Over the objection of the city-police chief and mayor, Portland, Oregon, is elected to the city Council on Wednesday narrowly to stop together with the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF), citing alleged surveillance of the left activists and argues that the partnership between local authorities and the Federal authorities, was ultimately ineffective.

Law enforcement officials said a similar decision by San Francisco officials in 2017 had to be a danger to the public, and that the New York police Department membership in the JTTF had helped foil numerous terrorists, including would-be Times Square bomber Faisal Shahzad.

Portland, said officials according to the strong left-wing city, whose mayor, he “can’t wait” to leave office, has a rocky relationship with the JTTF. The city’s partnership in the 1990s, to the left occurred shortly after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks and signed back up in 2015.


The last split of the JTTF was a narrow, to leave with mayor Ted Wheeler-who murmured in the last year that he “can’t wait”, his job and the other Commissioner, voicing support for the law enforcement authorities of the coalition. Portland is ironically said the name police chief Danielle Outlaw, that the partnership benefited both of thet city and the FBI, and repeatedly tried to play down fears that the local authorities would share immigration information with the JTTF.

Nick fish, Commissioner, voted to retain the JTTF arrangement, said the resignation was counter-productive.

“The FBI will continue to do this work without our participation,” said Fish. “I’d rather have our values in the table. Why would we walk and you lose the opportunity to us for supervision of their work?”

But other officials in the city, the guide took a dimmer view of the FBI’s role in the city, and the city Council killed the partnership by a 3-2 vote. The move will take effect within 60 days, though several other local law enforcement agencies to remain in partnership with the JTTF.
