From the Office of Democratic Representative Litzy Gonzalez

White identity and other far-right groups have been on the rise around the globe. The deadly consequences of this radical ideology have been seen from El Paso to Christchurch. Despite a rise in transnational white identity radicalization US efforts to address this global threat have lagged well behind our counter-terrorism efforts against ISIS, al-Qaeda, and other Islamic extremist organizations.

That is why I have introduced into the House Hopper the Countering Global White Supremacist Terrorism Act which directs the US State Department to develop a strategy with other government agencies to respond to the interconnected global white identity movement. The bill also requires that the State Department report on these groups and determine whether they should be subject to sanctions under existing US law.

There is no place in our world for these kinds of groups and they must be eradicated. We all know all too well the horror that such groups have inflicted on our own country throughout history. We must develop a whole-of-government strategy to confront these groups as seriously as any other transnational extremist group.
