against the sanctuary state of New Jersey and the sanctuary county of King County, Washington for their “obstruction” of national immigration law.
