The Office of Inspector General at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is investigating who leaked confidential details of raids that the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency had planned last month.

Last month, ICE agents had planned a multi-city raid that would have seen the arrest and deportation of at least 2,000 illegal aliens who had final orders for removal — that is, did not qualify for any asylum or refugee status.

The planned raids, though, were called off after details were leaked to the national media.

In a statement to Breitbart News, an ICE spokesperson confirmed that the DHS Office of Inspector General is investigating who leaked the details of the raids to the media, putting ICE agents and the scheduled operation in jeopardy.

The spokesperson said:

Last month, ICE became aware of an apparent leak related to a planned enforcement operation. Leaks of law enforcement sensitive information jeopardize the safety of ICE officers and agents who have sworn an oath to uphold the law. ICE referred the incident to its Office of Professional Responsibility, which, in accordance with its normal procedures, referred it to the DHS Office of Inspector General.

At the time of the leaks, former ICE Director Thomas Homan accused Acting DHS Secretary Kevin McAleenan of “resisting” the ICE operation.

Officials who spoke to Breitbart News on the condition of anonymity for fear of retribution said that internally at DHS, McAleenan has become known for leaking records to the media.
