DHS Secretary Mayorkas: ‘Domestic Violent Extremism Is the Greatest Terrorist Related Threat We Face’

Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said Monday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports” that “domestic violence extremism is the greatest terrorist-related threat we face on the homeland.”

Mitchell asked, “As a result of the January 6 attack, are you doing enough to identify extremists domestically?”

Mayorkas said, “We are very focused on this. This is one of our highest priorities. Domestic violence extremism is the greatest terrorist-related threat we face on the homeland. We have created the Center for Prevention Programs and Partnership in the Department. We have a task force dedicated to this effort. We’ve dedicated more than $77 million in grant funding to state, local, tribal, territorial authorities. We are doing so much to address this really grave threat.” – READ MORE
