DHS Bulletin Warns Trucker Convoy Could Soon Begin in US and Disrupt the Super Bowl

The Department of Homeland Security on Wednesday warned that a freedom trucker convoy could soon begin in the US and disrupt Sunday’s Super Bowl in Los Angeles.

“The convoy will potentially begin in California as early as mid-February and arrive in Washington, DC, as late as mid-March, potentially impacting the Super Bowl LVI scheduled for 13 February and the State of the Union Address scheduled for 1 March,” the bulletin said.

CNN reported:

The Department of Homeland Security is warning law enforcement across the country that a convoy of truckers protesting Covid-19 vaccine mandates, similar to recent protests in Ottawa, Canada, could soon begin in the US — with the potential to affect Sunday’s Super Bowl in the Los Angeles area and cause other disruptions.

A DHS bulletin issued on Tuesday to state and local officials, obtained by CNN, said the agency “has received reports of truck drivers planning to potentially block roads in major metropolitan cities in the United States in protest of, among other things, vaccine mandates for truck drivers.”

“While there are currently no indications of planned violence, if hundreds of trucks converge in a major metropolitan city, the potential exists to severely disrupt transportation, federal government operations, commercial facilities, and emergency services through gridlock and potential counterprotests,” the bulletin continued.

A DHS spokesperson told CNN in a statement that the department “is tracking reports of a potential convoy that may be planning to travel to several U.S. cities. We have not observed specific calls for violence within the United States associated with this convoy, and are working closely with our federal, state, and local partners to continuously assess the threat environment and keep our communities safe.”

A massive freedom convoy of truckers that began in Vancouver made its way to Ottawa last week.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is desperately trying to dismantle the freedom convoy.

In the meantime, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Quebec and Prince Edward Island have all announced the end to some or all Covid mandates.
