Not content with re-installing the fencing barrier around the Capitol, National Guard troops and tow trucks are now reportedly headed to the D.C. area as well. 

A Fox News report says that state and local law enforcement in the D.C. area have called in National Guard troops to be deployed in Washington from late February to late March ahead of a reported American truckers convoy.

The Movement Is Growing

The Canadian ‘Freedom Convoy’ movement to protest against cross-border vaccine mandate is, reportedly, spawning an American cousin.

“The People’s Convoy” will begin in Barstow, California on Feb. 23, and makes its way across the United States. The plan is to arrive in Washington D.C. ahead of President Joe Biden’s State of the Union speech on March 1.

A second group, The Great American Patriot Project, is reportedly planning routes from Fresno, California, and Cleveland and Columbus, Ohio.

Truckers Preparing

According to the Fox News report, a permit was requested by the truckers from the National Park Service to accommodate 1,000 to 3,000 people. 

In addition to the National Guard troops, Fox reports that tow trucks are also being hired.

In a phone interview with Fox News, the owner of one towing company whose trucks have already been spotted near the Capitol stated that the city of Washington D.C. had hired the company specifically for the trucker convoy and to clear illegally parked vehicles.

 On the other side of the ledger, Bob Bolus, one of the organizers of the People’s Convoy, said in an interview on Sunday:

“We will be along the Beltway where the Beltway will be shut down.” He added, “I’ll give you an analogy of that of a giant boa constrictor. That basically squeezes you, chokes you and it swallows you, and that’s what we’re going to do the D.C.”

Bolus also assured the public that, “There will be a lane open for emergency vehicles, they’ll be able to get in and out and all that. We will not compromise anybody’s safety or health, one way or the other.”

At Least One Familiar Sight Coming Back To The Capitol

While there has been no discussion as to whether or not Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, or any other member of the Biden administration will be willing to meet with the truckers and even go as far as to listen to what they have to say, a familiar sign of what that answer might be is making a comeback around the Capitol building.

Authorities are beginning to reinstall fencing around the “People’s House” that originally went up following the riot at the Capitol on January 6.
