(AbsoluteNews.com) – Riots have persisted in Oregon for months now. Meanwhile, the Democratic governor has done almost nothing to rein in rioters. Now, the violent agitators are interfering with the federal government’s work to keep America safe.
On August 12, hundreds of protesters blocked ICE buses for hours in Bend, Oregon. The police department tweeted that Chief Mike Krantz was aware federal agents were conducting an investigation in the city, but didn’t have any details.
Chief Krantz Statement:
Yesterday and today the Bend Police were made aware that ICE agents were in Bend for an investigation, however we were not made aware of their detailed plans.

Activists apparently saw arrests take place and then decided to get involved. Two of the protesters were later arrested. Acting Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Deputy Secretary Ken Cuccinelli condemned the agitators for “illegally interfering” with law enforcement.

Trying to prevent ICE from carrying out its duties to protect America from dangerous obstructionists is deplorable. Democratic leaders need to get it together and step up. This can’t be allowed to continue.
You Deserve the Absolute Truth!
