A federal judge ruled that federal agents in Portland, Oregon do not have to identify themselves while making arrests.

Law enforcement officers usually have to identify themselves before making arrests or serving warrants, but it is not the case for federal police who typically deal with terrorist groups and mass unrest.

On Friday, U.S. District Judge Michael Mosman ruled that Oregon state Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum did not have enough standing to sue the federal government.

Rosenblum sued the Trump administration alleging the federal agents violated protester’s and rioter’s constitutional rights.

But Osman ruled Rosenblum failed to articulate a state interest beyond those constitutional rights, as PJ Media reported.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is set to introduce a new bill requiring federal law enforcement officials to identify themselves.

Last week, Progressive Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) was set to introduce a new bill requiring federal law enforcement officials to identify themselves.

The bill, also headed by District of Columbia Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton (D), would force all on-duty agents to display their agency name, last name, and their identification number.

AOC's new bill would essentially mean federal police would need to identify themselves to terrorist suspects before making arrests.

Meanwhile, Rosenblum’s lawsuit is one of many being brought against the rump administration by liberal states who have allowed rioters to destroy the city, including buildings, monuments, and businesses.

U.S. District Judge Michael Simon ruled on Thursday in favor of restricting what federal officers can and can’t do to journalists and legal observers in Portland.

The ruling also banned federal agents from arresting journalists and observers unless they had probable cause of a crime.

“Without journalists and legal observers, there is only the government’s side of the story to explain why a ‘riot’ was declared and the public streets were ‘closed’ and whether law enforcement acted properly in effectuating that order,” Simon wrote, according to Buzzfeed.

On Thursday, President Donald Trump warned that his administration is preparing thousands of armed federal agents to be deployed to the streets of Democrat-run cities who are refusing to tackle the recent violent crime surge.

Speaking with Sean Hannity on Fox News Thursday night, President Trump said that the administration will be forced to do “something that’s much stronger” to end the soaring violence in multiple Democrat-controlled cities.

The president signaled that he has tens of thousands of federal agents ready to be deployed to quell the violence.
