On July 15th the House Homeland Security Committee unanimously approved highly controversial legistlation that gives FEMA and DHS far more power to roundup Americans they deem as potentially violent extremists.
It creates a new Office for Countering Violent Extremism, or CVE, within DHS under the pretense of preventing Americans from becoming radicalized by extremist groups.
“In the face of mounting threats, our government is doing far too little to counter violent extremism here in the United States,” stated Chairman Michael McCaul (R-Texas), the bill’s main sponsor. “Whether it is the long reach of international terrorists into our communities or the homegrown hate spread by domestic extremist groups, we are ill-equipped to prevent Americans from being recruited by dangerous fanatics.”
