STATEMENT: Fleischmann on Brussels Attack

Mar 22, 2016

The following statement can be attributed to Congressman Chuck Fleischmann (R-TN):

"Our thoughts and prayers go out to our friends in Brussels. As a nation we must be ready for any potential terrorist threats and protect ourselves from radical Islamists,” said Fleischmann.  “Yesterday I introduced H.R. 4820, a bill that would require the Secretary of Homeland Security to use the testimonials of former violent extremists or their associates in order to counter terrorist recruitment.  It is my belief that this legislation will help prevent future attacks and protect individuals both at home and abroad.”
