Capitol Police Nab Those Who Don't Wear Mask; Speaker Pelosi's Mandatory Mask Rule Is the Law

A memo issued by Thomas Manger, chief of the U.S. Capitol Police, ordered officers on the House of Representatives side of the Capitol Building to arrest staff and visitors who refuse to wear a mask in defiance of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's new rule reinstating mandatory masking in the chamber, The New American website reports today (July 30, 2021). 

"Any person who fails to either comply or to leave the premises after being asked to do so would be subject to an arrest for Unlawful Entry," the memo reads. 

Per the memo, officers are not to arrest members of Congress, but they are to report the noncompliance of lawmakers to the House's sergeant-at-arms.
