President Trump has sent federal agents into Portland to protect federal property. There are violent leftists rampaging around the city. So he has acted.
According to the Washington Examiner:
Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf said federal law enforcement officers in Portland, Oregon, will not stand down as requested by local leaders.
He told Fox News host Sean Hannity on Thursday that they will continue their mission to protect the federal courthouse amid protests.
“Earlier this week, I called not only the mayor, but the governor. I offered DHS support to help them locally address the situation that’s going on in Portland, and their only response was ‘please pack up and go home.’ That’s just not going to happen on my watch,” Wolf said.
He added that it is time for authorities to “take a stand.”
Portland’s mayor, Ted Wheeler, said on Tuesday that he told Wolf about the tactics used by federal law enforcement.
“I told the Acting Secretary that my biggest immediate concern is the violence federal officers brought to our streets in recent days, and the life-threatening tactics his agents use. We do not need or want their help,” the Democrat tweeted.
