ICE personnel sent to Texas to aid hurricane operations

The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has sent around 200 personnel to Texas to provide "security for and assist with search and rescue efforts" in areas decimated by Hurricane Harvey, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) said in a release. 

“I’m extremely proud of the men and women of ICE who have stepped up to provide life-saving assistance to those in need,” ICE Acting Director Thomas D. Homan said in the release. “I have the utmost admiration for those who volunteer to forgo the comfort of their homes and families to help others in distress.”

DHS said the teams of "specially trained, volunteer members" were dispatched from ICE facilities across the United States.
