Rep. Max Rose, D-N.Y., wants the National Guard deployed to New York City to enforce a curfew aimed at curbing violent protests sparked by the death of George Floyd.

His comments came in a Tuesday tweet. He wrote: “Last night demonstrated that the Mayor has lost control of situation once and for all. If we are going to enforce an 8:00 p.m. curfew tonight, then the National Guard must be deployed to assist with that and that alone.”

In another tweet, Rose noted that “the majority of the protests yesterday were peaceful.” But he added: “The mayhem that occurred in parts of the city last night — the unprecedented looting and attacks on officers and bystanders — was not the work of peaceful protesters.”

In New York, nonviolent protests Monday night were punctuated by people smashing shop windows near Rockefeller Center and breaching the doors of Macy’s flagship store on 34th Street.

President Donald Trump pushed Tuesday for New York City to bring in the National Guard after businesses were vandalized.
