Tlaib on Trump Sending Federal Agents to Michigan “They’ll have to arrest me first if they think they’re going to illegally lay their hands on my residents”

Rep. Rashida Tlaib has a strong reaction to a report President Trump “says he may send “more federal law enforcement” to New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, Detroit, Baltimore, Oakland, and other cities to deal with unrest.

Tlaib wrote “They’ll have to arrest me first if they think they’re going to illegally lay their hands on my residents.”

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot also spoke out against the idea, tweeting:

Mr. President or not—I don’t care one bit what your name is. I will not allow troops in Chicago, and I will do everything in my power to stop you.

If Rep. Tlaib is arrested, it will be far from the first time.

Tlaib has been arrested during protests on more than one ocassion.
