15,000 National Guard Troops to Deploy to DC for Inauguration

What's Happening:

  • Army Gen. Daniel Hokanson, chief of the National Guard Bureau, has activated and will deploy 15,000 National Guard Troops to Washington DC for President-Elect Joe Biden's inauguration.

  • After last week's deadly Pro-Trump riot at the US Capitol officials feel that extra security will be necessary for the inauguration ceremony. The FBI released a bulletin on Monday warning that "armed protests" are planned for all 50 state Capitols on or before inauguration day.

  • The Army is working together with the Secret Service to determine which National Guard members may require additional screening to ensure they were not sympathetic to "domestic terrorists."

  • Troops will also be receiving additional training upon arrival in the city.
