An open letter to the U.S. Congress

Stop DHS from arresting Americans at the hands of unidentified federal agents

8 so far! Let’s get to 10 signers!

DHS is sending unidentifiable federal agents to arrest Americans in Portland OR and must be stopped. It is extremely concerning to learn that Federal agents in green camouflage uniforms without any identification have been taking people into custody off the streets of Portland into unmarked vehicles. They were sent to protect federal property but these arrests are taking place away from there. This is unconstitutional, a gross violation of civil liberties not to mention human rights. The United States of America is a democratic republic, not an authoritarian regime and we cannot have the likes of the gestapo or SS arresting Americans this way. This is a blatant abuse of power by the federal government in the midst of a crippling pandemic and federal resources need to be used to fight Covid-19, not citizens expressing their rights to peacefully protest. The Department of Homeland Security needs be put in check and something must to be done to ensure this won’t keep happening in Portland nor any other American city or community.
