(Newser) – Inside the White House, President Obama was talking immigration; outside, Secret Service agents were making an arrest. Agents say that just before 8:30pm last night they spotted April Lenhart, 23—who NBC News reports was taking part in a demonstration—walking with a holstered 9mm handgun along the north fence, accompanied by a male. She was charged with possession of an unregistered firearm and ammunition and carrying a pistol without a license. An official described Lenhart as uncooperative and her intentions as unknown, the Washington Post reports. A day earlier, a man with a rifle was arrested near the White House.
