This is the June 4, 2019 hearing on "Confronting Violent White Supremacy (Part II): Adequacy of the Federal Response," held before the House Subcommittee on Civil Rights and Civil Liberties. From the Opening Statement of Jamie Raskin: "We are convening the second in a series of hearings on confronting white supremacy, where we will focus on the adequacy of the Federal response. [...] Last month's hearing left me with three primary concerns. First, the FBI's data collection and reporting system at best drastically underreports hate violence in the U.S. and at worst deliberately obscures the scope of the threat. Second, the FBI's allocation of antiterrorism resources is skewed to international terrorism, despite data showing domestic terror to be the greater threat today. And, third, the Department of Homeland Security appears to have no overall strategic plan for how to counter and prevent white supremacist violence." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Michael McGarrity, Calvin Shivers, Elizabeth Neumann, Tony McAleer, Lecia Brooks, Brette Steele, and Todd Bensman.
