Most foreign-born terrorists radicalized ‘years’ after coming to US, DHS report – ABC News
Most foreign-born terrorists operating in the United States were radicalized “several years” after entering the country, according to a recently published Department of Homeland Security intelligence assessment.
The findings may undercut the ability of officials to prevent their entry to the U.S. through the vetting and screening process as well as the counterterrorism argument behind President Donald Trump‘s travel ban, which is being held up by court order.
The report — first reported on MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show” and independently obtained, reviewed and verified by ABC News — is consistent with previous non-governmental data and analysis that has been released over that past few years.
A DHS spokesperson confirmed the authenticity of the unclassified, internal report, calling it an “official DHS assessment” used to inform federal, state and local partners on the “trends of foreign-born individuals engaged in terrorism activity in the Homeland.”
