Bill Focuses on International Terror Threat, Ignores Danger at Home, Says Congressman Thompson

WASHINGTON– U.S. Representative Bennie Thompson (D, Miss) says that a bill being considered by legislators today ignores the fact that there are terrorists here in the United States.

Thompson says this bill, H.R 4820, known as the “Combating Terrorism Recruitment Act” is just a political move by the GOP to ignore the Obama Administration’s approach to countering all forms of terrorism. He says Republicans refuse to use the terminology “domestic terrorism” in the bill.
