Fence goes up around US Capitol, as law enforcement braces for Sept. 18 protest
Fencing outside the U.S. Capitol was reinstalled late Wednesday ahead of the "Justice for J6" rally this weekend.
The fencing erected after the Jan. 6 riot was removed in July.
"Justice for J6" is being billed by organizers as a protest for defendants who are being detained by the government in connection to the January insurrection at the Capitol.
The fencing is just the latest security measure for a rally that has some in law enforcement on high alert.
Federal law enforcement agencies have become concerned that far-right extremists, including the Oath Keepers and Proud Boys could come to Washington for the protest.https://abcnews.go.com/Politics/fence-us-capitol-law-enforcement-braces-sept-18/story?id=79915779
