WASHINGTON – Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema today spoke at a Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee hearing on the need to combat domestic terrorism. Sinema highlighted the work of the Phoenix and Tucson police departments, who are working with federal task forces to tackle domestic terrorism in Arizona, and underscored the need for continued collaboration and improved information sharing on the issue.

“The only way our nation can successfully tackle a challenge like domestic terrorism is by working together. This is not a problem that the FBI can solve alone, nor is it something we can leave to our local police and sheriff departments,” said Sinema. 

During the hearing, Sinema questioned witnesses on how to improve existing federal and local partnerships to better fight domestic terrorism.
