The announcement marks an expansion of Operation Legend, a plan that was launched in several cities last month to help combat spikes in crimes such as murder.
President Donald Trump plans to deploy federal agents in more locations to curb street demonstration violence and crime in general. He announced that earlier.
Trump believes that some (democratic) mayors are not responding appropriately to the violent crimes. Among other things, he mentioned the city of Chicago and said that his government would “not watch” the violence in the city increase. Federal troops previously went to Portland, Oregon, and Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Demonstrations against racism and police brutality have taken place in the United States since the death of black American George Floyd when he was arrested in Minneapolis in May, and tensions have increased in many cities. Demonstrations against police brutality have become violence and looting in several cities.
