Tactical Agents will be deployed to Sanctuary cities by the Border Patrol.
The Trump administration has decided to deploy the tactical units of law enforcement to the sanctuary cities across the nation. The forces will be moved from the southern border of the country as a part of the supercharged arrest operation. The operation is believed to be an escalation of the battle of Trump against the localities that refuse to follow the immigration enforcement, a topic-focused by the Trump administration.
The officers who have been specially trained are being deployed in various cities, including New York and Chicago.

Repo man took van away with a 1-year-old child inside panicked family.
Noel Saldana was at work when she received a call from her husband, who informed her that their 011 Acura minivan had been stolen from right in front of their East Orange apartment building. The most shocking part of the call was that their 1-year-old daughter Hannah was in the back seat. He said he put the child in the car and went back to the apartment to get their other 4-year-old child. During those few minutes, the car vanished. He immediately informed the police.
As he was panicking, Saldana called the bank as well that held the title to the vehicle. She said in her statement that she just got back to work, and they were little behind the payments. Little Hannah spent 45 minutes in the impound before police can track the car. She was taken to the hospital, where doctors declared her healthy. She was reunited with her mother. It is still unclear why operators at Kruse Towing didn’t check the back seat before taking the vehicle away.

Зубцов – находится на слиянии двух рек Вазузы и Волги, ну и дышится здесь действительно легко.
Зубцов, семитысячный городок в Тверской области, под Ржевом в 15 км, на слиянии Волги и Вазузы. Известен с 1216 года, с 1776 - уездный город.
На первом фото Впадение реки Вазузы в Волгу.
Живописное место. Слиянию Вазузы (небольшая речка в правой части кадра) и Волги (широкая река в центре) красоты придаёт холмистый рельеф.
На втором фото Герб г Зубцов красиво расположен на газоне
На третьем фото усадьба Крымова, одного из самых богатых и значимых местных купцов XIX-го века. Самое красивое старое здание в городе. На сегодня в этом здании находится школа.
На четвертом и пятом фото большой воинский мемориал.
Вот эти бетонные плиты, серые и простые, с выбитыми на них именами погибших. Всё бы ничего, но плиты эти тянутся здесь десятками метров, змейкой, в несколько ярусов. Более пятнадцати тысяч жертв, и это только Зубцов и окрестности. Всего же оборона Ржева только у советской армии отняла более 600 тысяч человек. Ржевско-Вяземский котёл часто называют вторым Сталинградом. И хоть в связи с теми событиями как правило вспоминают город Ржев, досталось тогда всей округе - и Зубцову, и Старице.
