Rep. Michael McCaul (R-Texas), the chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, says “an increase in funding” is needed to protect the United States in the aftermath of the Paris terror attacks.
Appearing on ABC’s “This Week,” McCaul was asked by host Martha Raddatz, “What about here in the homeland…what do we really have to do?”
“Well, it’s — it’s very difficult and — and we don’t want these foreign fighters coming into the United States from visa waiver countries,” McCaul responded. “We’ve had, in the homeland, 18 plots stopped that were ISIS-related. We’ve arrested 70 ISIS followers. And we have 1,000 investigations in all 50 states.
