PPB Chief: "We Don't Enforce Immigration Laws"

(Portland, OR)  --  Portland Police Chief Mike Marshman says he's asking his officers to be a "source of reassurance to the community," following President Donald Trump's temporary travel ban on people from seven Muslim-majority countries.  Marshman says Oregon law states that the Police Bureau is prohibited from using its own equipment or personnel for the purpose of detecting or apprehending people who violate federal immigration law.  The police chief says he's advised officers to reach out to people, answer questions, and provide clarity on their role relating to immigration enforcement.
