Donald Trump is set to escalate his federal intervention in cities Wednesday by expanding 'Operation Legend,' deploying FBI and other agents to Chicago and Albuquerque to quell what he claims is out of control violence.
The move was to be announced Wednesday afternoon by Trump at the White House - putting him once again at odds with Democratic mayors, especially Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot.
They have opposed deploying federal forces to tackle protests. But Operation Legend, which was started in Kansas City, MO, involves surging Department of Justice, not Department of Homeland Security, agents to tackle crime rather then protests.

good talking school choice too, needs to make headway on that.
Beats me. I haven’t even been through Albuquerque in two years.
Obviously,she has no idea that destroying property of any kind is a crime....Stealing is a crime...Hurting others is a crime..SHOOTING IS A CRIME...She has allowed so much crime to go unpunished,maybe she doesn’t think of any of these as crimes,anymore????
Trump has every right to enforce federal civil rights and federal criminal statutes, just as Ike and JFK did. Republicans are the new persecuted minority in leftist cities. Of course, that doesn’t include leftists stealing from and killing each other.
Thanks for the ping, LHI.
The man speaking now about his wife’s murder makes be want to cry, I am so proud Trump is taking this violence on despite the media and the hate filled Dem opposition.
Now this Black woman who lost her son to violence, Dems doing nothing, Trump stepping it up.
LOL! As if she can do anything about it.
...because that would harsh her mellow, or something.
More likely because it would underscore her incompetence.
Didn’t Abraham Lincoln do the same thing
Nope. Preserving their pensions is first priority. If she orders them to resist the federal agents, they will.
Clubfoot is about to loose her footing
They're tired of getting busted for their illegal activities, and now they're squealing to defund and get rid of the police so that they can do whatever they please. Back to the law of the Jungle.
It actually gets pretty funny when these idiots get blowback and start calling for the cops.
So apparently he cares about gangsters, and Federal buildings.
I wonder if these surge-ees are volunteers?
Nope, but this more of a surge against street crime like when they brought in the State Police awhile back.
Those who elect DIMs/LIBs/leftists need to pay attention. Patience with their continuing anti-civilization & anti-American lunacy is running thin.
The witless nitwit mayor is a crime.
