“I wish the Obama administration would be more forceful in their approach to fighting homegrown terrorism because I think that is a weakness,” Graham said in a hearing held by the Senate Judiciary Committee’s subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights, and Human Rights. “I think the Obama administration, quite frankly, needs to change some of its policies when it comes to fighting terrorism here at home.”
Law enforcement officials shouldn’t read terrorism suspects their Miranda rights — a constitutional protection against self-incrimination — before they are thoroughly questioned, he said.
The hearing’s focus was protecting the civil rights of American Muslims. Graham said he would keep supporting the Justice Department’s prosecution of cases involving discrimination against Muslim-Americans, but wants to see that community “get in this fight” against domestic radicals.
