Westerman Comments on Paris Terror Attacks, American SAFE Act

November 19, 2015

The House passed the American SAFE Act on Thursday (Nov. 19). This common sense legislation is supported by the vast majority of America. It has bi-partisan support and it is a bill the president should support to prevent future attacks. My constituents and the American people should know we have other tools, including the upcoming Omnibus bill, we can use to protect the homeland should the president veto this legislation. The risks from radicalized terrorists both homegrown and from abroad will not go away, so the House will not stop working to protect America.
