The U.S. Secret Service is moving forward with plans to raise the fence at the White House following several reported incidents on the grounds.

Thirty-eight-year-old Marci Wahl has been arrested three times near the White House including earlier this year after her shoelaces were stuck on top of the fence.

Jonathan Tran, 26, made it over the fence and got onto the grounds. In another incident, 58-year-old William Rawlinson jumped a bike rack near the White House.

Statistics obtained by the Seven On Your Side team shows there hasn't been an increase in fence jumpers during the Trump Administration.
