The most common terrorist attacks on American soil are perpetrated by US citizens. White Nationalist in their various forms have attacked and killed more Americans on US soil than any other group or nationality.
Let’s focus on the bad actors most likely to affect our lives first. The terrorist that lives in my community who looks like me, worships like me and never gets a second look from anyone is the one I worry about.
I would rather have law enforcement flagging people on the terrorist watch list who try and enter using their real identification than have them trying to spot faked or stolen identification.
Fighting the extremism in our own society will yield the most results for our present and future safety.
