(AmericanProsperity.com) – The protection of the President of the United States is the utmost concern of authorities in the Capitol. With Biden’s State of the Union speech just weeks away, Capitol Police want to be ready for anything. So, they’ve decided to surround the Capitol with fences.
The razor-topped fences will be installed ahead of Biden’s address as authorities expect a protest similar to that of the Freedom Convoy in Canada to take place. According to the National File, Capitol Police are aware of the potential of truckers protesting, noting they expect a convoy to arrive in Washington, D.C. on March 1.

A group of truckers, called the Great American Patriot Project, was inspired by the Freedom Convoy and encouraged other eighteen-wheelers to join it to protest against COVID-19 restrictions and mandates in several cities. Now, they’re on their way to the nation’s capital.
It wouldn’t be the first time Biden’s administration used the fence to boost security. A day after the January 6, 2021 riot, the White House demanded a fence be put in place, which remained until July. Then, in September of the same year, the Justice for January 6 Rally prompted authorities to rebuild the fence, only to take it down the following day.
Officials within the Capitol Police noted that their department is working with the Secret Service, D.C. Metropolitan Police, the US States Park Police, D.C. National Guard and other allied state and local agencies to monitor the trucker movement and facilitate necessary First Amendment activities.
