21 JULY 2020

Chicago won't see 'Portland-style deployment' of federal agents, Mayor Lori Lightfoot says  


CHICAGO – The mayor of Chicago said Tuesday that the Trump administration would not be deploying unnamed federal officers to the city, as seen in Portland in recent days.

"What I understand at this point, and I caveat that, is that the Trump administration is not going to foolishly deploy unnamed agents to the streets of Chicago," Mayor Lori Lightfoot said Tuesday. "We have information that allows us to say, at least at this point, that we don’t see a Portland-style deployment coming to Chicago."

Lightfoot said the administration is instead sending agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigations, Drug Enforcement Administration, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

"Unlike what happened in Portland, what we will receive is resources that are going to plug in to the existing federal agencies that we work with on a regular basis to help manage and suppress violent crime," she said. "I've been very clear that we welcome actual partnership, but we do not welcome dictatorship." Source
