Customs and Border Patrol Commissioner Mark Morgan slammed Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler and the city’s government failure to secure the Hatfield Federal Courthouse from left-wing criminal rioters, when speaking to FOX News on two occasions this week.
Morgan strongly rejected Wheeler’s demands that federal personnel leave the city of Portland, pointing out the criminal threat directed towards the courthouse on a nightly basis.
“That’s not going to happen — and that’s what this is about. It’s not about all of the political talking points. It’s straightforward. It’s about law and order. It’s about criminals that are attacking a federal facility and have attempted night after night to burn it to the ground and they have assaulted federal agents night after night after night,” said Morgan.
Wheeler continues to blame federal law enforcement for the criminal conduct of rioters targeting the courthouse, even as the neoliberal mayor was brutally abused and mocked by the so-called protestors himself when he joined them for a night of riots at the courthouse.

Morgan was even more blunt about Wheeler’s failure of leadership when following up on his remarks on Thursday.
“That’s not a leader; that’s a ten-year old,” said the CBP chief of Wheeler.
President Donald Trump also called out Wheeler’s irresponsibility during an interview with Sean Hannity on Thursday. “Mayor Wheeler. And he’s—he made a fool out of himself. He wanted to be among the people, so he went into the crowd, and they knocked the hell out of him. That was the end of him. So it was pretty pathetic.”
