ComingsNGoings: Immigration Event
November 18, 2015, 10am (Eastern), Washington, DC. The House Committee on Homeland Security will hold a joint hearing with the Committee on Foreign Affairs on "The Rise of Radicalism: Growing Terrorist Sanctuaries and the Threat to the U.S. Homeland." The hearing will examine how instability abroad creates dangerous safe havens for Islamist terrorists to train and recruit, as well as how our lack of a strategy to deal with these ungoverned spaces leads to a greater threat to Americans at home. Location: House Visitors Ccenter, room 210. The hearing will be streamed live. For more information see here.
