Summary

                            To require the Secretary of Homeland Security to use the testimonials of former violent extremists or their associates in order to counter terrorist recruitment, and for other purposes.

Introduced in House
Combating Terrorist Recruitment Act of 2017

 This bill directs the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to incorporate the
public statements of former violent extremists or their associates into its
efforts to combat terrorist recruitment, including efforts to counter-message
foreign terrorist organization communications and related community engagement
and public education efforts.

Additionally, DHS must coordinate with federal agencies and, as appropriate,
engage nongovernmental and international partners in the identification and use
of such public statements.

Nothing in this bill may be construed to require DHS to collect statements
directly from former violent extremists or their associates.
