As election officials brace for an unprecedented turnout, there's at least one thing millions of voters won't see: ICE agents milling about the polls.

Per The Sacramento Bee:

Rumors began swirling on social media that Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents would be patrolling polling stations across the country.

A Milwaukee woman reported finding a flier saying that ICE would be stationed at polling 
places, and that voters were encouraged to “report illegal aliens,” according to ProPublica. She reported it.

But the agency said earlier in the year that it would not be stationed at polling places and that any suggestions it does are false.

“ICE does not patrol or conduct enforcement operations at polling locations. Any flyers or advertisements claiming otherwise are false,” ICE wrote on Twitter.

President Trump tweeted earlier that law enforcement would be monitoring "ILLEGAL VOTING" but did not explicitly mention ICE agents.
