911 Calls By ICE Agents Ignored By Portland Police

Throughout the course of history, we’ve witnessed time and again, great and structured civil societies inevitably destroy themselves.

It usually starts with a breakdown of the fundamental precepts of what’s expected by both political leaders and institutions  tasked with regulating behavior, through principles and rules — namely “law and order” within that society.

Moreover, when we witness a breakdown of “law and order” by those very institutions tasked with maintaining the peace, are we then witnessing the inevitable destruction of our own society, or is it perhaps an anomaly?

Case in point, the Portland police willfully refused last week to respond to fellow law enforcement emergency pleas for assistance, as a violent mob protested outside their Immigration and Customs Enforcement building. At least two 911 calls were made by ICE employees begging police for assistance.

The woeful incident drew the immediate attention of The National Immigration and Customs Enforcement Council, a union representing ICE employees. And within a matter of days, a cease-and-desist letter was officially sent to Mayor Ted Wheeler, demanding him to ensure and enforce the protection of innocent people trapped by a hostile mob within office buildings, regardless of who they work for.

The letter in part read, “Your current policy forbidding Portland law enforcement agencies from assisting employees of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency who request law enforcement assistance while at or away from work is a violation of the United States Constitution’s Equal Protection Clause.”

The incident took place in front of an ICE office building on June 30th when a mob affiliated with the domestic terrorist organization Antifa, set up a city of tents outside the office building, harassing ICE employees as they attempted to enter and exit the building. The office was eventually shut down nearly two weeks for fear of injury to the office staff.

Chris Crane, president of the national union, spoke to reporters about the incident on Monday stating, “Every person in law enforcement knows there are few things as dangerous or as unpredictable than an angry mob.”

“No one could have responded quickly enough to protect our employees who were trapped inside this building, all of this because the Mayor of Portland has a beef with the President of the United States.”

Oregon, by contrast, is perhaps even more radical than New York City when it comes to imposing restrictions on one’s civil liberties, ironically positioning themselves as a tolerant bastion of individual freedoms while imposing one mandate after another on its citizens.

As for Mayor Wheeler’s absurd handling of the Occupy ICE protesters in his city, he allowed this ragtag gang of misfits to virtually turn his city into a garbage dump. And when he finally decided to do his job as mayor, he instructed his police to take a measured approach in finally moving the protesters, which resulted into a pitched battle with the police, causing multiple injuries on both sides of the divide

Sean Riddell lead attorney for the ICE union sent a letter to the mayor stating, “We understand that you have a difference of opinion with the current President of the United States, and some of his policies, but we fail to see why targeting the employees of ICE and leaving them vulnerable to violence, harassment, and even death furthers a legitimate government interest. Your policy has created a zone of terror and lawlessness.”

The Trump Administration has forewarned mayors like Wheeler, that if they persist in their antics of protecting illegal aliens from deportation, or purposely endanger ICE agents and their employees, he will instruct the Justice Department to criminally prosecute elected officials… to the full extent-of-the-law.

  1. Exactly the same things are also taking place right across Western Europe nowadays!
    I think that the only difference is that we don’t have groups like Antifa in Europe,
    that you have in USA
    On the other hand we have plenty of extreme right wing groups like the Neo Nazis,
    unfortunately also right here where I live in Sweden!
    These are certainly strange times we are living in, it’s seems to be
    exactly the same all over the Western World right now.
    The so called ”Politicians”that we all seem to be stuck with, are probably
    equally corrupt everywhere you go to now; Europe, USA, Canada, Australia
    and so on.
    I assume that their only interested in importing illiterate thugs from
    North Africa because they want their votes and nothing else.
    Business as usual! What a sick joke the world has become!

      You are right Daniel Less, and can you imagine ICE agents calling police in Oregon and they refuse to come?

  2. Trump must do this immediately!! These so-called officials ARE criminals! If you Protect a Criminal YOU ARE a Criminal!! How is this Possible?? Elected Officials of a USA MUST follow the Law, Like it or Not! Even this I’m my opinion is Still inadequate!! If you don’t like a Law change it!!! But You Do Not Disobey the Law!!
    CRIMINALS DISOBEY AND VIOLATE THE LAW
    Those officials in Portland and EVERY official who Institude the existence of Sanctuary cities must be prosecuted to the extend of the Law!! LETS NOT FORGET THE TO ONCLUDE THE JUDGES WHO SUPPORT THESE CRIMINAL ACTIONS! YES INDEED WE HAVE JUDGES WHOSE PLACE IS IN JAIL!

  3. every last one of the police along with the mayor of portland should be fired like yesterday. sounds like they are begging for a lawless society then see how they react.

  4. Prosecute all elected officials who break the law!!!

  5. Ridiculously overblown report.

    There were no pitched battles with police.
    There was a single incident were a cop used a baton to urge protesters to move.
