It’s starting to look like a war-zone in Portland…. wait it already was.
Once again rioters have nothing else to do besides terrorize the city of Portland in the name of Social Justice.
This time the rioters assembled outside the ICE building where there were met by federal agents.

Our Friends at Fox News had this to say about the unlawful assembly:
Demonstrators returned to a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement building in Portland, Oregon, late Thursday for a second consecutive night and faced off with law enforcement.
Portland police declared an unlawful assembly early Friday. Police officers worked with federal agents to clear about 100 protesters that had gathered outside the ICE building, news outlets reported.
The action follows a protest Wednesday night into early Thursday morning in which protesters clashed with federal agents for the first time since July in a demonstration targeting the ICE building.
The demonstrators spray-painted windows on the building, broke several windows and shined laser lights at agents inside — prompting local police to declare the event a riot.
Police arrested two people and several officers suffered minor injuries.
Violent demonstrations have happened in Oregon’s largest city for more than two months following the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis. On Thursday police released information that showed during more than 80 nights of protests in Portland authorities declared a riot more than 17 times and arrested more than 500 people.

NBC 16 had this to say about the riot outside the ICE building:
PORTLAND, Ore. — Authorities declared a gathering of protesters outside the Immigration and Customs Enforcement building in South Portland a riot late Wednesday night.
According to Portland Police Bureau, protesters smashed windows, lit a fire, and threw rocks, bottles, and cans at officers before they left the area. They said these acts of violence led them to declare the situation a riot.
Police said demonstrators gathered in Elizabeth Caruthers Park in the 3500 block of South Moody Avenue and marched to the ICE building in the 4300 block of South Macadam Avenue at around 9:15 p.m.
At the ICE building, police say the group blocked traffic and shined lights and lasers at federal officers inside the building. They also sprayed graffiti on the outside of the building.
At around 10 p.m., police declared the gathering an unlawful assembly and told the crowd to leave the area. Police said many people chose to ignore the warnings that they could face arrest or citation if they chose to stay.
At around 10:15 p.m., police said they began dispersing the crowd and that protesters threw glass bottles and rocks at officers.
Police said the crowd used shields to resists officers’ efforts to disperse them.
Shortly after 10:30 p.m., the protesters returned to the building. Police said some people began forming barricades on the nearby streets and moved a dumpster toward the ICE building.
At this point, Portland police said federal officers came out of the ICE building and protesters began throwing rocks and glass bottles at them. Police said the rocks were the size of softballs and some officers were hit. Portland police said they began dispersing the crowd again and were hit by full cans of soda. One officer reported they were hit by a hammer.
This caused police to declare the riot.
Police said people at first moved away from the ICE building, but then they lit a fire at South Gaines Street and South Bond Avenue and marched back toward the building. Once back at the ICE building, police said protesters began breaking windows.
Police said they continued trying to disperse the crowd until 1:30 a.m.
The democratic leaders of Portland have allowed their city to be taken hostage by domestic terrorism.
Will this ever end?
