The U.S. Department of Homeland Security is crafting plans to deploy about 150 federal agents to Chicago this week, the Chicago Tribune has learned, a move that would come amid growing controversy nationally about federal force being used in American cities.
The Homeland Security Investigations, or HSI, agents are set to assist other federal law enforcement and Chicago police in crime-fighting efforts, according to sources familiar with the matter, though a specific plan on what the agents will be doing had not been made public.
One city official said the city was aware of the plan but not any specifics. The Chicago Police Department had no immediate comment.
One Immigration and Customs Enforcement official in Chicago, who asked not to be named because they were not authorized to speak on the matter, confirmed the deployment was expected to take place. The official noted that the HSI agents, who are part of ICE, would not be involved in immigration or deportation matters.
It was unclear where all the agents would be coming from, though many were expected to be from agencies operating in the Chicago area. Questions remained about the chain of command they would fall under.

One city official said the city was aware of the plan but not any specifics.... ............................... OK, that means, the Democrats will leak it out if they find out.
Just because it’s not publicly announced doesn’t mean it’s not known.
I have, yet another, dumb question: Why not send the FeebEye and enforce Federal drug laws with arrests of kingpins”?
That would cut back on the killing in Chicago.
Kingpins have been safe in Chicago for a long time.
This will unhinge Groot.
Stay out it. You can’t win a land war against Russia.
“Kingpins have been safe in Chicago for a long time.”
Yup. And the drug cartels run Chicago and Cook County.
“This will unhinge Groot.”
That ship has sailed.
Good going, DJT! You are acting to save BLACK lives in Chicago. I’m betting my finest prayer rug the democrats turn this into a negative and blame next weekend’s murders on Trump! Dems do not want a safe city! They will be glad to have more Black deaths so that they can trash Trump.
DEA could go in and break down the gangs pretty quickly.
I would say just let these corrupt cities collapse, but that is the left’s plan. As rotten as they are, they are also major economic hubs and if they do collapse, it will damage the economy. Of course, this is what the Democrats, Soros, and the ChiComs want.
I know it sounds like a no brainer, but its more complicated.
“King Pins” need to be brought down by RICO because they never, ever go near the product.
Their “depth” is amazing. You take out 1 today, and two more will be there tomorrow.
Finally, the amount of money being moved is incredible. They are buying protection from everyone.
Remember all those billions of rounds of small arms ammunition that Homeland Security bought a few years back?
Now we know why.
Now why did you go and insult my favorite extraterrestrial tree?
I thought that the agents were to protect any or all Federal property in Chicago as in Portland?
This might be part of Operation Legend that Barr put in place a couple of weeks ago:
Anyone heard from the Rev-Rund Jesse Jackson since this all began?
Personally I think Trump should go to Chi- town, maybe drop by the obama presidential liberry to see how things are shaking,
Democrats need to completely destroy Chicago. And then make a fortune rebuilding it.
“Remember all those billions of rounds of small arms ammunition that Homeland Security bought a few years back?
Now we know why.”
All ammunition must be GREEN to protect the lake.

In a written statement, the Coast Guard said it would reconsider its live fire proposal, including the location of water training areas and the use of environmentally friendly alternatives to the lead ammunition currently used.
The U.S. Coast Guard has abandoned its plan to conduct live fire weapons training on the Great Lakes. Steve Carmody has more:
