The acting head of the Customs and Border Protection agency says the Portland Autonomous Region is being taken over by criminals, not protesters
Acting Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Mark Morgan said on Thursday that protesters in Portland, Oregon, who had set up their own autonomous district by setting up tents and rebuilding barriers were criminals.

These are the individuals who plan and organize premeditated destruction of federal property and harming federal officers and agents, "Morgan told" Fox & Friends. "

Morgan noted that the Portland protesters were bringing stones, hammers and nails in plywood to intentionally hurt.

Morgan said: "These are criminals, and they are not demonstrators."

Portland protesters began setting up tents in a park near the Federal Court early on Wednesday, and separate streets to create their own autonomous region, similar to the occupation that has since been organized on the organized Capitol Hill in Seattle.

The protesters began pitching tents in downtown Portland on Lonsdale Square, across the street from the Pioneer Federal Court, one of the federal properties that Internal Security sought to protect by bringing federal officers to the city two weeks ago.

A camera at the Portland Standard Building showed that protesters began gathering tents late Tuesday evening in the same park where "Occupy Portland" was built in 2011, Kato said.

Morgan said that the Trump administration supports law enforcement at the local, state and federal levels.

He said that the Ministry of Justice will participate in this, and the Ministry of National Security will participate in this, and we are already taking a comprehensive stance. "We will do what should be to protect men and women in this country." "
