First and foremost, DHS itself expresses concern with this bill. They're the hired experts - maybe listening to them rather than burdening them with poorly thought out legislation would make more sense. Second, this bill focuses only on Islamic terrorism and ignores the rise in other hate groups both domestically and internationally. In fact, nine amendments to address that myopic view were rejected by the majority party. Given that many in the US who are affiliated with white supremacist hate groups such as the KKK and American Vanguard self-identify as Republican and proudly display their solidarity with current members of the Administration, it is hard to see the rejection of those common sense amendments as anything other than at best partisanship, and at worst willingness of the Republican Party to tacitly express approval for those who rally around white supremacy and other agendas of racism and bigotry.
