The White House is reportedly deploying additional troops to help the US Border Patrol Tactical Unit arrest illegal immigrates in major American cities.

Lawrence Payne, spokesman for the US Customsand Border Protection, that the officers to be deployed have to «undergo a gruelling training program.»
A number of the US cities have passed new regulations which limit cooperation with federal immigration enforcement and the White House is now trying to fight the Democrat-adopted policies by supporting Immigratiom and Customs Enforcement.
ICE acting director Matthew T Albence commented on the matter and said that «ICE is utilising CBP to supplement enforcement activity in respnse to the resourse challenges stemming from sanctuary city policies.»
«As we have noted for years, in jurisdictions where we are not allowed to assume custody of aliens from jails, our officers are forced to make at-large arrests of criminal aliens who have been released into communities,» he added.
The deployed officers will reportedly be assissting ICE from February till May.
