Secret Service Boosts WH Security After Breach

Secret Service

The Secret Service says it has stepped up security around the White House and is reviewing its procedures after a man was arrested for trying to unlawfully enter the White House Saturday, less than 24 hours after a fence-jumper made it all the way into the executive mansion.

On Friday, an Iraq War veteran made it through the front door of the White House after scaling the fence, he was reportedly carrying folding knife in his pants pocket. On Saturday, a man showed up at one of the White House gates on foot, then showed up in his a car at another gate and pulled into the vehicle screening area. He refused to leave and was arrested for unlawful entry.

ABC’s Steven Portnoy joined the show to discuss.
