Fence built around Capitol ahead of State of Union to protect Congress, despite Dem claim walls ineffective

A fence is being put up around the Capitol building in Washington, D.C., ahead of President Biden’s State of the Union address Tuesday, despite Democrats halting construction of the wall at the southern border. The Biden administration and congressional Democrats called the southern border wall costly and ineffective, as well as a sign of xenophobia, and have strongly opposed construction of a barrier to control the influx of illegal migrants pouring into the U.S. from countries like Mexico, Honduras and Guatemala. Biden is expected to give his second State of the Union address at the Capitol on the House floor, where most members of Congress in the House and Senate will attend in-person. Despite objections by Democrats to a barrier on the southern border, a large fence started being constructed Sunday around the Capitol complex. Republicans say Biden must address the number of crises that developed over the past year, including the migrant crisis at the southern border.
