In Portland, Oregon, federal agents fired tear gas at protesters Wednesday as hundreds of Black Lives Matter demonstrators rallied for a 63rd consecutive night outside a downtown federal courthouse. The crackdown came just hours after Oregon Governor Kate Brown said she’s reached a deal with the Trump administration to have federal agents withdraw from Portland, calling them “an occupying force.” Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf disputed her claim, saying the agents would only pull out once federal property is secure.
