Dem. Rep. James Clyburn doesn't seem interested in having the federal law enforcement get involved with protests going on in cities like Portland, Oregon. The protests include requests to defund the police.

Clyburn was also quoted in a CNN article saying that no one is going to defund the police, something he does not appear to support.

"Nobody is going to defund the police," Clyburn, the House Majority Whip and one of the leading African American members of Congress, told CNN's Jake Tapper on "State of The Union." "We can restructure the police forces. Restructure, re-imagine policing. That is what we are going to do."
He continued, "The fact of the matter is that police have a role to play. What we've got to do is make sure that their role is one that meets the times, one that responds to these communities that they operate in."
Here's what Clyburn said on TV about the federal law enforcement getting involved to help cities get protests under control.



Protesters are still calling for the police to be defunded. In Portland, they're on probably their 50th+ day of protests by now.
