Department of Homeland Security warns of increased threats to LGBTQ, Jewish and migrant communities

Through the National Terrorism Advisory System (NTAS), the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has released a bulletin warning of increased threats to LGBTQ, Jewish and migrant communities. The bulletin in part reads:

Some domestic violent extremists who have conducted attacks have cited previous attacks and attackers as inspiration. Following the late November shooting at an LGBTQI+ bar in Colorado Springs, Colorado—which remains under investigation—we have observed actors on forums known to post racially or ethnically motivated violent extremist content praising the alleged attacker. Similarly, some domestic violent extremists in the United States praised an October 2022 shooting at a LGBTQI+ bar in Slovakia and encouraged additional violence. The attacker in Slovakia posted a manifesto online espousing white supremacist beliefs and his admiration for prior attackers, including some within the United States.
