PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) The mayor of Portland demanded Friday that President Donald Trump remove militarized federal agents he deployed to the city after some detained people on streets far from federal property they were sent to protect.
Keep your troops in your own buildings, or have them leave our city, Mayor Ted Wheeler said at a news conference.
Democratic Gov. Kate Brown said Trump is looking for a confrontation in the hopes of winning political points elsewhere and to serve as a distraction from the coronavirus pandemic, which is causing spiking numbers of infections in Oregon and the nation.
Browns spokesman, Charles Boyle, said Friday that arresting people without probable cause is extraordinarily concerning and a violation of their civil liberties and constitutional rights.

He can f*** himself. He’s mayor and police commissioner, and the mob has tried to burn down the city courthouse for over 40 days. Police have been attacked with hammers and rocks and he’s done nothing.
Are these pinkos truly being arrested “without probable cause”?
I kinda doubt it, but am open to any evidence of same.
Restoring Law and Order is a Bad thing ?
Trump to mayor: Says you and what army?
The American citizens need protection, but these mayors , city councils and governors are not doing their jobs. The PRESIDENT is taking care of people.
“””””The mayor of Portland demanded Friday that President Donald Trump remove militarized federal agents “”””””””
Demand in one hand.
____ in the other.
Gee, now they like the Constitution...
POTUS has the DUTY to protect all states against insurrection and rebellion.
Why Trump does not invoke the appropriate legislation is a mystery. It would probably upset Ivanks.
Trump to Mayor, “get bent”.
I for sure don’t “Trust Sessions”
...but I for fk sure trust Trump!
If he or the Rat governor won’t protect the people of Portland, their primary responsibility, then Trump will.
Mayor has zero authority
I think he should arrested for not obeying the supremacy clause. Federal troops have a right to be there enforcing federal law without the mayor taking the side of obstructing rioters.
F Portland. Let them destroy that POS city and all other RAT infested cities. Just dont ask taxpayers to pay for it. Miserable bunch of idiots.
Trump to Mayor, get bent.
Trump has to invoke the insurrection act or hes acting illegally.
Since the mayor, AND the governor are absent, in protecting the citizens of the city, thereefore the state, it is the duty of the President of the United States to act in defense of the entire population.
Since antifa has been designated a terrorst organization, the feds have every right, in enacting The Patriot Act, and, The Military Commissions Act of 2006.
So, she's admitting that getting rid of rioters and giving back Portland to law abiding citizens is a winner
He should also start an investigation into this mayors activities.It seems to me he has an affinity for terroristic activities in his city.
