Federal officers fired tear gas to disperse protesters in the early hours of Tuesday, as tensions were high on the streets of Portland for the 60th straight day.

This - after a gathering of demonstrators stood chanting: (“I can’t breathe”)… enraged over the death of George Floyd after a police officer pressed a knee into his neck while detaining him.

Fireworks were thrown toward the federal courthouse in Portland, according to local tv, which also reported the arrest of at least one person - led away in a Homeland Security vehicle.

Federal agents here have drawn national attention for whisking away demonstrators in unmarked cars, beating a U.S. Navy veteran and tear-gassing activist mothers and the city's mayor.

On Monday - six Democratic mayors urged Congress to halt President Donald Trump's deployment of federal forces to their respective cities, saying the move has escalated tensions at anti-racism protests.

The appeal came on the same day the U.S. attorney for Oregon announced the arrest of 22 people on charges stemming from clashes with federal and local police at the federal courthouse in Portland.

Trump has said that federal forces are necessary to restore order to cities such as Portland.

The U.S. Marshals Service on Monday tweeted it was lining up personnel to send to Oregon… “in case they were needed.”

Donald Trump administration allows H-1B visa holders to enter US on conditions

The Trump administration has relaxed some rules for H-1B visas holders. They have been allowed to enter the United States if returning to same jobs they had prior to the proclamation of the visa ban. Dependents (spouses and children) will also be allowed to travel along with primary visa holders, said the US Department of State advisory. The Trump administration also allowed travel by technical specialists, senior-level managers, other workers who hold H-1B visas as their travel is necessary to facilitate the economic recovery of the US. The administration also allowed travel of visa holders who are working as public health or healthcare professional, or researcher to alleviate the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, or to conduct ongoing medical research in an area with a substantial public health benefit. Earlier on June 22, US President Donald Trump had signed a proclamation, banning the entry of workers in several key non-immigrant visa categories including H-1B. Trump had argued that they eat into American jobs during Covid pandemic. The H-1B visa is a non-immigrant visa that allows US companies to employ foreign workers in speciality occupations that require theoretical or technical expertise.
