DHS Secretary: ‘Syria Has Become a Matter of Homeland Security’
Jeh Johnson: 'Syria Has Become a Matter of Homeland Security' (CNS News)
Syria has become a matter of homeland security, and we're very concerned about Syria foreign fighters, people who are going into Syria, being recruited by extremists there," Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said in an interview that aired Sunday on ABC's "This Week."
Johnson, worried that fighters trained in Syria could travel to Europe and even the United States, said the U.S. is "working together" with European governments to share information that could help track potential terrorists returning from Syria.
Asked if some of those individuals have been in the U.S., Johnson said, "We are continually monitoring the situation, and we are concerned, yes."
