The Department of Homeland Security Acting Deputy Director Ken Cuccinelli announces plans to increase security measures at the U.S. Capitol.

In an interview on Thursday, Cuccinelli said the department is erecting a fence around the building Thursday and Friday.

Toured the Capitol last night to review damage & assess situation. Appreciate the work of so many LEOs to restore order there, including @SecretService & #FPS.

This comes as a part of efforts to move to a “fully aggressive posture” following the Capitol Hill protests that took place Wednesday. Demonstrators pushed through the fence previously built surrounding the Capitol.
