This bill would require the intelligence community to provide the congressional intelligence committees with a report on foreign fighter flows to and from overseas safe havens. The initial report would be delivered within 60 days of this bill’s enactment, and would be updated every 180 days thereafter.
For each area designated as a terrorist safe haven in the report, the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) would include the following information about foreign fighters in those areas:
The total number of foreign fighters who have traveled or are suspected of having traveled to the terrorist safe haven since 2011, including the foreign fighters’ country of origin;
The total number of U.S. citizens present in the terrorist safe haven;
The total number of foreign fighters who have left the terrorist safe haven or whose whereabouts are unknown.
The requirement to submit these reports would expire two years after this bill’s enactment, so unless Congress extends the requirement it would sunset on that date.
