Trump sends heavily-armed agents to Chicago

Chicago, United States of America Current Affairs July 21 @ 4:10am

This could get ugly: You may have seen all the violent clashes in recent days in Portland, Oregon, involving demonstrators and federal agents sent in by President Trump from the Department of Homeland Security.
Now.. on Trump's orders .. about 150 of them are heading to Chicago.
These agents are dressed in camouflage (as if in war), without badges or anything that identifies them, and they've been hauling people away in unmarked vehicles. Civil rights advocates are horrified, and the mayor of Chicago is furious.
There are almost daily marches in the streets of Chicago lately -- there was a violent police clash last Friday over the removal of a Christopher Columbus statue -- so there are big fears the arrival of these agents will inflame -- rather than quell -- the "hot" situation.
