Local authorities in Portland, Oregon came under fire from the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency this week; reportedly ignoring multiple emergency phone calls from ICE agents as violent protests swirled outside their offices.
According to the Daily Caller, the union representing ICE agents filed a formal complaint against Mayor Ted Wheeler, demanding the local leader instruct his police department to “equally enforce the law.”
“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,” said the letter from the National Immigration and Customs Enforcement Council.
“No one could have responded quickly enough to protect our employees who were trapped inside this building. All of this because the Mayor of Portland has a beef with the president of the United States,” added union president Chris Crane.
“We ask that you end your policy of not responding to calls for police services from ICE employees immediately,” adds the letter. “We would like to avoid federal litigation, but we are prepared to protect our membership and their families.”
