On July 27, the U.S. President Donald Trump ordered to send 100 more federal officials to Portland to contain the protests, which have left more than 70 people under arrest.
Mayor Ted Wheeler reported that he was negotiating a ceasefire with the Homeland Security Department after federal agents cracked down on the citizens' rallies.
He stressed that the presence of federal troops was sharply escalating the situation and leading to more violence.
Here is the footage I got last night of Noelle Mandolfo being arrested, held down by several agents and repeatedly saying she can’t breathe and asking why she was being detained. Shortly after this I was arrested too while recording. #portlandprotests 1/2 pic.twitter.com/DRgifpqHDE
