Portland To Withdraw From Joint Terrorism Task Force

(Portland, OR)  --  Portland is withdrawing from the FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force.  City Councilmembers voted three-to-two yesterday in favor of a resolution withdrawing the city from the task force.  Commissioner Jo Ann Hardesty submitted the resolution and says it doesn't make sense to cooperate with the task force given Portland's status as a sanctuary and its focus on protecting civil rights.  Mayor Ted Wheeler and Commissioner Nick Fish cast the dissenting votes.  The resolution goes into effect in 90 days.
