Many ticket holders turned away from Obama’s speech at Henninger High School
Syracuse (WSYR-TV) - NewsChannel 9 took a number of calls from people who were outside Henninger High School on Thursday with a ticket in hand but were not allowed inside to see the president speak.
Some of the denied ticket holders waited countless hours for the tickets and braved the elements to see the president.
According to White House officials - because of the weather - some ticket-holders were unable to go through security.
Then the U.S. Secret Service and the fire marshal closed the building once it was filled to capacity before everyone with a ticket could get inside.
