The top Democrats on the House and Senate Homeland Security Committees are backing the homeland security strategy Hillary Clinton laid out at a speech at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis on Tuesday.

Bennie Thompson on Wednesday praised what Clinton called a "360-degree" strategy — a five-part plan to root out domestic radicalization and fight ISIS abroad — and said it would help stop another attack like the one that was carried out in San Bernardino, California, earlier this month.
