LANSING, Mich. (WXYZ) — Local law enforcement are on high alert as armed protests began outside of the Michigan Capitol on Sunday afternoon.
Militia members and other groups arrived in Lansing in protest of President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration. This comes nearly two weeks after the insurrection and riots at the U.S. Capitol that turned deadly.
Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer has activated the Michigan National Guard ahead of the planned armed protests at the Capitol building this weekend.
