Jihadist threats from homegrown terrorists in America continue to increase each month, with at least nine foreign born individuals living in the United States arrested or convicted in June of attempting to launch attacks on behalf of ISIS and other global terrorist organizations, according to newly released information by Congress.
"Cases of homegrown Islamist extremism in the U.S. continue to be an issue of concern," according to the House Homeland Security Committee's monthly report of terrorism in America, which has been tracking an increase in homegrown jihadists for some time. "Since 2013, there have been 154 homegrown jihadist cases in the United States" from at least 30 different states.




At least nine would-be jihadists were arrested or convicted of terror plots in June alone, amounting to more than one per week, according to the House report.
On June 20 alone, three would-be jihadists either pleaded guilty or were sentenced to providing material support to jihadists. The terrorists were in New York City, Ohio, and Alabama.
Domestic terror convictions and sentencing also occurred on June 1, June 4, June 11, June 13, June 21, and June 25, according to the report.
At least 10 plots were foiled in Europe over the same period.
A full list of those arrested and convicted in June, as well as a summary of other Western terror plots can be found in the committee's full report, found here.



Hate to break away from the current civil war we are all enjoying but while we're trying to kill each other, so are jihadists.


We need to secure our borders.


Of course I would entertain all opinions on how ICE and open borders would be just lovely. . . .

Deserve it? How do you arrive at that? Really?

No one deserves to die. Terrorism is Terrorism, and I have news for you, Uncle Sam is pretty good at it and being able to hide behind a face of "law" to do so. It's just we cover ours in Red, White and, Blue pills.

Side topic.

As a veteran, I'm wholly against war. Been there, done that.

I'm talking about the jihadists who won't hesitate killing innocent men and women.

Quoted for truth.

As a vet myself, totally against "political" wars. Defensive ones? I'm in. Pre-emptive? No thanks.

Now.. can we get back to the topic you posted, or does there have to bee another 150 posts about "but, but... Merca" from socialist apologists?

And innocents lives are lost.

I'm not understanding. How does a "focus" on the border help prevent terrorism or potential terrorism from people that are already in this country?

There is not much you can do unless you are going to enforce rules on immigration based on religion, and that contradicts a constitutional viewpoint.
