Cipher Brief expert and former DHS official Todd Rosenblum says the Trump administration used incomplete and cherry-picked statistics in a new report that says three out of four individuals convicted of international terrorism-related charges since the 9/11 attacks were “foreign-born,” as opposed to born U.S. citizens.

The report from the Justice Department and Department of Homeland Security studied the period between the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks and Dec. 31, 2016. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, said the report “reveals an indisputable, sobering reality—our immigration system has undermined our national security and public safety.”
