In Portland, the court refused to prohibit detentions by Federal security forces

In the United States court refused to impose a temporary ban on the holding of the Federal law enforcement agencies of arrests during the protests in Portland, who was made attorney General of Oregon, said in a court document.

Earlier it was reported that the attorney General of Oregon, Ellen Rosenblum wants to achieve a temporary ban on police detentions, arguing that those held for no apparent reason. It was noted that the defendants are the Department of homeland security, U.S. marshals, Customs and border protection service and the Federal security service of the United States.

"The petition of the plaintiff for an interim injunction rejected," - the document says.

According to judge Michael Mosman, the decision was made due to the lack of a state right of action on this issue.

In Portland and other US cities for more than a month have been protests, often degenerating into riots, which began after the death in Minneapolis of the African-American George Floyd at the hands of police. The US President Donald trump has repeatedly expressed dissatisfaction with the actions of the authorities of States and municipalities that, in his opinion, do not take the necessary measures to restore order. In this regard, in some cases, the city introduced the military and Federal police, which caused discontent among the local authorities, which are predominantly Democratic party of the United States.
