The National Guard said on Sunday that 5,000 soldiers and airmen had been activated in 15 states and Washington, D.C., but that "state and local law enforcement agencies remain responsible for security." A presidential move to federalize National Guard troops is rare, occurring about 12 times since the mid-1900s, mostly during the Civil Rights era of the 1960s, according to the National Guard press office.
As a veteran political cartoonist, Justin Wong is rarely at a loss for the right image. Wong, an illustrator for the Ming Pao, a newspaper with a six-decade tradition of journalistic independence, has long used his platform to defend Hong Kong's autonomy and satirize Beijing's leaders. The new law, if applied as arbitrarily as it is across the border in mainland China, is seen by many as a “death knell” for the former British colony's freedoms, placing Wong and others like him at risk for simply expressing their opinions.
