Salem, Ore. — U.S. Department of Homeland Security officials under then-President Donald Trump have compiled intelligence files on people who were arrested in Black Lives Matter protests in Portland, Oregon according to an internal audit.

Surveillance of Portland protesters in 2020 “included lists of friends, family and social media associates of people who did not pose a threat to national security,” US Sen. Ron Wyden’s office, which received the report, told reporters.
