house Bill H.R. 1590

Should There be a National Training Exercise Aimed at Stopping the Travel of Terrorists & Foreign Fighters?

Argument in favor

Homeland Security should develop a training exercise to determine how well prepared our national security infrastructure is to respond to the threat posed by the travel of terrorists and foreign fights.

Yes, of course. Moreover, I believe that the DHS is, and has been, unprepared. We need better Human Intelligence, and less gadgets that are pushed onto tax payers by all the vendors who want a government contract. Also, interoperability among agencies at the local, state and federal level continues to be an obstacle to efficient and effective protection, prevention, response and mitigation efforts. It’s time for the National Incident Management System to get an overhaul. Respectfully submitted, 9/11 Responder, Katrina Responder, and Veteran of four combat tours (Iraq&Afghanistan)

@Ken. Sir you are so BLINDED BY HATE you are a very very sorry sad individual. Most people actually understand what is at stake in America, the people and the leftist media although hate Trump so very very much that the truth is never the issue for them. It’s all about hating Trump. So I say go for yourself to the border. Look for yourself. Trump asked for more money to house and take care of so many people invading our sovereign borders. But the hate group of Democrats in Congress voted it down. So blame yourselves for the deplorable conditions.

There's no need for agencies to carry out a nationwide training exercise aimed at stopping the travel of terrorists and foreign fighters to increase their preparedness.

It seems to me that this is their job and we don’t need another bill for them to do their jobs. Now if you wish to discuss them having more training in identifying Domestic terrorists, well they don’t seem to be so hot at that...

Anything that involves Trump administration would only be to benefit himself. Sooner congress realizes that the better.

We require preparedness and in view of the overreach of ICE and our highly militarized police I am not sure this is the direction to take. Sounds like we are headed into a police state and setting us up for a secured dictatorship. Focusing on health care, education, better jobs, housing and infrastructure would be a better Insurance against terrorism that creating more paranoia.

    It seems like our members of Congress are just proposing anything in order to pretend that they’re actually doing something productive. The DHS should already be dealing with these kinds of situations in real life. They don’t need a training exercise.

    This is stupid. First, isn’t this what DHS is for and should be doing everyday? With 22 trillion in debts is this a good way to spend money? This sounds like just another way to waste taxpayers money and the time of public servants.

    Our greatest terrorist threat is from the far right neo Nazis. They are here and seem to be emboldened by the Trump administrations nationalist rhetoric. They have infiltrated our local government, police and military. Our greatest threat to democracy is acting in plain sight and encouraged by the White House.

    I do not believe this administration has the ability to determine what is and is not a threat to our National Security. Learn to be responsible for what you say and do. Certainly, if a group of 6 year old Daisies can understand this concept, then seasoned professionals SHOULD BE able to grasp the concept.

    Pass the House Bill H.R. 1590..... Now and Not Later I’m all for This bill — the Terrorist and Foreign Fighter Travel Exercise Act — which would require the Dept. of Homeland Security (DHS) to plan and conduct a preparedness exercise to evaluate how prepared the U.S. security apparatus is to detect and prevent terrorist and foreign fighter travel. After the exercise is conducted, the DHS would have to submit a report detailing vulnerabilities in U.S. security with respect to terrorism. The report would include recommendations for what legislative actions should be taken to remove the vulnerabilities. SneakyPete. 👍🏻👍🏻HR-1590👍🏻👍🏻. 4*1*19

    Make sure you restrict the movements of domestic terrorists too. The KKK is a terror group.

    This could very easily be a call to marshal law for the sake of tyranny. Too much of a slippery slope and I care more about freedom and national security than just about any other topic these days.

    "Today, America would be outraged if U.N. troops entered Los Angeles to restore order [referring to the 1991 LA Riot]. Tomorrow they will be grateful! This is especially true if they were told that there were an outside threat from beyond [i.e., an "extraterrestrial" invasion], whether real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence. It is then that all peoples of the world will plead to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well-being granted to them by the World Government." Dr. Henry Kissinger, Bilderberger Conference, Evians, France, 1991 I tried to post this earlier but hit the WRONG button. Take a deep breath and ask yourself when did this all become an EMERGENCY and why. We saw a DECREASE in illegal immigration so what changed? What changed were the people VOTED into office. Trump and his gang have attacked our ALLIES and befriended the world’s DICTATORS. He has openly attacked EVERY program that helps Americans and the poor countries we have helped in the past. Dear God, PLEASE take a few hours to find out the REAL REASONS these people are fleeing their countries. Countries like Honduras may have always been POOR but in many ways, they live a better life than most. ONE, JUST ONE American CORPORATION managed to destroy an entire countries economy. America has done this to many THIRD WORLD COUNTRIES. We TALK about RESPONSIBILITY but refuse to accept our part in all this. We have just FIVE PERCENT of the world’s population but use about 30% of its resources and the poor people in POOR countries are where we STEAL those resources from. WHAT WOULD YOU DO if YOU lived in these countries? Don't let them control you with FEAR.

    We need our infrastructure at home rebuilt and that's everything from power, water, and so on to a new party to undo all the damage done by the Republican party and the oligarchs who run the Republican politicians. Our society is in near ruins and I don't like our empire's business of being a mob state like Russia. We have to pick ourselves up and push out Justice against the Banks and corporations and just say no more billionaires allowed. Just tax the crap out of them and that'll solve allot but it's gotta be done soon.

    No. This is a large scale practice operation, with people from the federal, state, and local governments. First, who is going to pay for this? Second, are the people participating going to take a vacation so they can play in war games. If not, then there is a cost for running these scenarios. Provide a cost and maybe my point of view may change. We deserve to know how every penny of our hard earned money is being used.
