Today, the federal government’s anti-terrorism efforts focus primarily on international terrorism threats. Yet as too many in our community know, the real threat to our happiness and well-being comes from domestic threats such as hate groups and violent right-wing extremists, among others; and those threats appear to be growing in strength and number.
H.R. 3106, the Domestic and International Terrorism DATA Act,which is scheduled to be considered on Wednesday, 9/25, would require an annual, unclassified joint report produced by the FBI and US Department of Homeland Security and the US Department of Justice that provides, among other things, an assessment of domestic threats. H.R. 3106 will help to advance Congressional and public understanding of trends in terrorism, thereby enabling a better response.
WE MUST URGE EVERY MEMBER OF THE HOUSE TO SUPPORT THIS CRUCIAL LEGISLATION!
