The National Guard troops who were “banished” to a cramped parking garage amid outrage after protecting Washington, DC, in the aftermath of the deadly riots have been allowed back into the US Capitol.

Janeen Birckhead, Inauguration Task Force Commander confirms that troops are out of the garage and back into the Capitol building as authorized by the USCP (U.S. Capitol Police) Watch Commander and the troops will take their breaks near Emancipation Hall going forward,” the Guard said in a statement late Thursday, CBS News reported.

Tammy Duckworth, an Iraq War veteran, said in a tweet: “Just made a number of calls and have been informed Capitol Police have apologized to the Guardsmen and they will be allowed back into the complex tonight.

The troops will take their breaks near Emancipation Hall, according to the outlet.

On Thursday afternoon, Capitol Police asked the National Guard to relocate the troops who had been using the Capitol to rest during their shifts, National Guard Bureau spokesman Major Matt Murphy told CBS News.

“As Congress is in session and increased foot traffic and business is being conducted, Capitol Police asked the troops to move their rest area,” Murphy said.

After President Joe Biden’s inauguration went off with only a handful of minor arrests and incidents, more than 15,000 National Guard troops are preparing to head home

The National Guard Bureau said that of the nearly 26,000 troops deployed to the capital for the inaugural, just 10,600 remain on duty

The bureau said the Guard is helping states with coordination and the logistics so that troops can get home
