U.S. Border Patrol Tactical Units are being sent to sanctuary cities including Chicago as part of the Trump administration’s crackdown on the enforcement power of local Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers. Customs and Border Protection confirmed they are deploying 100 officers to work with ICE from February through May, which conducts arrests in the interior of the country, “in order to enhance the integrity of the immigration system, protect public safety, and strengthen our national security.”
Border Patrol Units (BORTAC) will back up ICE agents during deportation operations and stand by as a show of force, according to CBP officials. The operation’s goal is to increase arrests in the sanctuary jurisdictions by at least 35%.
