The news is out: [PORTLAND, Ore. (Reuters) – Federal law enforcement officers are cracking down on protesters in Portland, Oregon, under the Trump administration’s new executive order to protect U.S. monuments in what the state’s Democratic governor has called “political theater.”
Multiple videos posted online show camouflage-clad officers without clear identification badges using force and unmarked vehicles to transport arrested protesters.
“It’s kidnapping people!” one person said off-camera, as officers marched a protester away.
A U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) spokeswoman said on Friday agents had been deployed to Portland to support a newly launched U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) unit, tasked with enforcing last month’s executive order from Republican President Donald Trump to protect federal monuments and buildings.
In addition to Border Patrol agents, Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers are helping DHS’s Federal Protective Service, which provides security for federal buildings, ICE said.
Oregon Governor Kate Brown called it “a blatant abuse of power by the federal government,”
“This political theater from President Trump has nothing to do with public safety,” Brown wrote on Twitter.]
It’s UN-Constitutional, people! Every single day in the US of A, Trump finds a new way to shit on the Constitution. And the reason can be found in the fact that there is no one who will stand in his way to uphold the oath they took to defend the same Constitution. Let’s remind everyone that 38% of Americans approve of his criminality.
