Customs and Border Patrol official Mark Morgan confirmed that the thus-unnamed rioter had been arrested on Sunday morning not only with pipe bomb paraphernalia, but a machete and a knife
Morgan staunchly rejected any description of Portland’s criminal rioters as protestors, making it clear that the riotous thugs had no right to attack federal law enforcement and terrorize the community. The rioters staged a siege of the Hatfield Federal Courthouse in Portland, vandalizing the federal building and coating it with graffiti.
Portland ANTIFA has staged some of the most vicious criminal riots and political terrorism in the country, having rioted in the city’s streets for what some officials have claimed to be 38 straight days. Reporter Andy Ngo has documented the terrorist group’s crimes, exposing them deploying laser devices in the direction of a police headquarters building to blind law enforcement.
Last night, violent protesters used lasers on police officers guarding the Justice Center in Portland while also pelting them with rocks, glass bottles, water balloons filled with paint, fireworks and more. #antifa #BlackLivesMatter #portlandriots pic.twitter.com/AX9Cc2eFL0

“We are doing disservice to peaceful lawful protestors when we call these individuals protestors. They’re not. They’re criminal thugs with an agenda.”
Rioting in downtown Portland by antifa. They came fully equipped with shields and explosive fireworks. Federal police (not @PortlandPolice) have used CS gas to forcibly disperse them. It’s working and antifa hate it. pic.twitter.com/MA8f3BRLzO
