Confusion in Tulsa: Mayor Issues Curfew as Trump Supporters Gather for Upcoming Rally
Check out this post from Breitbart
Confusion descended upon downtown Tulsa on Thursday evening after the mayor issued a curfew for the area surrounding the BOK Center, where Trump supporters have already begun gathering in anticipation of Saturday’s rally.
Tulsa Mayor G.T. Bynum (R) signed an executive order instituting a 10 p.m. curfew for the area around the Bank of Oklahoma (BOK) Center, where the president’s rally is set to take place.
“As part of our preparations for President Trump’s Rally this Saturday, we are working on making the area secure for everyone’s safety,” the Tulsa Police Department said in a statement posted to social media late Thursday.
“In an effort to start clearing the area, Mayor GT Bynum has signed Executive Order 2020-11 which places a curfew for the area in the map,” the statement continued.
The curfew went into effect at 10 p.m. and will remain in effect until 6 a.m. Saturday.
“After the rally there is a continued curfew from Saturday, June 20, 2020 until 6:00 a.m. on Sunday, June 21, 2020,” the police department explained.
“As Mayor, I have received information from the Tulsa Police Department and other law enforcement agencies that shows that individuals from organized groups who have been involved in destructive or violent behavior in other states are planning to travel to the City of Tulsa for purposes of causing unrest in and around the rally,” the order states.
Per the order:
1. People are prohibited from walking, running, loitering, standing or motoring upon any alley, street, highway, public property, sidewalk, or vacant premises within the boundaries indicated above, except for official designated duty in response to the emergency, providing public safety services, or going to or from a place of residence or work.
2. The manufacture, transfer, use, possession or transportation of a Molotov cocktail or any other device, instrument or object designed to explode or produce uncontained combustion is prohibited within the limits of the City of Tulsa.
3. The transporting, possessing or using of gasoline, kerosene, or combustible, flammable, or explosive liquids or materials in a glass or uncapped container of any kind is prohibited within the limits of the City of Tulsa, except in connection with the normal operation of motor vehicles, normal home use or legitimate commercial use.
Breitbart News’s Matt Perdie was on the scene in Tulsa and confirmed that there is, indeed, a curfew but said it is not currently being enforced.
“There is a curfew, but it is not being enforced on these guys as long as they are behaving, essentially — as long as they are not causing any trouble,” Perdie said, noting that the situation could change.
“There’s going to be a shift change, at which point there could be different action potentially, but right now, it’s just not being enforced,” he added.
The Tulsa Police Department, in its official statement, stated that people who refuse to leave the area “may be cited or arrested.”
“We understand that many people are unaware that a curfew will be in place and barricades are still in the process of being setup. If we find anyone in violation of the Executive Order this evening, we will request that they leave the area based on the curfew,” the department said.
The department also updated the post, claiming that individuals camping in front of the BOK “are being moved”:

Donald Trump to End DACA Again: ‘We Have to Start Process Over’
President Donald Trump said he will restart the process of ending President Barack Obama’s DACA amnesty for 700,000 illegal immigrants.
The announcement came after the U.S. Supreme Court’s surprise decision to block Trump’s cancellation of the amnesty, even though it also admitted that Trump has the power to end it.
“As President of the United States, I am asking for a legal solution on DACA, not a political one, consistent with the rule of law,” he tweeted Thursday afternoon. “The Supreme Court is not willing to give us one, so now we have to start this process all over again.”
The [court’s] DACA decision, while a highly political one, and seemingly not based on the law, gives the President of the United States far more power than EVER anticipated. Nevertheless, I will only act in the best interests of the United States of America!
The five-judge majority on the court ruled that Trump’s deputies had not correctly justified on paper their original decision to end President Barack Obama’s amnesty and award of work permits to the adult children of illegal immigrants.
The judges said the 2017 process was inadequate, and they also said that a more extensive and detailed process in 2018 could not be considered in their judicial review of the cancellation.
The decision by four Democrat judges and Chief Justice John Roberts was silent on many critical questions. For example, the court did not explain whether Obama’s award of work permits was illegal, or if Obama’s deputies had justified correctly their decision to help illegals amid the post-2008 recession, or what steps Trump’s deputies should take to redo the process.
“The majority’s holding creates perverse incentives, particularly for outgoing administrations,” said the dissent by Judges Clarence Thomas, Samual Alito, and Neil Gorsuch. They continued:
Under the auspices of today’s decision, administrations can bind their successors by unlawfully adopting significant legal changes through Executive Branch agency memoranda. Even if the agency lacked authority to effectuate the changes, the changes cannot be undone by the same agency in a successor administration unless the successor provides sufficient policy justifications to the satisfaction of this Court.
In other words, the majority erroneously holds that the agency is not only permitted, but required, to continue administering unlawful programs that it inherited from a previous administration.
Today’s decision must be recognized for what it is: an effort to avoid a politically controversial but legally correct decision. The Court could have made clear that the solution respondents seek must come from the Legislative Branch. Instead, the majority has decided to prolong DHS’ initial overreach by providing a stopgap measure of its own. In doing so, it has given the green light for future political battles to be fought in this Court rather than where they rightfully belong—the political branches. Such timidity forsakes the Court’s duty to apply the law according to neutral principles, and the ripple effects of the majority’s error will be felt throughout our system of self-government.
