Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is looking into reports that one of its officers wore an NYPD jacket that caused alarm for New York City residents, according to a report.
The agency said “police” is a “universally recognized symbol of law enforcement in most cultures.”
ICE PLANNING IMMIGRATION ENFORCEMENT OPERATIONS IN SANCTUARY CITIES

“I think this is something everyone should be aware of,” Shea told FOX Business’ Maria Bartiromo during an interview. “Not just NYPD, but any business should be aware of. This is a real threat.”
