Extended Stay

The National Guard has not been sent home from Washington DC yet. Thousands of troops will remain stationed in the nation’s Capital during the impeachment trials of former President Trump.

“As we continue to work to meet the final post-inauguration requirements, the National Guard has been requested to continue supporting federal law enforcement agencies with 7,000 members and will draw down to 5,000 through mid-March,” an agency spokesperson said. “We are providing assistance such as security, communications, medical evacuation, logistics, and safety support to state, district, and federal agencies.”

At least they will have proper lodgings. After images of them sleeping in parking garages went viral last week, President Biden called to apologize for this and asked what he could do. The Capitol Police has since found them “appropriate spaces.”
