Elite Border Patrol agents have been sent to sanctuary cities by the Trump administration to arrest illegal aliens.
Members of the Border Patrol Tactical Unit (BORTAC) are being deployed to assist Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to arrest and remove illegal aliens in sanctuary cities.
Lawrence Payne, a spokesman for Customs and Border Protection (CBP), confirmed that 100 CBP officers are included in the group to assist ICE.
The specially trained BORTAC officers respond in high-risk operations and work as a SWAT team of the Border Patrol.
From Daily Caller:
BORTAC isn’t the only special unit being deployed across the country.
In total, 50 Border Patrol agents and 50 Office of Field Operations officers are part of Customs and Border Patrol’s (CBP) deployment.
These 100 individuals come from a slate of different areas within CBP, not just BORTAC.
The New York Times first reported on the administration’s decision to deploy CBP officers to sanctuary cities.
These Border Patrol teams will operate in sanctuary cities from February to May.
They will be tasked with backing up ICE agents during deportation operations and routine immigration arrests.
The Department of Homeland (DHS) argued that, with so many ICE agents reassigned to the U.S.-Mexico border amid the immigration crisis, their operations were stretched thin in the interior of the country.
