I was asking if all sanctuary cities do not allow any cooperation between their police and ICE.
We're not talking about a paramility unity patrolling the streets of major metropolitans and demanding Americans show them "papers".

Among the illegals in our largest cities are some of the most dangerous gangs on the planet. Not exactly what a normal ICE agent would deal with, so you have special teams. Those gangs are into human trafficking and hardcore narcotics distribution and there are thousands of them in the US. The local cops are outmatched so they just try and contain them. A cop with a handgun, some mace and maybe a taser is not about to deal with that and go up against a gang armed with military hardware that control whole neighborhoods.
What about other violent criminals that are not illegal migrants?

I actually did mention most of what you said.
It means a murderer or rapist can be arrested for a minor crime and even though the police know from ICE they are murderers or rapists, the local cops will not tell ICE and they will just let them go.
If they are arrested for minor crimes by LEO, why does ICE need a SWAT team?
ETA: Also why not use an FBI/ATF/DEA team?
The mission of BORTAC is "to respond to terrorist threats of all types anywhere in the world in order to protect our nation’s homeland." In essence, BORTAC teams often conduct drug raids on high value targets, as well as sometimes being attached to Border Patrol or Air and Marine Operations units to assist them in their duties. BORTAC does not only conduct operations on the US-Mexico Border. BORTAC teams are often used to provide a tactical federal law enforcement capability across the country, helping with security for events such as the Super Bowl, as well as being deployed to natural disaster areas to ensure that civil unrest does not break out. Additionally, BORTAC teams can be called upon to assist local law enforcement in high-profile events such as the 1992 Los Angeles riots, where they were part of the 1,000 riot-trained federal special agents sent in an attempt to end the rioting in the Los Angeles region; and the 2015 Clinton Correctional Facility escape, where a BORTAC team inserted by helicopter shot and killed escaped prisoner Richard Matt. BORTAC has been assigned to operate in sanctuary cities to increase immigration enforcement. Finally, BORTAC teams can sometimes be deployed overseas to assist and train countries in drug enforcement and border security techniques.
Why you can't see how they could be helpful in dealing with violent gangs made up of illegals in sanctuary cities is beyond me.
If it helps in any way to remove the illegals who form gangs and engage in human trafficking and narcotics sales, it's a good thing.
According to the FBI, 67,642 murders were committed in the U.S. from 2005 through 2008, and 115,717 from 2003 through 2009. The General Accounting Office documents that criminal immigrants committed 25,064 of these murders.
Illegal immigrants clearly commit a level of violent and drug related crimes disproportionate to their population.
In California alone, over 2,400 illegal immigrants out of a total prison population of 130,000 are imprisoned in the state’s prison system for the crime of homicide.
