donald trump says were sending people in to new york following deployment to portland and chicago

Donald Trump has said that he is ‘sending people in to New York’ in the same way he has sent federal forces to Chicago and Portland.

Trump made his announcement the day after Andrew Cuomo, the governor of New York, said he had received reassurances from the president that federal agents were not being sent.

‘You look at what they’re doing to cities – every city is run by a liberal Democrat, and they’re going to hell,’ he told Barstool Sports.

‘We just sent people in to Chicago. We’ve sent people in to Portland.

‘We’re sending people to New York, to help out.’

It was unclear why the president wanted to send federal forces to New York.

New York City is seeing a surge in gun crime, but the issue is one for the City, rather than at the federal level.

He has floated the idea of sending in troops for several days. 

‘I’m going to do something — that, I can tell you,’ he told reporters in the Oval Office on Monday. 

‘Because we’re not going to let New York and Chicago and Philadelphia and Detroit and Baltimore and all of these — Oakland is a mess. We’re not going to let this happen in our country. All run by liberal Democrats.’ 

The White House did not respond to DailyMail.com’s request for further detail of the deployment.

On Thursday Cuomo said that Trump told him federal agents were not being sent to New York City. 

The president told Cuomo he would discuss the deployment of agents with the governor before making a decision. 

‘The president has sent troops to Portland, Oregon. The president is sending troops to Chicago,’ said Cuomo. 

‘He has suggested he would send troops to New York City – troops, federal agents, whatever.

‘I don’t believe there is any justification in doing that. There are not any federal buildings that need protecting.’

He said sending in federal troops would be ‘inflammatory’. 

Andrew Cuomo, governor of New York, said Thursday he would sue if federal forces were sent

‘The president and I had a good conversation,’ he said. 

‘He said he would not be sending troops into New York City – he did not say, period, ad infinitum, but he said that we would talk before he did anything.’

Cuomo said that if the president were to send federal agents to New York City the state would sue. 

‘I believe it is blatantly unconstitutional,’ he said. 

Trump’s decision to send forces in to Portland and Chicago has been met with widespread anger in those cities.

Teams of federal agents from several agencies have been operating in Portland for much of July, drawing outrage from city officials, including Mayor Ted Wheeler, who said their presence inflamed tensions. 

The attorney general of Oregon filed a legal bid to restrict the operations of federal agents who have been battling protesters nightly in the city.

That suit was rejected by a judge on Friday.

A number of other lawsuits have been filed by private parties against the presence of the federal agents, who have been arresting protesters from unmarked vehicles, and Ellen Rosenblum, the attorney general, said she hoped their suits would be more successful.

‘Every American needs to be concerned about what’s happening in Portland,’ Ms. Rosenblum said. 

‘It could be happening in your city next.’

Trump has said he is pleased with the approach of the Border Patrol Tactical Unit (BORTAC) team in Portland, despite their presence sparking a surge in protests, including from a ‘Wall of Moms’ demanding the federal forces leave.  

On Monday, the president declared the deployment of the DHS taskforce a success.

‘In Portland, they’ve done a fantastic job,’ he said. 

‘They’ve been there three days, and they really have done a fantastic job in a very short period of time.’

In Chicago, Trump’s decision to send in federal agents to quell gun violence was equally greeted with anger. 

The number of agents involved is not clear, but Attorney General Bill Barr suggested at one point that around 200 new agents could end up in Chicago.

A Justice Department press release said Chicago would receive 100 new federal investigators. It also said 100 officers from the U.S. Marshal’s Service and 100 from the Homeland Security Department would be reassigned to the Chicago portion of a crime-fighting effort known as Operation Legend, which was launched last month in Kansas City, Missouri.

The Trump administration announced July 8 that it was sending more than 200 agents to Kansas City, Missouri, under Operation Legend, which was named after 4-year-old LeGend Taliferro, who was fatally shot while sleeping in a Kansas City apartment last month.

The agents in Kansas City were to investigate homicides, shootings and violent crime in cooperation with local law enforcement agencies, officials said. 

Many of the agents being deployed to Chicago are already based in and around the city.   

For now, the plan for Chicago and Albuquerque, New Mexico, does not seem to include federal agents engaging with protesters. 

Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf and Barr both said the mission in Chicago and Albuquerque would differ from the mission in Portland.

And on Thursday, agents from the Special Response Team, operated under U.S. Customs and Border Protection, were sent to Seattle.

The federal forces are typically deployed for intense law enforcement operations, similar to the agency’s BORTAC group that has operated in Portland. 

Trump has also floated sending federal forces to Cleveland, Detroit and Milwaukee in coming weeks.

Wearing a floral shirt and sunglasses, Tyson requested song Juicy, a clear favourite among his young family that also enjoyed a singalong to the lyrics. 

While holding youngest child Prince Adonis Amaziah, 18 months, in his arms, boxer Tyson sung: ‘And if you don’t know, now you know, n****.’

Tyson, who’s the half brother of Love Island star Tommy Fury, 21, continued to sing the rest of the track, which included several repetitions of the offensive word.

In the clip filmed by his wife Paris, Tyson said: ‘You’ve got to teach these kids the taste of real music. Biggie and 2Pac all the way.’

The sportsman’s cake featured all the things he loves including a Louis Vuitton belt, boxing gloves, cans of Diet Coke, a European passport, Dairy Milk Fruit and Nut and a photo of his family. 

As well as new trainers and aftershave, Tyson was also gifted sportswear and another belt to add to his collection.

texas couple arrested after baby found dead in bucket of tar

Police in North Texas arrested a mother and father Saturday after discovering the body of their one-week-old baby boy hidden in a five-gallon bucket of tar. 

Roland, 42, and Donna Grabowski, 41, are charged with child abandonment and tampering with evidence, with more charges anticipated as Collin County Sheriff’s Department investigate the death of their child. 

Roland, a registered sex offender, and his wife are said to have told detectives ‘numerous lies’ when they attempted to check on the welfare of the baby.  

The Princeton couple claim they awoke on the morning of July 29 to find baby Micah had died from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) in their bed.

Roland, 42, and Donna Grabowski, 41, are charged with child abandonment and tampering with evidence after the body of their one-week-old son Micah was found hidden in a bucket of tar at their home in Texas Saturday. The couple claims the baby died on July 29 of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome but they initially lied and claimed the baby was with friends

They then made the decision to hide his body and the baby’s death was not reported to police.  

‘They took the child and wrapped him in a blanket and submerged him into a five gallon bucket of tar and put him in a shed behind the residence,’ Sheriff Jim Skinner told WFAA

‘I’ve been in this business over 30 years and I’ve seen a lot of crazy things but this is the first time I’ve found a dead infant in a bucket of tar…and hopefully the last.’ 

An autopsy is being conducted by the Collin County Medical Examiner to determine Micah’s cause of death. 

The sheriff’s office were initially called to the Grabowskis’ home at 9100 block of Highridge Road on Saturday morning after reports of ‘suspicious circumstances’ and the potential death of a child that had not been reported to police. 

They found the home empty but tracked the couple down in Dallas using cell phone records. 

The couple initially refused to cooperate with authorities about the whereabouts of their baby. 

According to the arrest warrant, the couple lied to sheriffs, claiming baby Micah was staying with friends.  

Cell phone records show they made attempts to convince a friend to allow them to use their child as a ruse to trick cops into thinking that their own baby was safe.

‘I need you to say your baby is ours. Quick in and out. They just need to see,’ one of their texts read. 

Donna Grabowski also attempted to lie about where the baby was born. 

She told detectives that Micah was born at Medical Center of McKinney but the hospital had no record of the mother or any live birth. 

‘There was an attempt to deceive us as to what had happened and the whereabouts of their child Micah,’ Sherroff Skinner said.

‘It’s tragic and its sad enough every time we have the death of an infant but its absolutely reprehensible when you lie and you deceive investigators as to the location of the body.’

After the initial police interview, the Grabaowskis were arrested and charged with Abandoning or Endangering a Child, a 2nd degree felony. 

Following their arrest, they admitted their child died but they had not reported it to authorities. 

A search warrant was secured for their home where the sad details of the baby’s whereabouts were finally revealed. 

Investigators found the body of Micah Grabowski submerged in a bucket of tar in a shed behind the home.

The sheriff’s office say they anticipate further felony charges. 

Roland Grabowski is listed on the Texas Sex Offenders registry after being convicted in 2008 of sexual assault of a child and aggravated sexual assault of a child.

His victims were 12 and 14 years old and the offenses took place in September 1995 and October 1996, according to Dallas News

He was sentenced to two years in prison and released in May 2009 but arrested again in June 2010 when he failed to register as a sex offender. 

When he later registered at an address in Garland, police went to verify the address but found it was vacant. 

He was sentenced to five years in prison in 2011 for these offenses. 

Grabowski is considered high risk and must register for life.

man charged with sexual assault of two girls 15 at sex parties

Two teenage girls were allegedly molested by an 18-year-old man after attending organised sex parties.

Police allege the Thornlie man accused of the assaults is also responsible for helping organise the wild parties, which are held at short-term accommodation venues throughout Perth.

Child abuse squad detectives charged the 18-year-old on Thursday as part of an ongoing inquiry into pre-planned parties attended by more than 150 young people recently.

They allege he sexually assaulted the two 15-year-old girls between November 2019 and January 2020.

He was charged with two counts of sexually penetrating a child and one count of aggravated sexual penetration without consent.

The parties where the alleged abuse occurred are reportedly advertised on Facebook, Snapchat and Instagram.

Police are working to establish whether the events are created to specifically target young girls, and have urged other potential victims to come forward. 

Acting Sergeant Chantal Killen held a press conference on Thursday where we confirmed the two victims were allegedly sexually assaulted at separate parties within the Cannington district.

Police will allege the teenager who was charged was part of ‘linked associates’ who organised the parties using fraudulent credit cards. 

‘The victims have come forward… to feel empowered and to show that they don’t condone this behaviour,’ Acting Sgt Killen said. 

‘The parties are advertised online and target … specific ethnic groups and attract a large number of young people,’ police said in a statement issued on Thursday.

Acting Sgt Killen appealed for young people of any ethnicity who felt they were a victim to come forward. 

‘Although our investigations have uncovered that it is specific ethnic groups that are being targeted by these event organisers, this kind of behaviour isn’t limited to one specific ethnic group or culture,’ she said.

‘So… we would encourage any victims of sexual assault of any group to come forward and speak to police.’

The 18-year-old man is due to appear before the Armadale Magistrate’s Court on August 18. 

Anyone with any information is urged to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or make a report online.
