King Calls Upon Secretary of Homeland Security to Denounce Muslim Brotherhood

Sep 7, 2016
Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Steve King released the following statement after he, Representative Randy Weber and Representative Louie Gohmert sent a letter to Secretary of Homeland Security, The Honorable Jeh Johnson, calling on him to publically renounce the Muslim Brotherhood and any further dealings with organizations like the Islamic Society of North America.

“It is appalling to know that the Secretary of Homeland Security for the Unites States, Jeh Johnson, appeared last Sunday before the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), the largest Muslim Brotherhood front in our country today,” said King. “The Brotherhood has been more than vocal about their intent in America: ‘destroying Western Civilization from within.’ Furthermore, ISNA has been identified as the first of 29 groups the Brotherhood has openly referred to as ‘our organizations and organizations of our friends.’

The letter to Secretary Johnson states, ‘Congress and the American people are increasingly seized with the danger posed by this sort of “civilization jihad” in our country. As evidence of the American people’s concern for the threat posed by the Muslim Brotherhood, H.R. 3892, the Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act of 2015, has 64 bipartisan cosponsors and was favorably reported out of the House Judiciary Committee this past February….It is astounding that the individual principally charged with defending the homeland would legitimize, let alone pander to, an organization or its proxy that poses a threat to our constitutional republic and its people.’

Therefore, I have called upon Secretary Johnson to publicly renounce the Muslim Brotherhood and suspend any further dealings with the Islamic Society of North America.”
