The number of soldiers for the inauguration of Biden is expanded to more than 20,000

Washington, Jan 13 (EFE) .- Washington Police Chief Robert Contee announced this Wednesday that they had expanded to more than 20,000 the number of members of the National Guard deployed for the days before and during the president’s inauguration ceremony. elected, Joe Biden, on January 20. So far, the maximum number of soldiers to be deployed from this weekend has been established at between 10,000 and 15,000, many of whom were quartered last night inside the Capitol, which on January 6 was attacked by a violent mob of supporters of outgoing President Donald Trump. The Pentagon considers that the number of members of the National Guard destined to reinforce security in the US capital is close to 30,000, to which will be added the bodies of the Capitol Police, the National Park Police, the local police of Washington and the Secret Service. “I think we can expect just over 20,000 National Guard personnel to be throughout the District of Columbia,” the acting Washington police chief reported. According to Defense Department sources consulted by the Washington Post, the final determination of the forces that will be needed in the capital during the inauguration will depend on the requirements of the Secret Service, in charge of presidential security. At the moment, there will be 10,000 troops deployed to Washington this weekend, double the entire current US military presence in Afghanistan. For the first time since the Civil War (1861-1865), several hundred soldiers were quartered inside the Capitol, where they had to sleep on the marble floors and corridors, surrounded by the sumptuousness of the legislative headquarters. Washington authorities have been forced to call in units from the Maryland and Virginia National Guard, neighboring states, as well as a rapid reaction force specialized in riots. On January 6, while the two houses of Congress met to certify Biden’s electoral victory, a violent crowd stormed the Capitol, taking it for several hours and resulting in four deaths among the protesters, one of them due to gunshot wound, and from a policeman by a blow to the head. Trump instigated the crowd in a previous speech in front of the White House. In some cases, some of the participants had already notified their intentions on the internet. Secretary of the Army Ryan McCarthy told the Washington Post on Tuesday that they should be careful when sending the National Guard from other states to Washington, as there are threats of unrest during the inauguration not only in the capital, but also in the government offices of the 50 states of the country.
