    "PORTLAND POLICE REFUSED TO HELP ICE AGENTS WHO CALLED 911, AGENTS SAY

    Portland, Oregon, police refused to respond to at least two 911 emergency calls from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) employees inside their offices where violent protesters held week-long demonstrations.

    The National Immigration and Customs Enforcement Council, a union representing ICE employees, wrote a cease-and-desist letter to Mayor Ted Wheeler, asking him to ensure the police enforce the law equally and protect innocent people.

    “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 letter says.

    The federal governement needs to end funding to ALL of these so-called "sanctuary cities" , PERIOD.

    If they want to harbor illegals, maybe they can "get Mexico to pay for it"......

    Portland Police were ordered by their dooshbag Mayor to stand down.
    Blame lands squarely on the wimpy shoulders of Ted Wheeler.
    The Chief told Dooshbag Ted what the Department thought about his policies.
    In the end, the Department cleaned up Wheeler's mess just like they wanted to do at the front end of the bullschitt protest.

    Can someone explain why these cities or city officials aren't be prosecuted for breaking federal law? This is mind boggling.

    Obama's Injustice Dept. sued Arizona for trying to enforce the immigration laws, but nothing can be done for breaking them?

    Portland has the right to have their police not assist ICE with enforcing Federal immigration law. I don't agree with the policy, but they can do it. What they cannot do is refuse to dispatch officers to a scene where a crime may be occurring in their jurisdiction and citizens feel threatened. Those federal agents were not asking for state assistance enforcing federal law, so the choice to not dispatch was absolutely in the wrong.

    I hope the Mayor goes down in flames for it, however sadly I'm sure that is nothing more than wishful thinking.

    This.....I could only imagine what would happen if a private citizen dialed 911 to report they were robbed and the police refused to dispatch patrol units because the Mayor doesn't like what you do for a living.

    IIRC the police have no legal obligation to protect any individual. Remember the ways the rules are set up. The .gov can always find you guilty of something. They on the other hand can use your tax money to hire the best lawyers to protect themselves.

    This is exactly what the Confederacy tried to do, nullify Federal law.

    Right the Supreme Court ruled that Law Enforement Officers are not required to “protect”.

    With that in mind, what’s the purpose of the 911 emergency system?

    Should have dialed 911, asked for assistance and told the dispatcher that you were armed and afraid for your life, they would have sent any army.

    President Trump should (very publicly) order Jeff Sessions to step in here. Start up the chain of command charging every LEO involved until the genesis of the stand down order is revealed as publicly as possible.

    Typical. Many big city Dept.,s by Dept. orders aren't allowed to cooperate with ICE. Don't blame the cops, blame the mutts the people elect.
