Oregon Governor Announces Federal Officers Leaving, but DHS Disagrees

AllSides Summary

Oregon Gov. Kate Brown (D) announced Wednesday that she and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) agreed to a "phased withdrawal" of federal officers deployed to the city of Portland. This announcement specifically mentioned that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) officers would be leaving. However, DHS Secretary Chad Wolf indicated Wednesday in a tweet that federal officers would not be leaving the city "until the violent activity toward our federal facilities ends." Left- and center-rated outlets were more likely to mention Wolf's call with reporters that seemed to contradict details of the agreement described by Brown. Right-rated outlets were more likely to focus on Brown's party affiliation and the purported criminal violence happening in Portland.
