👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻 the Domestic Terrorism Penalties Act of 2019 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
I’m in full support of this bill — the Domestic Terrorism Penalties Act of 2019 — would create a distinct domestic terrorism criminal statute. To do this, it would replicate the penal code structure for prosecuting international terrorism to establish similar penalties for crimes committed speicfically under the definition of “domestic terrorism,” as set forth in the PATRIOT Act of 2001. This would penalize individuals who kill, kidnap, assault, damage, or attempt or conspire to do any of the preceding with the intent to influence governmental conduct.
Domestic terrorism should be subject to the same penalties as international terrorism, and federal prosecutors should be able to charge domestic terrorists accordingly. This bill ensures that this would be the case.
