Leaked DHS Intelligence Report: Citizenship Likely an Unreliable Indicator of Terrorist Threat to the United States


The Associated Press published a leaked draft of a DHS intelligence report that found that country of citizenship is “unlikely to be a reliable indicator of potential terrorist activity,” and that few people from the seven Muslim-majority countries President Trump listed in his January 27, 2017, travel ban have been involved in terrorism-related activities in the United States since the start of the Syrian civil war in 2011. DHS did not dispute the report’s authenticity, but said that the report was “incomplete” and was not a final comprehensive review of the government’s intelligence. As reported in the Immigration Politics Ticker, President Trump is expected to sign a new travel ban on Wednesday—a day after his first address to a joint session of Congress.
