News

RIO GRANDE VALLEY, Texas – Acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan says he is concerned about white supremacist attacks.

Speaking at the first public meeting of the prevention of the “Targeted Violence Against Faith-Based Communities” subcommittee, he called on all Americans to fight it.

“The attack in El Paso, and the violent white supremacist ideology that inspired it, offends us all. We must address it with moral clarity. It is hate. It is domestic terrorism, and it must be resisted together by Americans of all races ethnicity and faiths,” says Kevin McAleenan.

McAleenan says he has asked Congress for an out of cycle increase to fund domestic terrorism prevention efforts.
