The situation in Portland doesn't seem to be getting any better. On Friday night in Portland, Oregon, far-left rioters gathered in the streets to burn Bibles and American flags.
According to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) the riots had calmed down on Thursday as “federal and state officers located inside the courthouse were not forced to leave the building during the course of the night."
On Friday night however, the far-left demonstrators burned American flags and bibles in front of the federal courthouse in Portland.
Check out what the Daily Wire reported:
Numerous journalists who were on the ground said that the left-wing activists were trying to provoke a response from the federal agents inside.
One journalist reported that rioters dumped garbage in front of one exit. “CBP clears the hazard and agitators begin to provoke a response from federal officers,” he wrote along with video of the incident.
“Agitators trying to provoke a response from federal officers,” the journalist added. “Violently battering the door with kicks and using their shield as a battering ram.”
On Friday evening, President Donald Trump tweeted, “Homeland Security is not leaving Portland until local police complete cleanup of Anarchists and Agitators!”
According to journalist Andy Ngo, the protesters were starting fires and destroying buildings.
“Rioters at gathering in Portland are tearing off barricades of an arcade nearby federal courthouse. Portland Police are aware but will let them continue because they’re given directive to leave rioters alone in most circumstances,” Ngo reported. “Black bloc militants in downtown Portland are trying to break into a business near the federal courthouse at the peaceful protest. They’re prying off the wood that is covering glass window.”
Acting DHS Secretary Chad Wolf released a statement earlier this week stating that he was working with the leadership in the area to come up with a plan to end the violence from the left-wing rioters.
“That plan includes a robust presence of Oregon State Police in downtown Portland,” Wolf said. “State and local law enforcement will begin securing properties and streets, especially those surrounding federal properties, that have been under nightly attack for the past two months. Oregon State Police will coordinate with Federal Protective Service (FPS) officers to ensure all federal facilities remain protected and secure. ”
“This plan is possible due to the valiant efforts of the DHS law enforcement officers protecting federal property in Portland from violent activity for the past two months,” Wolf added. “The Department will continue to maintain our current, augmented federal law enforcement personnel in Portland until we are assured that the Hatfield Federal Courthouse and other federal properties will no longer be attacked and that the seat of justice in Portland will remain secure. This has been our mission and objective since the violent, criminal activity began.”
