Portland mayor slams Trump’s use of federal police in city

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler (D) Sunday slammed the Trump administration’s use of federal law enforcement officials in his city, calling it ’abhorrent’ and demanded the federal agents be removed from the city. ’People are being literally scooped off the street...They are being denied probable cause,’ Wheeler said adding that the presence of federal officers is leading to more violence.
