Rep. Norton: Razor Wire Fencing Around Capitol
Makes It Look Like A 'Concentration Camp'


(JTN) — Democratic Rep. Eleanor Holmes Norton, a non-voting member of the House representing the District of Columbia, is calling for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to take down the razor wire fencing surrounding the U.S. Capitol, comparing it to a "concentration camp."

U.S. Capitol Police requested that congressional leaders allow them to keep the fencing in place until September. Norton, a member of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, has proposed a bill that would prevent the fencing from becoming permanent.

"There are fewer and fewer credible threats," Norton told Just the News during an interview. "Keeping it up until September shows that the Capitol Police, who could have prevented much that happened on January the 6th simply by calling in reinforcements from the dozen or so police forces, are now doubling down. The mob that came was summoned virtually by the president. He's gone. They have now seen that even if a fence isn't up, that the police forces know what to do.

The Remote ID ruling, seen as a major step to integrating drones into the national airspace, will essentially provide a digital license plate for drones allowing them to be easily identified while flying. The final Remote ID rule establishes a new Part 89 in Title 14 of the Code of Federal Aviation Regulations (FAR) and becomes effective 60 days after the publication date which is expected to occur in January 2021, according to the FAA.
