The Biden organization says it'll improve its investigation of dangers from domestic terrorists, including the sharing of insights in law enforcement organizations, and will work with tech companies to remove online terrorist content as a part of the country's proceedings to fight against domestic terrorism.
The National Security Council on Tuesday released the strategy plan, which comes more than six months after a mob of rebels faithful to President Donald Trump raged the US Capital as Congress was voting to certify Joe Biden's presidential victory.
The modern strategy incorporates upgrading the government's investigation of domestic terrorism and improving the data that is shared between local, state, and government law enforcement agencies. Administration authorities said the Justice Department had also executed a new system to “methodically track” domestic terrorism cases across the nation in the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
The Justice Department was also assessing whether the administration ought to suggest Congress pass a concrete domestic terrorism law, which does not exist as of now. In the absence of domestic terrorism laws, the Justice Department depends on other laws to prosecute ideologically motivated violence by people with no international ties.
The government's new strategy also incorporates an effort to recognize government employees who may pose a domestic terrorism threat, with a number of federal organizations working on new policies and programs to root out potential domestic extremists in law enforcement and in the military.
Officials said the Justice Department had also formally made domestic terrorism a top priority and had been reallocating resources at US attorneys' offices and at FBI field offices across the US to combat the threat from domestic extremists.
The Justice Department's proposed budget for next year includes $100 million in additional resources related to domestic terrorism to be used for analysts, investigators, and prosecutors.
The US and four other countries joined in an effort to stop extremist violence from spreading online. The effort, known as the Christchurch Call, involves some 50 nations plus tech companies including Google, Facebook, Twitter, and Amazon, and is named for the New Zealand city where the slaughter at the two mosques took place.
