Portland Police Chief Bans ICE From Using Police Training Facility

"The use of PPB's training facility by other law enforcement agencies should be consistent with City values," she said.

Portland, OR – The Portland Police Bureau (PPB) has banned U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers from using the city’s law enforcement training facility.

"The use of PPB's training facility by other law enforcement agencies should be consistent with City values," Portland Police Chief Danielle Outlaw said in a press release.

The PPB had signed a two-year contract with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) December of 2018, which allowed agents from ICE and Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) to lease and utilize the city’s Training Division facility.

The facility includes two firearms ranges, a vehicle operations area, classroom space, and a scenario village training area.

But on Sept. 16, the police bureau was alerted that there was a potential conflict between “city values” and ICE being allowed to lease the facility, according to the PPB press release.

Outside agencies wanting to use the space must “be consistent with the City’s values and Federal State, and local laws,” to include a city resolution that vows to “prohibit the use of City funds, personnel or equipment to enforce federal immigration law,” the PPB said.

The PPB canceled the contract with ICE on Sept. 19, following an internal review.

Because it does not “enforce immigration laws,” HSI will still be allowed to utilize the facility, the department said.

"A mistake was made due to miscommunication during the contract approval process,” Chief Outlaw said in the release.” When the oversight was brought to our attention, we took immediate action.”

The department has already implemented a new process for future contracts “which ensures proper oversight, review, and approval of contracts,” the chief added.

Portland City Commissioner JoAnn Hardesty’s office praised the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) for having alerted the police bureau that ICE shouldn’t be allowed to use the city’s training facility.

The DSA is an openly radical anti-police group that was part of the “Occupy ICE” protests, and aims to “end all ICE activities” in Portland, The Oregonian reported.

"We greatly appreciate the work of DSA to help terminate the contract with ICE’s Enforcement and Removal Operations,'' Hardesty’s community outreach coordinator, Matt McNally, said in a letter to the DSA, according to The Oregonian.

"Without you bringing it to our attention, it could have very well gone unnoticed,” McNally wrote. “Our office believes that in no case should a sanctuary city be receiving funding from organizations as diametrically opposed to the values of sanctuary, such as ICE’s Enforcement and Removal Operations. Thanks to your organization’s work, we can now say that Portland will not be.''

The DSA said that getting ICE kicked out of the Portland police training center was “a small victory in a much larger battle,” according to The Oregonian.

The Democrats constantly state, "no one should be above the law," when referring to Trump, who has not done anything unlawful, as far as anyone can tell.

But if you ask them about other Democrats, or millions of illegal aliens, they will quickly change their tune.

As one born in Portland ... I can only say that this cop has no brains and Portland has no values. Infact, the Clackamas County Sherrifs Office and the Washington County Sheriffs Office disregards any and all 911 calls from Portland unless it is an officer down !

Crap like this is why I don't go to Portland. I live close by, but I avoid it like the plague. Nasty disgusting place, where no one is safe because the city does not want deal with ANTIFA or the homeless or anything elese for that matter.

The function of ICE is rather clearly spelled out in it's name... wonder what the 'misunderstanding' consisted of? DSA got a nice endorsement out of it, though.

It’s not the citizens of Portland’s responsibility to train ICE and let them use their facilities.

Ice should double down on those cities. Go in there and start deporting like no one has ever seen before. Then cut off ALL federal funding for the sanctuary city.

The chief said "Portland was just not shitty enough so we did this make it an even bigger shit hole"... I'm sure there were no more qualified white men in consideration when she was made chief right?!

Maybe ICE should set up tents and shanties all over Portland property, the city won't do anything... "consistent with city values" !!

Portland doesn't have any city values! Notice how many of all the new police chiefs seem to be anti-police and anti-government? Subversives place them in power and they then kneel at the feet of the scumbag politicians who are out to destroy America.

Excuse me but if federal funds were used in any way to support the development of the training facility this dumb duck needs to sit down and shut up.

It’s hard for me to believe this is America. I did 20 years in Federal LE. I would immediately discontinue any federal aid and refuse to assist with any federal MOU’s.

Well then I see no reason for any United States Fedral Tax Money to be issued to the communist state of oregon or the city of poorland. As they said in their statement federal agents of ICE can not use a Grant funded / federal money.... I see a peelousy, frakenstien, waters, tent cities coming to portland. All real law enforcement will cease when they figure out how they are expendable to the communistic chief and city thieves.

It makes sense if you don't want to come to this city. If you don't understand having values and acting on them consistently, you won't understand this action. Feel free to stay somewhere else.

Google her bio. She came from the shithole known as Oakland, went to school in the liberal cesspool of San Fran, and is now in charge of a city that sits on the main drug trafficking route from Mexico to Canada. The left coast is beyond saving at this point.

I say cut all Federal funds to Portland, pull out all HS, let them sink in the shithole they are creating. It won't be long before they, like the idiot Governor from New Mexico that will be crying and begging for help. She is a DISGRACE TO ALL LAW ENFORCEMENT.... KICK HER OUT.

One can only hope that the Federal Government will change it's rules to say that Federal Funds will only go to Cities that are not consistent with the Federal Governments Values and Laws.
