Additional fencing and barriers were installed near the White House on Thursday as security around the complex increases amid ongoing protests in Washington, D.C., following the death of George Floyd. Officials have erected tall fencing along 17th Street and placed concrete barriers along Pennsylvania Avenue near the Eisenhower Executive Office Building. The expanded measures come as law enforcement have pushed back protesters further away from the White House in each of the last two days. The Secret Service did not immediately respond to a request for comment about the added barriers or how long they might remain in place.
