The United States and other countries must do better at helping immigrants assimilate into society, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson says.
"For whatever reason, as people immigrate into our countries, whether it be in Great Britain or in the United States or other countries, we seem to have difficulty assimilating those people so that they feel part of our society and would never consider supporting acts of violence against their fellow citizens and their fellow neighbors," Tillerson said at a joint press conference Friday with UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, according to the Washington Examiner.
The entire world must deal with the issue, Tillerson said. "I think that it's an extremely complex issue, this mass migration of people that we are witnessing around the world. It's not a problem only for Great Britain. It's not a problem only for the United States. It's a problem for countries all over the world. It's one that we have to learn better how to address."
In the wake of the Manchester terror attack, Tillerson said that the U.S. government took responsibility for intelligence leaks from the investigation into the attack, according to CNN.
"Even as our ally and friend mourns, the fires for justice burn very hot in all of our hearts," Tillerson said at the press conference with Johnson, CNN's report said.
