Rashida Tlaib Says Feds Will Have To Arrest Her First If They Try To Restore Order In Detroit

Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib ratcheted up her feud with President Trump and Attorney General Bill Barr yesterday over Trump’s warning he will send the Feds to stop the violence in failed Dem cities.

She said she will not allow Barr to restore order and promised to get arrested before she lets it happen.

She has no power to stop it and if she follows through on her threat she will be arrested. “They’ll have to arrest me first if they think they’re going to illegally lay their hands on my residents,” posted Tlaib on Twitter.


From Fox News:

The Chicago Tribune on Monday reported that the DHS has a plan to send 150 Homeland Security Investigations, or HSI, agents to the city to aid local law enforcement in combatting violent crime.

“DHS does not comment on any allegedly leaked operations,” a department spokesperson said in a statement, when asked by Fox News about the report.

The DHS has not released any details of the plan so far, but city officials and federal law enforcement agents questioned by the newspaper confirmed the deployment, though could not offer any details as to what the HSI agents would be doing or whose command they would come under.

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot said that she is concerned about the possibility of Trump sending federal agents to her city given the controversy surrounding the crackdown on unrest in Portland.

“We don’t need federal agents without any insignia taking people off the streets and holding them, I think, unlawfully,” Lightfoot said, according to the Tribune.

The administration has enlisted federal agents, including the U.S. Marshals Special Operations Group and an elite U.S. Customs and Border Protection team based on the U.S.-Mexico border, to protect federal property in the Oregon city.

But Oregon Public Broadcasting reported last week that some agents had been driving around in unmarked vans and snatching protesters from streets not near federal property, without identifying themselves. The reports led Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum on Friday to sue Homeland Security and the Marshals Service in federal court.

The complaint says that unidentified federal agents have grabbed people off Portland’s streets “without warning or explanation, without a warrant, and without providing any way to determine who is directing this action.”

In a statement, DHS insisted that agents are identifying themselves as Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) agents. But they admitted agents were not wearing name tags — citing recent doxing incidents against law enforcement.
