National Guard soldiers prep to head to DC ahead of trucker convoy
One hundred soldiers from New Jersey's National Guard are preparing to go to Washington, D.C.
The soldiers will help police keep traffic moving there as a group of truckers try to shut down the Capital Beltway later this week.
The truckers are protesting federal COVID-19 rules, such as mask and vaccine mandates.
The protest is similar to the blockade in Canada, which caused economic disruptions.
New Jersey guard members will arrive in D.C. on Saturday and leave March 7.
It's unclear how long the protests could last.
