U.S. Capitol Police Chief Tom Manger said Monday that the protective fence that was put in place around the Capitol building following the Jan. 6 Capitol riot will be reinstalled ahead of a rally scheduled for Sept. 18.
Driving the news: Law enforcement has been “closely monitoring” the rally, which is planned in support of individuals arrested for storming the Capitol building in January.
While police are tracking several far-right groups that attended the Jan. 6 riots, Proud Boys leader Enrique Tarrio has said he does not expect group members to attend, AP reports.
Details: The streets around the Capitol building and the Supreme Court will be fenced, but not the nearby congressional buildings.
What they’re saying: “The fence will go up a day or two before and if everything goes well, it will come down very soon after,” Manger said.
What to watch: Manger said the USCP will do a press briefing “a day or two” before the rally with more operational details.
