Chairman Thompson Statement on Updated DHS Public Bulletin on the Terrorism Threat

(WASHINGTON) – Today, Rep. Bennie G. Thompson (D-MS), Chairman of the Committee on Homeland Security, released the following statement on Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Majorkas issuing a National Terrorism Advisory System (NTAS) bulletin on the current terrorism threat: 

“While I am glad to see Secretary Mayorkas and DHS leadership taking important steps to inform the public about threats to our homeland both from here and abroad, it continues to be troubling that the terrorism threat increasingly is based on grievance-based violence and conspiracy theories, especially related to the election and former President Trump.

“With the 20th Anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks coming up next month – and the January 6th Attack on the Capitol still casting a long shadow on the nation – we must continue to be vigilant as we work together to mitigate these threats.”
