    An art gallery in Portland, Oregon, removed a window drawing that depicts President Donald Trump being beheaded ISIS style. The horrific image shows a man whose face is concealed holding Trump’s head with one hand. In the other hand, he is holding a knife to the throat of Trump, who is bleeding profusely from his nose as well as his slashed neck. The image has the words ‘F*** TRUMP’ underneath it. The cartoon Trump is seen wearing a pin of a burning American flag on his lapel. The founder of One Grand Gallery in the Northwest city told KPTV-TV that...

    An art gallery in Portland, Oregon, has removed a graphic window illustration of President Trump being threatened with a bloody knife at his throat after an angry outcry. The One Grand Gallery took down the image entitled “F*** Trump” Tuesday in response to complaints, threats and a request from the landlord, as reported by Fox12. “The same people offended over a ‘death threat’ are the same people upholding death threats & violence. Irony,” said the gallery in a Tuesday post on Facebook.
  • 8 arrested in demonstration outside ICE facility in Portland

    Eight protesters were arrested Wednesday morning as they blocked a van from leaving a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement facility in Southwest Portland. A video shows a band of protesters linked at the arms, blocking the van from exiting the facility. It also shows several of them being detained by federal officers, who deployed pepper balls at close range, as well as pepper spray. One detained protester ran away, but the video appears to show authorities leading that protester back to the scene. Robert Sperling, a Federal Protective Service spokesman, said officers went after that protester but didn't know whether...

    An Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) facility in Portland, Ore., that was shut down by protestors last week will resume operations on Tuesday. “The ICE office on Macadam Avenue is operating on a modified status Monday,” ICE spokesman Carissa Cutrell said in a statement to The Hill. “Normal operations will resume Tuesday.” Organizers of the Portland protest did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Protesters faced off with Department of Homeland Security officers on Thursday, and several demonstrators were removed by force. The “Occupy ICE” protest in Portland was one of many that took place across the country...

    Dozens of protesters marched through the streets of Portland, Oregon, on Sunday, demanding action after Portland State University police shot and killed a Navy veteran. Cellphone video captured the early Friday incident when, witnesses say, Jason Washington was trying to break up a fight. It appears Washington's gun fell from its holster before police shot him. This isn't the first time tensions have risen at the university over armed campus safety officers. Students have been strongly opposed since the policy began in 2015. One protester said she feared that it was only a matter of time before someone got killed....

    A “freedom rally” in Portland, Ore., coordinated by the right-wing group Patriot Prayer was cut short Saturday after some of its supporters clashed with anti-fascist (antifa) counter-protesters. The event began without incident until after 6 p.m., when members of Patriot Prayer took to the streets following their gathering in Portland's Terry Schrunk Federal Plaza, the Oregonian reported. Patriot Prayer's organizer is Joey Gibson, a U.S. Senate candidate in Washington state, the newspaper reported, adding that the group is based in Vancouver, Wash., located just across the Columbia River from Portland. Tensions escalated as the two groups heckled each other, the...

    PORTLAND, Ore. -- Federal officers in riot gear moved into the protest siege of ICE headquarters in Southwest Portland at 5:30 a.m. Thursday. "At approximately 5:30 a.m. today, federal law enforcement officers initiated a law enforcement action to reopen the federal facility at 4310 SW Macadam Avenue in Portland," Federal Protective Service spokesman Robert Sperling said in a prepared statement. Officers were clearing the entrance to the building but taking no action against a large number of protesters who have set up a camp along the building.

    Federal authorities warned Antifa members Monday to stop occupying an Oregon Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) building or be arrested. “Individuals who continue to obstruct the entrance of this federal facility will be subject to arrest and prosecution in federal court,” a flyer Federal Protective Service agents distributed to Portland, Oregon, Antifa members reads. “It is unlawful under federal law to obstruct the entrances, foyers, lobbies, corridors, offices and/or parking lots of federal facilities.” Antifa has been camping outside the ICE building since last week and effectively shutting down the building. Federal authorities went into the building around 3:30 a.m...

    The occupation of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement headquarters on the South Waterfront has over six days expanded from a scattering of chairs to a village of more than 80 tents, four portable toilets, six couches, a commissary and a medic's office. The protest now closely resembles the Occupy Portland camps that seized two downtown parks in 2011. Once again, a Portland mayor has sanctioned the takeover—but this time, the target is a federal agency, and the goal is to directly impede its work. Mayor Ted Wheeler has pledged to not intervene with Occupy ICE, saying he considers...

Deportation officers will contact individuals to reschedule appointments. "Normal operations will resume once security concerns have been addressed," she said. On Wednesday, Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler said he drove by the protests and commended participants on what he said was a peaceful demonstration against an agency "that...

    Unless you have been living under a rock for the past few years, you know just how intense political divisions have become. In recent years, we’ve seen neo-Nazi marches, feminist marches, Antifa riots, anti-gun rallies and countless other protests and demonstrations. Unfortunately, violence has often accompanied these political gatherings. Moods have been hostile all over the US, but the west coast seems to be descending into chaos faster than the rest of the country. Two years ago, 7 people were stabbed in Sacramento during a clash between Antifa and white nationalists. Last year, Berkeley broke out in a massive riot...

    Four people were arrested Sunday after peaceful rallies in Oregon turned violent as Antifa protesters clashed with a Patriot Prayer rally, triggering bloody fights in the streets. Patriot Prayer, which describes itself as a peaceful First Amendment advocacy group, organized “Tiny’s Freedom March” in Portland as a going-away event for Tusitala “Tiny” Toese, who is close with group leader Joey Gibson. Meanwhile, Rose City Antifa scheduled a counter-protest “to show Patriot Prayer, just as we showed them last year, that their violence and hatred has no place in Portland.” Portland police started to warn the crowds at Terry Schrunk Plaza...

    PORTLAND, Ore. — Two employees of a bakery in Portland, Oregon were fired earlier this month for denying a black woman service because the business had closed. "Back To Eden Bakery" released several public apologies and statements following the incident, before letting the employees go. In one Facebook post, the bakery's co-owner wrote, "We are doing business in a gentrified neighborhood in a racist city within a racist state of a racist country.” In one statement, "Back To Eden Bakery" says that according to its own surveillance video, a black woman named "Lillian", who is well known in the area...

    An Oregon business has filed a complaint against a church that prohibited it from hosting an LGBT event in a building owned by the church, claiming that the fallout from that decision has harmed the company. In 2015, Ambridge Event Center, which once rented out a space owned by Holy Rosary Church for various events, was compelled to reject an LGBT group's request to hold an event on the property due to the church's "morals clause." In a lawsuit filed last week in Multnomah County Circuit Court in Oregon, Ambridge alleged that the church's rules against them hosting the LGBT...

The incident occurred in early May and is now circulating in the news, garnering a strong public response on Facebook and social media. A woman named only as “Lillian” entered the bakery at 9:06 p.m....
