Fighting Terrorism at Home

With recent bombings, Senator Rob Portman has ideas of how to combat terrorist activity in the United States.

He believes that focusing on homegrown terrorists alongside those across seas is the best way to spot terrorists before they strike; this could involve working with the Muslim community to keep an eye out for warning signs  Online activity was another point of interest that the senator wanted to focus on.

Sen. Portman believes that getting funding for the FBI can help stop terrorists before they can act.

"I think it's a good investment of taxpayer dollars for us to ensure that we are monitoring what's going on online and monitoring these individuals, the FBI have to have the resources to follow these people," said Sen. Portman.

Sen. Portman is also working on a bill to stop heroin from other countries from coming to the United States to reduce overdoses.
