(HOUSTON) — Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee said the terrorists tied to Islamic State of Iraq and Syria may try to carry out terror acts in the U.S. and in other countries.
Congresswoman Jackson Lee said she is concerned ISIS may try to export its terror.
“ISIS has the potential, as they are so violent, to be able to want to make a statement inside the homelands of many different nations and the United States may be one of them,” Jackson Lee said.
Jackson Lee, a senior member of the House Homeland Security committee, said the U.S. is meeting with NATO allies this week.
She said talks should be expanded to include nations in the Middle East who have to step up and do their part to confront and defeat ISIS.
“Governments that are stable, and may be non-stable, but who will recognize that ISIS is a threat to their government,” Jackson Lee said.
Jackson Lee says ISIS is trying to carve out its own state by taking parts of Iraq and Syria, and that cannot be allowed to happen.
