McCaul Statement on State Department Terrorist Designations

Washington, D.C. – House Homeland Security Chairman Michael McCaul (R-TX) released the following statement on the State Department’s terrorist designations of key ISIS-affiliates and leaders across the globe.

Chairman McCaul: “Even after the collapse of the so-called caliphate, ISIS remains a dynamic and credible threat to the West and Americacontinuing to inspire and radicalize people over the internet in the homeland and abroad. The two terror attacks in New York City late last year are stark reminders of their reach. I commend the State Department on their continued vigilance in identifying the spread of ISIS-affiliated groups and key leaders around the world. These new designations will help degrade ISIS’ global network by denying them the resources they rely on to spread terror.”
