This is the February 24, 2021 hearing on "Rise of Domestic Terrorism in America," held before the U.S. House Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, and Homeland Security of the Committee on the Judiciary. From the opening statement of Sheila Jackson Lee: "Over the course of the last four years, every corner of the United States has felt the impact of rise of domestic terrorism. Communities of faith, peaceful protesters, and even the United States Congress itself have been attacked by domestic terrorists. The Executive Branch has an array of statutory authorities to prevent attacks and bring charges against domestic terrorists, including those that are White supremacists. It is abundantly clear, however, that despite pleas from Congress and the American people, these tools have not been fully utilized nor implemented effectively and with the full force of law and all the available resources. We must focus on our Federal Government on the goal of eradicating those homegrown threats in communities across the country. Domestic terrorists pose a clear and deadly threat to the well-being of all Americans." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Wade Henderson, Malcolm Nance, Andy Ngo, and Michael German.
