Republicans Press for Removal of Capitol Security Fence

Several House Republicans say one of the first orders of business if they regain a majority in 2022 will be to take down the security barrier surrounding the Capitol.

The massive fence, erected after rioters stormed the Capitol on Jan. 6, remains standing. Ten members of Congress told the Washington Free Beacon that the barricade serves no purpose, citing a lack of threats since Jan. 6, and that they would push for its removal.
