Federal officers in green camouflage stand guard Thursday, July 16 against protesters near the U.S. Courthouse in downtown Portland. The same night the federal police force deployed tear gas and fired less-lethal rounds into a crowd of protesters just hours after President Trump’s head of the Department of Homeland Security echoed Trump by calling the protesters “violent anarchists.” (Beth Nakamura/The Oregonian via AP)
