United States Attorney Andrew M. Luger’s Statement Regarding Twin Cities Particpation In White House Summit On Countering Violent Extremism

United States Attorney Andrew M. Luger said: “I look forward to participating in the White House Summit on February 18 with Twin Cities law enforcement and community leaders and stakeholders, my colleagues from the U.S. Attorney’s Offices in Boston and Los Angeles, and CVE leaders from around the world. Since I began working with the Somali Minnesotan community last spring to design a plan that will address the root causes of terrorist recruiting, I have come to learn that we share a deep commitment to see our community prosper in peace and security.”

It is expected that the Minneapolis-St. Paul delegation to the White House Summit will include approximately 15 law enforcement and Somali community leaders.
