PORTLAND, Ore. -- Hundreds of pro-Trump protesters and counter-protesters have gathered in downtown Portland on Sunday.
Portland police tweeted that one person has already been arrested by the Federal Protective Service, and that officers are working to keep the separate groups separated.
"Protesters should stay with their groups, not attempt to cross streets to escalate tensions," the police said in their tweet.
Police also tweeted that any weapons or things that could be used as weapons wil be seized by police, including guns, knives, sticks, bats, fireworks, etc.
At least five different rallies or protests are planned in different parts of Portland this afternoon, with four of them scheduled for downtown.
A large police presence is expected in downtown Portland because so many of the rallies are planned with conflicting messages and within close proximity to each other.
A Trump Free Speech rally is scheduled for the afternoon, and several groups are planning nearby rallies in opposition.
