200 Illinois National Guard members headed to DC for inauguration


ST. LOUIS – The state of Illinois is sending about 200 National Guard members to DC ahead of President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration.

By the weekend, at least 10,000 troops are expected to be in Washington as a direct response to the riots last week.

The FBI says it’s leveraging its relationships with federal, state and local law enforcement partners to bring everyone to justice who rioted at the Capitol and make sure it doesn’t happen again.
