“The attack last month in Barcelona further highlights the increasingly dangerous threat that Islamist terror presents to the West. While ISIS continues to suffer heavy territorial losses in Syria and Iraq, the group has intensified calls for jihadists to carry out attacks against the West.

Now more than ever, we must be vigilant so we can best protect our homeland from those attempting to sneak in or those already radicalized at home.”
