Rogers Statement on the US Designating the Russian Imperial Movement as Global Terrorists
WASHINGTON – Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Ala.), House Homeland Security Committee ranking member, released the following statement after the State Department designated the Russian Imperial Movement (RIM) and the three members of its leadership as specially designated global terrorists.
“I applaud the Trump Administration’s designation of the Russian Imperial Movement and three of its leaders as global terrorists,” Rep. Rogers said. “This is an important step in addressing racially and ethnically motivated violent extremism at home and abroad. RIM demonstrated their intent to carry out acts of terrorism throughout the world by radicalizing and training recruits. We cannot allow terrorists to further their mission anywhere in the world.”
