Ngô was undercover, reporting on the most recent riots in Portland, Oregon Friday, when some rioters approached him. “I think what gave it away though was they paid attention to the fact that I wasn’t engaging in criminal activities,” Ngô said. According to him, they snatched his mask, recognized him and shouted: “That’s him! Get him! Get him!”
Next, “I was chased, attacked and beaten by a masked mob, baying for my blood,” the journalist said. Luckily, he found shelter in a nearby hotel, and eventually was treated by EMTs who arrived at the scene. Meanwhile, rioters banged on the doors to the hotel. The last time Ngô came under a violent attack was in April of this year, while he covered a similar riot in Portland. In 2019, he was beaten so badly while covering ANTIFA that he suffered brain hemmorrages.
“Antifa wants me dead because I document what they want to stay hidden,” Ngô tweeted. “The attacks against me and threats on my life are retribution for my work as a journalist . . . But it is the right of every journalist, protected and preserved by the founding fathers, to report freely without fear.”
Later, police only arrested one of Ngô’s many attackers from that night. The man was charged with felony unlawful use of a weapon, felony attempted assault, felony riot and other crimes. But, “His bail was immediately covered by an Antifa bail fund group,” Ngô tweeted.

Trump, Rep Biggs: invoking the Alien Enemies Act to enable widespread deportation will ‘be necessary’
At a recent rally in Iowa, former President Donald Trump promised that if elected again in 2024, he would invoke the Alien Enemies Act to enable widespread deportation of migrants who have illegally entered the United States. Since President Joe Biden took office in January of 2021, over 6 million people have illegally entered the country.
Republican Representative Andy Biggs from border state Arizona, which is among the states suffering the greatest consequences from the Biden administration policies, lamented that Trump’s suggestion will be “necessary.”
Speaking on the “Just the News, No Noise” television show, Biggs stated “[I]t’s actually gonna have to be necessary.” Biggs then added his thoughts on how many more people will continue to cross the border under Biden: “Because by the time Trump gets back in office, you will have had over 10 million, in my opinion, over 10 million illegal aliens cross our border and come into the country, under the Biden regime.”
“And so when you start deporting people, and removing them from this country, what that does is that disincentivizes the tens of thousands of people who are coming,” Biggs went on. “And by the way, everyday down in Darién Gap, which is in Panama… over 5,000 people a day. [I] talk[ed] to one of my sources from the gap today. And I will just tell you, those people that you’ve seen come come in to Eagle Pass, over 7,000 in a three day period, most of those two weeks ago, were down crossing into the Darién Gap.”
“And those people… make their way up and they end up in the Eagle Pass [Texas], Del Rio area,” he continued. “So if you want to disincentivize them, you remove them from the country, which is why they remain in Mexico policy was so doggone effective at slowing down illegal border crossings.”
