Portland surpasses murder record from 1987
Courtney Parella | October 19, 2021

Portland has had 67 homicides this year, surpassing the city’s previous murder record set in 1987.

The Portland Police Bureau has been struggling to handle the city’s spike in violent crime, thanks to Democrats’ anti-police platform that led to staff shortages and major budget cuts.

When will Oregon Democrats, like Peter DeFazio and Kurt Schrader, stand up for law enforcement and the safety of Oregon families?

NRCC Comment: “Peter DeFazio and Kurt Schrader are failing Oregon families and law enforcement. They should be using their Congressional platform to sound the alarm about this terrifying spike in violence.” – NRCC Spokeswoman Courtney Parella
