DNC to Build a Wall for Security During National Convention in Philadelphia! Wait what? i thought they were against a wall hehe!

The Secret Service special agent in charge of security during the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia next month said there will be a security perimeter around the Wells Fargo Complex that will extend higher than five feet.

The DNC’s annual event will include “no-scale fencing,” Special Agent James Henry told NBC10.com.

Henry noted that the specifics about the “perimeter” have not yet been finalized.

This year’s Democratic National Convention will take place July 25-28 in Philadelphia, marking the second time in less than a year that the City of Brotherly Love has hosted a high profile event necessitating a National Special Security Event (NSSE) designation from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

Last year, Pope Francis visited Philadelphia in a historic visit that also triggered an NSSE designation for its potential as a target of terrorism, mass protest, or criminal activity.

Henry downplayed the possible security risks that the DNC might produce.
