The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) sent federal officers to aid colleagues already on the ground who have been battling protesters as they try to destroy property and injure law enforcement personnel.
According to Chad Wolf, acting secretary of DHS, the nightly riots are not connected in any way to peaceful protests but involve criminals who should be held accountable.
