Trump administration sends ‘feds,’ 20 ATF agents to Chicago
The Trump administration has deployed “the feds” to Chicago that the president threatened to send to the city earlier this year to get a handle on gun violence.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Friday detailed the federal “strike force” being deployed to the city to target violent offenders and investigate gun crimes.
The Chicago Crime Gun Strike Force will include 20 agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, six intelligence research specialists, 12 task force officers from the Chicago Police Department, two task force officers from the Illinois State Police, and four National Integrated Ballistics Information Network specialists, according to the Justice Department.
