Ahead of President Joe Biden's State of the Union address this evening - what concerns do the political elites on Capitol Hill have that require security crews to erect a large steel fence around the immediate perimeter of the Capitol Complex? 

In several posts on X, FOX News Senior Congressional Correspondent Chad Pergram said the steel, grated 12-foot fence around the Capitol Complex was erected on Wednesday night on the orders of the Secret Service. 

Security officials told Pergram that the fence "is in preparation for the President's State of the Union speech tonight." 

Officials explained to the journalist that erecting fences around the Capitol Building is considered a "new normal" and a security posture. They added that this is in response to a "national security event of the highest order." He also said this is the fourth State of the Union speech where fencing has been in place. 

More scenes from the Capitol Building on Thursday. 

One X user pointed out: "National Guard in NYC + fences in DC = happening status: it's." 

Another X user said:

On Wednesday, New York Governor Kathy Hochul mobilized 1,000 National Guard troops and State Police officers across New York City's subway system in a show of force meant as a warning to criminals and illegals who have been terrorizing passengers.

However, we noted this about Hochul's response: 

What's puzzling - is if the only threats were violent criminals and migrants, why deploy the National Guard? The NYPD is fully capable of increasing its presence and flooding subway stations with officers. This raises the possibility that the threat is more significant than just migrants, potentially hinting at terrorism-related concerns.

Meanwhile, the Federal Bureau of Investigation warned earlier this week that a rogue Iranian intelligence officer is on the loose in the US, with assassination attack plans against former and current government officials. 

Many X users are disgusted with the political elites in DC, complaining how there is money for a wall around the Capitol Building but not for the open southern border.
