The Department of Homeland Security and local officials clash over how to handle the violence; William La Jeunesse reports. Ted Cruz unleashed on Democrats Saturday for "facilitating and cheering" on violent protests in Portland, which he likened to cities that have experienced deadly clashes in Iraq and Lebanon.
Cruz, R-Texas, retweeted a graphic video that purports to show Antifa and Black Live Matter activists attacking a boarded-up federal courthouse in Portland overnight Friday. This is not Beirut. This is America," Cruz tweeted.
Protests against systemic racism and police brutality have been a nightly feature in deeply liberal Portland since the death of Minneapolis man George Floyd while in police custody on May CS tear gas and less-lethal weapons were used, and multiple arrests were made. The administration has enlisted federal agents, including the U. Marshals Special Operations Group and an elite U.
But Oregon Public Broadcasting reported this week that some agents had been driving around in unmarked vans and snatching protesters from streets not near federal property, without identifying themselves. Democrat Gov. Kate Brown said Trump is looking for a confrontation in the hope of winning political points elsewhere and distracting from his widely panned response to the coronavirus pandemic.
Arrests are not kidnappings.
