  • U.S. Secret Service agrees with Trump and wants a taller and stronger wall around the White House.
  • A large number of people have been tempting to jump the White House fence recently, which prompted the idea.
  • The proposed new fence would be 11 feet and 7 inches tall with 1 ¾ inch spikes and would be implemented by 2018 maybe sooner.

The U.S. Secret Service has one thing in common with Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump: They want a “taller and stronger” wall — sort of.

Rather than around the country’s borders, the Secret Service is proposing an improved fence around the White House, following an increase in the number of people attempting to jump the barrier onto the ground of the executive mansion.

The proposed new design would incorporate “anti-climb features” and “intrusion detection technology” in order to deter possible jumpers, according to a statement from a Secret Service spokeswoman. The new “complex design” would feature a fence that is 11 feet and seven inches tall with 1 3/4-inch pickets and taller gates near entrances.

The current fence simply is not adequate for a modern era. We’ve said that before. It is becoming more and more acutely clear that that is, in fact, the case,” Secret Service official Tom Dougherty said, according to NBC Washington.

“[The fence] is entirely scalable, depending on the circumstances, and we have now a society that tends to want to jump over the fence and onto the 18 acres,” he added.

The current 6-foot fence boasts small spikes, which officials call “pencil points,” that were installed in 2015 after a series of jumpers crossed onto protected White House property.

The Secret Service, working with the National Park Service, is awaiting approval from the National Planning Commission before the proposal can move forward. The goal is to begin building the higher-security fence by 2018, but an exact timeline is unknown.


“There are still several additional steps before construction could begin on a new fence, and a timeline is not concrete,” the Secret Service said.

This comes after the White House was briefly placed on lockdown Tuesday after a male robbery suspect, who authorities said was attempting to flee police custody, jumped a fence near the president’s house.

    A wall will protect our country as well as our people. I would also take some troops who are not on a mission and re-enforce our border patrol by using and training them as if they were on a mission. Troops not in use.

    If the security people were doing their job there would be no need for a higher fence

  • stan says:

    If the people in the white house did not make such stupid laws, and they were for the people. They would not even need a wall of any kind.

  • Michael Cleveland says:

    Wall? What good is a wall? Have you seen their new sophisticated tunneling systems? What about their “disposable” submarines? Boats and aircraft? Their needs are desperate, and they will take any action and meas available to them. Walls are a joke. Come up with a real and viable solution. From a retired Customs Patrol Officer

  • RONALD says:

    Walls work, other countries build walls ,White House builds a OB a bigger wall and we need a wall all along the southern boarder for sure, tired of the cost of Illegals and the drugs/crime they bring.

  • Ron says:

    A temporary wall or or stricter requirements on background history should be a normal procedure for entering US….We used to have it.!….Most civilized countries have much stricter rules than the US..Why such a big issue.? Up until Obama, there were much stricter rules on immigration..!! By not adhering to our past procedures on immigration, we are slowly diminishing the value of our citizenship. Obama would like that..! His values and the US traditional values are miles apart! How Obama ever got to be a valid candidate for President shows the corruptness of our voting system..SO easy to manipulate most peoples opinions…..Make them feel guilty!………..
