Democratic lawmakers say the threat of domestic extremism remains high almost one month after protesters stormed the U.S. Capitol.
With six floors, 600 rooms and 1.5 million square feet, the U.S. Capitol Building is vast – and a challenge to adequately secure.
The major debate in security circles right now is whether it’s best to protect the Capitol with high fences, gates and a visible police force, or protect it from the inside by dominating the points of entry.
Capitol Police have proposed high, permanent fencing around the Capitol grounds. The idea is opposed by DC’s Mayor and members of Congress.
The House took an unprecedented step Tuesday night, voting to levy hefty fines against colleagues who bypass the recently installed metal detectors that surround the chamber.
The fines — $5,000 for the first violation, $10,000 for any thereafter — are just the latest security measure to be implemented in an attempt to reassure members and their staff that the House is safe. But that remains an elusive goal, lawmakers said Tuesday as they returned to a Capitol still surrounded by concrete barricades and barbed wire.
And one video allegedly shows that the U.S. Capitol unveiled a new warning system that signals the building is under attack.
