Authorities declared a riot in Portland, Ore., early on Sunday morning after protesters breached a fence surrounding the city’s federal courthouse building where deployed U.S. agents are holed up. Ahead of the declaration, thousands of demonstrators marched in the city chanting “Feds go home” and calling out the names of African Americans killed by police. On Friday night, at least six federal officers were injured after firing tear gas to clear out rowdy protesters.
