CONFIRMED: Portland police are on the side of left-wing Antifa terrorists; the feds will need to bring them in line with law and order

In the 1840s when the Oregon Trail was completed and hundreds of thousands of Americans began migrating West, the journey was long and required a high degree of toughness, stamina, endurance, and a can-do attitude to navigate.

What Americans living in parts of Oregon have devolved into these days is a far cry from those early settlers who had little time for the nonsensical and inane.

In recent weeks, federal officers cleared anti-ICE protesters from “occupied” property in Portland after they had blocked the entrance to the facility for more than 30 days. The protesters left behind a filthy encampment rife with feces, needles, trash, and debris so thick that the city had to hire private contractors to clean it all up.

But the biggest problem wasn’t the mess or the occupation, per se, it was the abject refusal of the Portland mayor to allow the local police force to protect and defend the lives and safety of Immigration and Customs Enforcement employees who were threatened by protesters.

And, as The Gateway Pundit reports, the order by Mayor Ted Wheeler to the Portland Police Bureau to stand down during the ICE facility siege may wind up costing them dearly: ICE employees are fighting back and threatening a lawsuit if he continues to prevent his officers from protecting them.

Willamette Week reported:

The union that represents U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers says on at least two occasions last month two federal ICE employees called the Portland police while being harassed by protesters—but cops did not show up, because the Portland mayor had ordered them not to intervene.

Members of the union, called the National ICE Council, sent Mayor Ted Wheeler a cease and desist letter today demanding he instruct Portland police to assist federal agents if called upon.

Earlier, Wheeler said he did “not want the Portland Police to be engaged or sucked into a conflict” over his disagreement with the Trump administration’s border enforcement policies.

Translated: ‘Because I hate Trump and his immigration enforcement I refuse to protect anyone involved in carrying out his policies.’

Petulant, to be sure, but dangerous as well for the precedent it is setting. Besides encouraging more protests, Wheeler’s policy of disengagement will also encourage more violence against ICE employees.
