Moments ago, President Donald J. Trump approved an emergency declaration in Washington DC in order to get increased federal assistance ahead of the January 20th Inauguration.
The intent is to “save lives” and “protect property” in the event of civil unrest in the streets. If there are any peaceful demonstrations by MAGA protesters, it’s all but guaranteed that ANTIFA will try to cause a scene. This order helps protect against chaos.
“Today, President Donald J. Trump declared that an emergency exists in the District of Columbia and ordered Federal assistance to supplement the District’s response efforts due to the emergency conditions resulting from the 59th Presidential Inauguration from January 11 to January 24, 2021,” the letter begins.
“The President’s action authorizes the Department of Homeland Security, Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), to coordinate all disaster relief efforts which have the purpose of alleviating the hardship and suffering caused by the emergency on the local population, and to provide appropriate assistance for required emergency measures, authorized under Title V of the Stafford Act, to save lives and to protect property and public health and safety, and to lessen or avert the threat of a catastrophe in the District of Columbia,” it continues.
“Specifically, FEMA is authorized to identify, mobilize, and provide at its discretion, equipment and resources necessary to alleviate the impacts of the emergency. Emergency protective measures, limited to direct Federal assistance, will be provided at 100 percent Federal funding,” the letter adds.
