Brian Levin, director of CSUSB’s Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism, commented on a bill introduced by U.S. Rep. Pete Aguilar, D-San Bernardino, that has seven recommendations to prevent white nationalists from infiltrating the U.S. military — something a new Pentagon report says is already happening and is a continued threat.

While it might be accelerating, the trend isn’t new, said Levin.

“I really want to applaud Rep. Aguilar for his leadership because this is long overdue and the kind of initial reforms that we’ve been pushing for for some time, but did not have a receptive majority in Congress,” Levin said. “This has been an ongoing problem because a lot of extremists and hate groups want to recruit people with military skills. This legislation will be a solid foundation.
