Feds Attempt To Intervene After Weeks Of Violent Protests In Portland

After saying he believes that federal officers have done "a great job" to calm protests in Portland, Oregon, President Trump is considering sending more officers to cities across the U.S.

In a memo obtained by CBS News, the Trump administration is considering sending 175 additional federal officers to Chicago, Alberquerque, New Mexico and Kansas City, Missouri.

Oregon lawmakers disagree with the President's praise of federal agents in Portland, creating a bill to block Trump from, what Senator Jeff Merkley calls, "deploying federal forces as a shadowy paramilitary against Americans."

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot said Monday that she "has concerns" about federal officers arriving in her city. "We don't need federal agents, without any insignia, taking people off the street and holding them unlawfully."
