Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The final step was made with this decision by a Right Wing judge.

As part of a lawsuit against federal agents in the city, Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum had requested that federal officers clearly identify themselves when seizing protesters and stop arrests without probable cause.

But U.S. District Court Judge Michael Mosman rejected the motion, arguing that she did not present enough evidence that future harm would continue at the hands of the agents. The judge also raised doubts about whether the state had legal standing to pursue a suit on behalf of protesters or others who might be targeted by the federal officers.

This means Federal police, of which there is ~120,000 in the US, can arrest people whenever they want, for any reason they want, and they do not have to show cause.
