After a rise in homicides and violent crime, Portland mayor Ted Wheeler is looking to refund the police in his city.

Wheeler requested $2 million in funding for the police force and other agencies. Members of the city council have not signaled commitment to the proposal.

The news comes after Antifa set fire to a Portland courthouse Thursday night with people inside. At least one person was arrested.

The call for more funding came Wheeler’s state of the city address Friday. It was three days after a man was murdered in broad daylight in a Portland park and city officials began scrambling to find ways to rectify the crisis.

“This shooting was brazen and horrific,” Wheeler tweeted. “The City and its partners are working hard to prevent and reduce gun violence. It’s a public health crisis that’s harming our entire community.”

Wheeler discussed the need for more funding in a Thursday press conference — namely that the city needs a gun violence detective unit. The mayor said it would be different from past policing units.

“What’s going to be different this time, and Chief Lovell said it very clearly, they believe we need a prevention and intervention function, but he also made it clear that he would not stand that up unless the community supported it, unless there was community oversight, and unless there was the transparent collection and dissemination of data,” Wheeler said.

Whether the city council will back Wheeler in proving an additional $2 million to the police has yet to be seen.

Sara welcomes investigative reporter, author, and podcast host Peter Schweizer to discuss the FBI’s raid of President Trump’s home in Florida and what the stunning contrast with the bureau’s handling of the Hillary Clinton case says about the massive double standard in our justice system. Schweizer also dissects how China enriches elites from the U.S. and beyond to do its bidding around the world and why China’s dealings with the Bidens is worthy of serious investigation. He also explains why the new “Inflation Reduction Act” is really a huge win for China.

Schweizer is author of numerous books including “Red-Handed: How American Elites Get Rich Helping China Win” and “Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich.” He is also the host of “The Drill Down with Peter Schweizer.”

Sara also recounts some of her travels to Central America from last week and the work she is doing to tell the truth about what’s really happening at the border and, how it’s weakening national security and impacting every one of us.
