Ideological Extremism Is Spreading Across The Globe April 27, 2016
Jeff Fortenberry, R-NE
"Thousands of Europeans have left the Continent for the battlegrounds of Syria and Iraq. These radicalized fighters, passport holders—hardened by war and dedicated to jihadist militancy—pose a security risk to their countries of origin in the West. Even some so-called Americans have joined the ranks of terrorist organizations that are metastasizing across the Middle East and North Africa. San Bernardino demonstrated to all of us that the United States is far from immune to the cancer of ISIS’ expansion."

We also see tensions rising with our trading partner, China, and the seeds of potential unrest in the Pacific."
Violence Against Christians Is Genocide March 17, 2016

Barry Loudermilk, R-GA
