Senator Jon Johnson’s homeland security committee got a briefing on threats to the US on Tuesday.
Senators heard about an increase in threats from domestic terrorism, including a growing threat from white supremacists. Over 100 suspected domestic terrorists were arrested this year, with over 1000 investigations ongoing at any time.
David Glawe with D H S also briefed senators about an attack on US citizens in Mexico by a drug cartel.
Senator Johnson says Mexican gangs have more control over the southern border than either the US or Mexican authorities.
