Maggie Hassan on Homeland Security
Terrorist attacks strengthen our resolve to defeat ISIS
As the governor of New Hampshire, my first and foremost responsibility is to protect the safety and security of our citizens. In the wake of the horrific acts of terror in Paris, state emergency management officials and I have worked with federal
Homeland Security, the FBI and local police departments to exercise extra vigilance, and I will continue to ensure that the state is taking necessary precautions to protect the safety of Granite Staters.
These heinous attacks were carried out on the streets of Paris, but the terrorists who committed these cowardly acts also targeted each of us--and the values we hold most dear--with threats of their savage violence.
As we see the images of both heart-breaking pain and incredible resilience in France, we know that these heinous attacks will only strengthen our collective resolve to defeat ISIS and rid the world of violent extremism, wherever it may be.

The spirit of our people is also exemplified by the ongoing service and sacrifice of all of our active duty servicemen and women, and our veterans who have made our nation strong. Thank you for your unyielding dedication to our freedom.
