In anti-racist actions, laws strengthen Trump’s hand: he can put the army on the street. Donald Trump approved the armies’ intervention in the cities!
While protests that began after George Floyd’s murder by the police spread across the country, US President Donald Trump said he would take the army to the street if necessary. While the law gave Trump that right, the last 28 years ago, George H. W. Bush had put the army on the street to suppress the revolt in Los Angeles.
“I DISCONNECT THE US ARMY”
Trump explained that if the city and state governments fail to end the revolt, he will commission the army: “If a city or state does not take the necessary steps, I will put the US army on it.” he argued that the army could not be deployed.
Short answer: Yes, under certain circumstances. There are already thousands of National Guard on the streets of the USA. These consist of the reserve forces of the US army.
The National Guard, which is on the streets in more than 20 states, has been called by the governments of the states or cities in question, but a law that was approved 203 years ago allows the army to be taken to the streets without calling the local governments to work.
NO REQUIREMENT FOR CONVENTION
According to this law, the Law on Revolt, the US president does not need the approval of local governments to put the army on the street if he thinks that the situation in a state has endangered the enforcement of federal laws or citizens’ rights. it allowed them to create forces and assign them. It was later changed to a state that allowed the US army to be taken to the streets in cases of internal turmoil. However, a law expert speaking to the BBC said that the Revolt Act gave the US president the necessary authority to put the army on the street, and did not need Congress’ approval.
The general belief is that the current conditions provided US President Trump with sufficient grounds to put the army on the street. Texas University Professor of Law Robert Chesney says that the authority in this matter is in Trump and does not need the approval of local governments.
On the other hand, the statement of Defense Minister Mark Esper’s statement yesterday that the opposition to the use of this law made it difficult for Trump to do his work. stressed that he had no authority.
According to the Congressional Research Department, the US military has been deployed dozens of times using the law in question, the last of which was almost 30 years ago, during the rebellions in Los Angeles in 1992. Former US President George HW Bush had commissioned the army to suppress the revolt.
The army was used to suppress the human rights movement in the 1950s and 60s, although some of them were despite the objections of local governments. Because of a protest in a school where whites were educated together, there were some who criticized this decision in the country.
After the 1960s, this law was rarely used. In 2006, the Congress amended the law after Hurricane Katrina, making it easier for the army to participate in charity activities. The amendment was later repealed upon the objection of the governors.
