Remember when Barack Obama said “fences won’t work” as an excuse to keep the border open to illegal aliens?

Yeah, well the Obama White House is adding another layer of steel spikes to the top of the White House fence.
The US border is still open.
The AP reported, via Free Republic:

The Secret Service is adding a second layer of steel spikes to the top of the White House fence to keep would-be intruders at bay, according to a proposal submitted to the National Capitol Planning Commission.

The 1/2-inch long steel “pencil point” spikes will be snapped into place at the top of the fence and protrude outward, according to a diagram included in the proposal submitted for the Secret Service by that National Park Service. The spikes will be added to the fence along the north and south sides of the White House grounds.

The commission is expected to approve the proposal at a hearing Thursday afternoon.

The Secret Service has been studying ways to improve security at the White House since a Texas man was able to climb over the fence and run deep into the executive mansion in September.
