The Insurrection Act of 1807 is a U.S. federal law that empowers the President of the United States to deploy military and federalized National Guard troops when governors have lost control over their states and need federal help to restore order. The law states that governors must request help from federal troops. In May 2020 a series of protests and riots erupted in the U.S. after Minneapolis resident George Floyd was killed during a confrontation with the local police department. In June 2020 President Donald Trump stated that he would deploy the US Military if a “city or state refuses to take the actions that are necessary to defend the life and property of their residents.” Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden criticized the president's actions, and his threat to send in the military, in a Tuesday speech. Biden said that the U.S. was "not horses rising up on their hind legs to push back a peaceful protest. Not using the American military to move against the American people."
This question needs to be rewritten. The president should be able to deploy military in order to protect the wellbeing of the nation. People have a right to protest and that should not be limited unless there is violence to any part of the nation.
The president should be able to send the U.S. navy anywhere they NEED to be, if the president sends them somewhere they dont need to be then they are putting many lives in danger. So yes they should be able to send the U.S. navy anywhere but only if needed.
if the protesters become violent that it put people at risk to be injured but no if it is peaceful and is not putting any one at risk of anything even then they should not be violent with the protesters to put them at risk
A lot of what has been going on where not the types of protest the founders were alluding to. The people that are "protesting" are raiding and burning down businesses. So he should be aloud to help the people who are suffering because of the rioters.
