ICE Leader Warns Sanctuary Cities That They Are Coming

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Acting Director Thomas D. Homan says his team, unshackled by President Donald Trump, is “open for business” and planning to target sanctuary cities with additional resources and 10,000 new agents. 

And he’s not sorry about it. 

Homan told The Washington Examiner on Tuesday that deportation targets have surged now that President Trump has “taken the handcuffs off of law enforcement.” The top ICE official explained that illegal border crossings have plummeted by nearly 70% since Trump took office, “arrests inside the country have jumped 40% and that demands for illegal criminals in local jails has skyrocketed 80%.” 

Now that illegal crossing have dropped to “a historic low,” according to Homan, border officers can turn their attention to illegal immigrants settled in the country, including those in sanctuary cities, of which there are over 300 in the United States.
