Hurd Introduces Terrorism Bills

By Don Morgan

Congressman Will Hurd has introduced a couple of bills that would make it easier to share information about terrorist with U.S allies and close some loopholes in the visa screening process.

Hurd says not every U.S Emassy is set up to do proper screening for a visa and his bill would change that.

The other bill has to do with some software that would make it possible to share information about possible terrorists before they are granted a visa or allowed to travel to the U.S or one of it’s ally nations.

“As terrorist threats against Americans remain high, we must respond by eliminating visa loopholes, strengthening screening measures, and deploying trained personnel to properly vet visa applicants overseas”

Hurd says the bills will keep terrorists from slipping through the cracks in the system.
