Fear and the seven-foot fence around the U.S. Capitol

To the Editor:

The fence was erected allegedly to protect the U.S. Capitol from damage supposedly from President Trump inciting an assault on Congress. It’s reported it is no longer a danger or is needed, plus the deployment of National Guard is not needed.
I understand House Speaker Nancy Pelosi ordered it and refuses to have it removed until in the fall, costing millions of dollars. I think that in hindsight she well knew what extreme actions would be taken by the Biden administration and truly feared an uprising from the American people – the borders being thrown wide open, pipelines stopped, thousands losing jobs, trillions of dollars being funneled to poorly run Democratic states under the guise of COVID-19 relief when its reported one trillion dollars is still unspent from the last COVID-19 relief bill. Thousands of illegal children housed and then released into the country to flood schools with children that cannot speak or understand English. Yes, I think Nancy is very afraid the Americans will be at her door and that of ol’ Uncle Joe and the rest of the Democrats in Congress. So the wall remains.
