After a tense congressional hearing where Democrats excoriated the US Attorney General for deploying federal agents to cities like Portland, Bill Barr announced an expansion of a program to tackle rising violent crime in the US.

The FBI, US Marshals Service, Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) have all been directed to “significantly increase resources” in Cleveland, Detroit, and Milwaukee – three cities newly added as part of an expansion of Operation Legend, which launched on July 8.

Operation Legend – named after four-year-old LeGend Taliferro, who was killed last month
