43 federal arrests in Portland since July 4, federal officials say

Homeland Security agents have also been deployed to the U.S. -Mexico border along with national guard troops during the crisis there. Some members of the group started kicking and pounding on plywood attached to glass doors at the courthouse.

Wolf said, so far, federal officers have arrested 43 people in Portland since July 4.

Federal agents who have been eerily compared to the Gestapo - Adolf Hitler's Nazi secret police force - are expected to be coming to several cities soon in a purported attempt to end violence by, well, bringing violence.

Rioters collected fences and plywood and used the items to block an exit from the courthouse.

DHS had affirmed that Portland is a cesspool of anarchists assaulting federal officers and federal buildings.

At one point, rioters set fire to some of the wood placed on the courthouse.

"One of things the Lieutenant Governor and I have said many times around our available law enforcement resources is we go where we're invited", Baker said Wednesday when asked about the role of federal agents in Portland.

"I've been very clear that we welcome actual partnership", the Democratic mayor said Tuesday after speaking with federal officials.

They point to the federal officers' use of less-lethal munitions against protesters that have caused serious injury and to the grabbing of people off the street and pulling them into unmarked vehicles.

"These police officers are not storm troopers, they are not Gestapo". "And that coordination was not made with Portland police". Portland Police did not engage with any crowds and did not deploy any CS gas.

"This is precisely the type of tyrannical deployment of power that the Founding Fathers were specifically anxious about", said Jeffrey A. Engel, director of Center for Presidential History at Southern Methodist University.

"These individuals congregate in the same area night after night. And yet the city of Portland takes little to no action to stop or disperse this crowd", Wolf said. DHS can temporarily authorize officers and agents from its other components-including Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Customs and Border Protection (CBP)-to protect federal buildings. Successive polls in recent weeks have shown he is behind in critical battleground states, largely due to his mishandling of coronavirus, which has now killed more than 140,000 Americans.

This isn't hard: It is the people attacking federal property who bear moral responsibility for what's happening in Portland.

Protesters there have been staging nightly demonstrations since May in a section of downtown that includes the federal courthouse, forcing most businesses in the zone to close.

He was referring to reports of unidentifiable security officers taking aggressive action against protesters. "The only people federal agents will be removing from the street are those they arrest in the course of their investigations of violent crimes".

That evening, two separate demonstrations split Portland police and federal officers-with local cops responding to a rally outside their union headquarters and the feds in downtown, guarding another building they care deeply about. The Trump administration's reportedly planning to do the same across other cities in America. including Chicago.

The Trump administration is facing growing pushback - in the courts and on the streets - to sending federal agents to Portland, Oregon, where protests have spiraled into violence, and vowing to do the same in other Democratic-led cities.

"Chad Wolf needs to be "proactively" relieved of duty", tweeted journalist Amr Khalifa in response to the remarks.

But with the border largely shuttered because of the coronavirus and the number of illegal crossings plummeting, President Trump has now turned the department onto what he sees as a threat within the USA and one that similarly plays to his base: Violence following police reform protests that have rocked the nation since the death of George Floyd in the custody of Minneapolis police.

Then, anger flared again over the weekend after video surfaced of a federal agent hitting a U.S. Navy veteran repeatedly with a baton while another agent sprays him in the face with pepper spray. That idea is reflected in the Posse Comitatus Act, which generally bars the federal military from participating in domestic law enforcement.

That prompted a number of responses, some comical and some in disbelief, from users on social media over that official's bewilderment. A review of the footage shows they did.
