ACLU Blocks Trump’s Unmarked Federal Police ‘Terrorizing’ Portland, Trump Promises to Invade More Cities

The American Civil Liberties Union of Oregon announced it won a temporary restraining order against President Donald Trump’s unmarked police from dispersing, arresting, threatening to arrest, or targeting force against journalists or legal observers at protests in Portland, Oregon:

Under the court order, federal agents also cannot unlawfully seize any photographic equipment, audio- or video-recording equipment, or press passes from journalists and legal observers, or order journalists or legal observers to stop photographing, recording, or observing a protest.

After losing in court, Trump announced on Fox News that he was going to send tens of thousands of unmarked and untrained Department of Homeland Security agents into American cities:

We’re going to all of the cities, any of the cities, we’re ready. We’ll put in 50,000, 60,000 people that really know what they’re doing and they’re strong, they’re tough.

And we could solve these problems so fast, but, as you know, we have to be invited in. At some point, we’re going to have to do something that’s much stronger than being invited in.
