Friday, Jul 24, 2020

VOA (Voice of America) News interviewed Omar Wasow for an examination of the controversial use of federal agents from the Department of Homeland Security in Portland, just as Trump's federal action sends more federal agents into other cities: Trump Sending Federal Agents to More Cities to Fight Violence.

Whether or not it's legal, it's highly controversial, and it's being fought in the courts on a range of fronts and being condemned by prominent Republicans.

Omar Wasow is an assistant professor in the politics department at Princeton University, and CSDP faculty associate. He also co-founded BlackPlanet.com and the Brooklyn Excelsior Charter School.
