“President Trump’s claim that nearly ‘3 in 4’ convicted of terrorism are foreign born” The Washington Post

The Washington Post fact checks a report that the Department of Justice put out that claims that the majority of people who commit terrorist attacks are foreign born. The statistic was reached by looking at international incidents and includes people who committed attacks overseas and were brought to trial in the United States. Many counter-terrorism experts believe that the report is inaccurate because of the arbitrary parameters used. Karen Greenberg said, “the new report from the Trump administration showed a need for more rigorous standards in the government. It’s an awfully thin report for an absolutely important topic. There’s almost no rhyme or reason to the things they choose to include or not include — they don’t explain it.”
