As Portland continues to be rocked by social protests, the situation worsened Thursday when Acting Department of Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf visited the city, along with protesters and local leaders accused the federal government of abuse of power.
“The president is failing to lead this nation. Now he is deploying federal officers to patrol the streets of Portland in a blatant abuse of power by the federal government,” Brown said.
Could the protests in Portland and the federal government’s unconventional approach to intercession spark an open outbreak of hostilities in Portland or elsewhere? While unlikely, it’s possible that the violence could trigger unintended consequences and perhaps encourage groups like the Boogaloo Boys and other right-wing groups to exploit the situation for their own calls for a new American Civil War.
