Somebody should tell Nancy (if she didn’t already know)
Nancy Pelosi @SpeakerPelosi
First Amendment speech should never be met with one-sided violence from federal agents acting as Trumps secret police, especially when unidentified. This is disgraceful behavior we would expect from a banana republic not the government of the United States.

“For days, federal agents in unmarked cars have reportedly been snatching Portland protesters off the streets.”
Any word what he was arrested for?
This single incident has been repeatedly cited as federal overreach.
Apparently no other such episode has occurred since as no doubt such a videoed event would be immediately viral online.
Yet they persist in in calling them "unmarked" or "unidentified" or "secret". No doubt a combination of stupidity and deliberate attempts to mislead/mis-characterize and agitate.
SRT, is the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Special Response Team - like a SWAT team (Federal Marshalls are also participating):
Identifying patches on both shoulders, "POLICE" on their front and back, and a public affairs spokesperson ready to answer any questions from the presstitutes. But they prefer to peddle dark fantasies.
So? They are federal law enforcement officers and can enforce all federal laws.
“A memo consisting of internal talking points for the federal agency responsible for the arrest, Customs and Border Protection (CBP), and obtained exclusively by The Nation”
Oh! High drama and intrigue!
“Dated July 1, the memo is titled Public Affairs Guidance”
A fricking Press Release!
These Left Wingnuts are so out of touch with real life, or having to make real things work, in the real world, that they are just clueless buffoons.
Border Patrol Tactical Unit (BORTAC) personnel took part in the response to the LA Riots in 1992. It is not like they are some kind of secret new Trump SS.
All they had to do was ask at DOJ’s Public Affairs Office, to get the press release (which apparently somebody did for them).
This is typical Federal response for rioting - less than typical, actually pretty minimal.
BORTAC from the Border Patrolthey are the specially trained Agents that are experts in crowd control, apprehensions and other skills.
You dont want to screw with basic Border Patrol Agents, let alone BORTAC.
When my son was a line Agent in AZ, he, alone, routinely took down groups numbering anywhere from a couple dozen to 106 on one night.
Those guys have the most physically demanding training in their academy.
No nonsense kind of guys.
