Press Conference on Task Force’s Terrorist and Foreign Fighter Travel Report

September 29, 2015 11:00 AM | House Radio & TV Gallery, Studio A (Access HVC-117)

An extensive review has been completed by the Homeland Security Committee’s bipartisan Foreign Fighter Task Force which will release its final report to the public at this press conference. Among the findings, the report shows that gaping security weaknesses overseas—especially in Europe—are putting the U.S. homeland in danger by making it easier for foreign fighters to migrate to terrorist hotspots and for jihadists to return to the West.  The full report will be released on Tuesday, September 29 at 11:00am ET.

The Final Report is available, here.

A summary of the Final Report is available, here.
