One day, after an out-of-control mob stormed into the homes of the Senate and House of Representatives, a “7-foot non-retractable fence” was seen on the ground of the US Capitol.
Secretary of the Army Ryan McCarthy (Ryan McCarthy) confirmed the construction plan for the wall at a press conference. He worked with Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser and the city’s highest police officer Robert Contee (Robert Contee) Talk together.
After the rioters breached security measures on Wednesday and caused serious damage to the building (in some cases damaging the space and stealing property), lawmakers participating in the joint session of Congress went into hiding.
- President Trump condemned the “heinous attack”
- At least 4 people were killed and more than 50 USCP and MPD officers were injured.
At the same time, the city mobilized more than 6,000 members of the National Guard, which will be deployed over the weekend.
The fence will be in place at least for the next 30 days.
