The most recent Department of Homeland Security threat assessment lists racially and ethnically motivated violent extremists, especially white supremacist extremists, as the “most persistent and lethal threat in the Homeland.” Curbing the violence could start with a change in the way the government looks at policy.

  • Katrina Mulligan, Managing Director for National Security and International Policy at the Center for American Progress, said mental health problems are a major factor in white supremacist extremism, and the federal government must partner with state and local law enforcement.
  • The Department of Homeland Security and Department of Justice are critical for fighting domestic extremism, and the Intelligence Community should investigate signs of transnational links, said Mulligan.
  • Mulligan also said resources must be more accurately allocated according to threat level within existing federal prioritization frameworks.
