    Cannot lawfully operate on American soil.  It is not a domestic law enforcement or intel gathering agency. It's the CIA partnership with NYPD that's ringing the "illegal" bells for me.

      So yes, it's illegal.  If the CIA weren't involved and if the NYPD was evenhandedly investigating white areas too, it would be legal.

      But that just isn't the case.
