Lawmakers up funding ante for anti-recruitment efforts
by Mukhtar Ibrahim
Three Minnesota House DFL legislators are calling for $2 million in state funding for a program intended to combat terrorist recruitment in Minnesota.
The money will support community-based programs, such as the youth group Ka Joog, that are trying to steer young people away from extremist groups, according to the lawmakers.
The three House Democrats argue that there are currently not enough resources to help these programs. Last April, legislators earmarked $250,000 to fund combat terrorist recruitment.
