Multnomah County DA Mike Schmidt is a far-left “progressive prosecutor” who refused to prosecute over one thousand cases against BLM and Antifa rioters in 2020. Crime in Portland has exploded exponentially under his watch.
During the first four months of 2022, Portland homicides were up 500% compared to the same period during 2016-2020.
Schmidt’s office already refuses to cooperate with federal law enforcement on immigration cases. Now they are taking things even further. Mike Schmidt has issued an official statement saying they will actively refrain from prosecuting illegal aliens for crimes that could result in deportation.
The statement is a green light for illegal aliens to move to Portland and commit crimes.
