The Ohio Representative is demanding Attorney General Merrick B. Garland and Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas’answer as to how iden administration is enforcing federal law in Portland, Oregon.

He is obviously would like to know as to why they have been overcharging people who were in Washington on January 6th, while totally ignoring antifa rioting and the destruction of federal property, and attacks on federal officials.

Jim Jordan, Republican Ohio Representative cited journalist Andy Ngo’s February 2021 testimony in front of the Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security in both letters. He noted that Ngo testified about “antifa and left-wing anarchists” developing “a riot apparatus that included streams of funding for accommodation, travel, riot gear, and weapons, which resulted in a murder, hundreds of arson attacks, mass injuries, and mass property destruction.”

Ohio lawmaker requested an explanation on what the DHS or the Federal Protective Service (FPS) is doing “to protect federal personnel and federal property” in the city. The letter also looking for explanation on what is being done to prevent further destruction to federal property as well as whether the DHS “still believes that it has the authority, the mission, and the intent to enforce federal law and protect federal property in Portland.”

Portland courthouse has been the target of many attacks on federal property, including bricks, rocks, and attacks with laser pointers that have left federal authorities blinded at least temporarily. However, there seems to be no action taken against the rioters. Jordan wants to know why since President Trump left office. In Portland, antifa rioted for over 100 days in a row but the riot in Washington lasted just three hours.

The reinstall fencing around the Mark O. Hatfield United States Courthouse was forced by the DHS after it was removed it due to attacks on the building.

Once the fence was removed the attacks started up again. The city of Portland tried to force Trump to remove the fencing but he refused even after Portland tried to levy fines against the federal government.
