Security will be beefed up for Joe Biden’s inauguration in 13 days, after a crowd of militants on standby climbed onto the stand and disbanded the Capitol building.
Republican Senator Roy Blunt, who is the chairman of the congressional committee in charge of the inauguration ceremonies, said that with Biden taking oath of office on January 20, greater security would be present.
He told reporters on Capitol Hill that when it comes to security concerns there will be ‘too much depth and depth in terms of external support’.
And Democratic Senator Amy Klobuchar, who also sits on the committee, said a ‘major, major’ review would have to be accompanied by changes in security.
She called CBS ‘This Morning’, ‘What happened and what changes are going to be major reviews.’
The activists erected a huge, anti-climb wire fence in front of the Capitol on Thursday morning as the complex recovered from the previous day’s mob scene in which four people were killed, building collapsed, furniture broken down and goods stolen.
Washington DC Mayor Muriel Boeser extended the city’s 6pm curfew through Inauguration Day.
NBC News reported that the DC National Guard will be placed on a 30-day mobilization to ensure they are ready for the Jan. 20 opening.
A new perimeter, the anti-climbing fence, has been placed around the capitol a day earlier by the rebels, when the rebels ransacked the building a day earlier
In the inauguration stand being built on the west front of the Capitol, the plastic sheet was torn in view of the crowd.

Biden himself said that he was not worried about his swearing-in day.
‘I’m not worried about my safety, security or opening,’ he told reporters in Wilmington, Delaware on Wednesday.
Trump’s pro-rebels swam to the stands being built on the west front of the Capitol for the upcoming ceremony.
They climbed to the structure where Biden and Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris would be sworn in. He waved flags from stands made for TV cameras to record the oath taking.
And they sat on a par with almost every member of Congress, three former presidents and members of the Supreme Court.
Although there was little damage to the construction sector, some sheets of plastic covering the stand were ripped off.
Blunt said that an internal space is ready in case of need to be taken in during the swearing-in.
Originally planned in the event of inclement weather, it can now be used in case of another angry mob return.
‘Weather plan, I think everyone’s health plan is better outside. So, what’s gone so far, said the senior senator from Missouri.
He indicated the number of attendees, already limited due to the coronovirus epidemic, would have to be cut further.
He said, “If we were to go in, we are talking about some 100 people.”
He said that his favorite place would be the Immigration Hall at the Capital Visitors Center, a large open lobby where more people could attend and still follow social distinctions in one form or another.
The hall is also used for special congress ceremonies, usually to line up tourists ready to travel to the building.
Biden condemned the riots on a nationally broadcast address on Wednesday.
The President said, “At this time, our democracy is under unprecedented attack.”
‘This is anarchy, it imposes a limit on treason and it must end now. I ask to draw this crowd back and let this work of democracy proceed. ‘
Most members of the government are involved in the inauguration. President Donald Trump has not said whether he will attend Biden’s swearing-in ceremony, but former presidents George W. Bush, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama are expected.
Most members of Congress appear as judges of the Supreme Court and other political figures such as Hillary Clinton.
Blunt said of his concerns for the day, “I have always been very concerned about the potential of the target of this particular group, which you know that usually most members of Congress, the Supreme Court every former president can include. Huh.”

The crowd climbed to a stand made for TV cameras to record the opening of Biden.
The openings are classified into national security incidents, which include a closed air space and a large-scale police and military presence.
Already Biden was planning a small-scale event because of the epidemic and his team has encouraged supporters to stay indoors. The National Mall is usually packed with supporters to allow their candidates to become president.
The stand around the White House for the inaugural parade has been fragmented by workers, which will now be a virtual event.
Instead, Joe and Jill Biden will participate alongside Kamala Harris and Doug Amhoff A socially disordered pass in the review on the west side of the Capitol. Those are military traditions where Biden will review military troops’ readiness.
Biden will also receive a traditional presidential escort with representatives from every branch of the military from 15th Street to the White House in Washington.
The president’s inauguration committee, he says, would also be greatly harassed socially, while ‘providing the White House with historic images of the president-elect without attracting large crowds to the American people and the world’.
In addition, lawmakers on Capitol Hill have canceled the traditional luncheon held on Inauguration Day for the new president, when he pacified the crowd on Capentall Hill after taking the oath of office.
