A group of violent protesters set up an organization outside the house of the Department of Homeland Security secretary Chad Wolf.
ShutDownDC Protesters Stalk Official
The group was with ShutDownDC, which stalked Trump administration officials to restaurants a few years ago in protest against President Trump’s immigration policies – specifically the separation policy at the United States-Mexico border.
The protesters camped outside Wolf’s Virginia residents through Saturday night into Sunday to protest the federal officials who have been sent to Portland, Oregon.
“We visited Chad Wolf this morning to tell him to send his thugs home and to support our friends in Portland, at the border, and across the country @popmobpdx @pnwylf Chad’s neighbors joined us — awkward!” the protest group said on social media.
BLM Take Over Portland
Black Lives Matter and ANTIFA rioters have taken over Portland and have continuously wreaked havoc with the violence now gone on for over 50 days. The Trump administration sent federal agents to the Oregon city and as well as Chicago, Illinois.
“Marching under the ‘Shut Down D.C.’ banner, they then made their way to the DHS chief’s home where activists were pictured gathering outside with signs that read ‘Resist Trump’s Troops’ and ‘No more teargas, no more tearing families apart,'” Newsweek reported.
“We know there are no career consequences for these men and women. We know there are no financial consequences for these men and women. We know there are no legal consequences for these men and women. We must make social consequences for these men and women,” one of the protesters told the media on the scene.

He also told of why they decided to host their gathering outside Wolf’s home instead of in a public place.
“We must make it uncomfortable for them. We will not be good Germans. We will not be the people who sat by and watched our neighbors commit these atrocities and said nothing because their kids were home,” he said.
While the media showed up to cover the event, video footage shows that the ShutDownDC event was rather small in number. About two dozen people were there at 11 am.
