Operation Talon, a mission to target sex offenders who reside illegally in the United States, seems to have sparked much controversy on social media. On February 24, 2021, social media users expressed their disdain with rumors swirling that President Joe Biden had canceled Donald Trump’s initiative from his last few days of being in the White House.
A thorough investigation now suggests that it wasn’t Biden but ICE officials. It was reported that US Immigration and Customs Enforcement had shelved it as they prepare to issue new guidelines to agents who look after arrests and deportations. But now the bigger question that seems to have risen is: Did Operation Talon exist only on paper? Did the Trump administration have any track record of the mission? What really was the original Operation Talon plan and how does it work? Here’s a deep dive into the nationwide operation.
