The Counterterrorism Screening and Assistance Act

WASHINGTON – Congressman Bruce Westerman (AR-04) issued the following statement Monday (March 21) after voting for H.R. 4314, the Counterterrorism Screening and Assistance Act:

“Terrorists seek the destruction of democracy and freedom,” Westerman said. “It has been proven time and again, from September 11th to the terror attacks in Paris and San Bernardino. To aid in our defeat of terrorism and protect Americans, we must have a plan to track and hinder the movement of terrorists who seek to do us harm. The Counterterrorism Screening and Assistance Act of 2016 would combat international travel by terrorists, establish international border security standards, and hold accountable countries that do not join the United States in these efforts.”
