I think that all terrorists should NOT be deported for the fact that we will no longer know of their location and what they are planning to do next if they were released into another country. By not deporting terrorists and instead keeping them within a prison we can limit their contact with other potential suspects and reduce the chances of another terror attack happening if they were unable to communicate and plan another attack with the assistance of others.

(This debate is going to be used as part of an extended project so if possible could you include websites that you find useful on this topic as this would help me greatly in my work. Many thanks)


The fact is that by deporting them the country's intel services will be able to trace him to wherever they go. Upon adding to this facial recognition services used by one's country is good enough to recognise the terrorist himself. By deporting the said terrorist one's country may be safe knowing that the terrorist will probably never dare set foot in the said country again. Did you however know that most terrorist acts are perpetrated by that same country's citizen? The reason to this is that they might be insane, idealogical purposes or the feeling of discrimination,segregation, and most of all the urge to do something about what someone believes in regardless of the fact that it's wrong.

Torture doesn't stop criminals from committing crimes. It just makes their cause more righteous in their eyes. Inagine an extremist who has twisted the Koran to suit his own needs and thinks that blowing up people will send him to Heaven. Then we torture him. He'll just figure that God is going to reward him even more for his "sacrifices".

Or imagine a domestic terrorist who bombs a black church. If we were to burn him alive, he'd probably just figure God would sent him to Heaven and his comrades would consider him a martyr.

When our soldiers die in combat or badly injured, their fellow soldiers are just more emboldened and more willing to fight to avenge them. Same for terrorists who think their cause is worthy.

Not to mention torture is morally wrong as well.

We need to stop thinking with our emotions. Use logic instead.

Terrorists should get killed by the amount of pain that which they killed times the amount of people killed using that method.

Domestic terrorism is more likely to kill people than international terrorism.
When it comes to domestic terrorism in America, the numbers don"t lie: Far-right extremists are behind far more plots and attacks than Islamist extremists.

There were almost twice as many terrorist incidents by right-wing extremists as by Islamist extremists in the U.S. from 2008 to 2016, according to a new report from The Nation Institute"s Investigative Fund and The Center for Investigative Reporting"s Reveal.

Looking at both plots and attacks carried out, the group tracked 201 terrorist incidents on U.S. soil from January 2008 to the end of 2016. The database shows 115 cases by right-wing extremists R13; from white supremacists to militias to "sovereign citizens" R13; compared to 63 cases by Islamist extremists. Incidents from left-wing extremists, which include ecoterrorists and animal rights militants, were comparatively rare, with 19 incidents.

While the database makes a point of distinguishing between different groups within right-wing extremism, lead reporter David Neiwert told HuffPost that "those are all gradations of white supremacy, variations on the same thing." When it comes to right-wing extremism, attackers are also "mostly men" and "almost purely white," Neiwert said.

Attacks by right-wing extremists were also more often deadly, with nearly a third of right-wing extremist incidents resulting in deaths compared with 13 percent of Islamist extremist cases resulting in deaths.

Deported to where? You deport foreigners to their home countries. Most terrorist attacks in the US are perpetrated by US citizens.
