U.S. DEPARTMENT OF STATE
Office of the Spokesman
For Immediate Release

December 6, 2001

STATEMENT BY PHILIP T. REEKER, DEPUTY SPOKESMAN

Statement on the Designation of 39 Organizations on the USA PATRIOT Act's "Terrorist Exclusion List"

To further protect the safety of the United States and its citizens, Secretary of State Colin L. Powell, in consultation with the Attorney General, on December 5 designated 39 groups as Terrorist Exclusion List (TEL) organizations under section 212 of the Immigration and Nationality Act, as amended by the new USA PATRIOT Act. By designating these groups, the Secretary has strengthened the United States' ability to exclude supporters of terrorism from the country or to deport the if they are found within our borders.

The campaign against terrorism will be a long one, using all the tools of statecraft. We are taking a methodical approach to all aspects of the campaign to eliminate terrorism as a threat to our way of life. This round of Terrorist Exclusion List designations is by no means the last. We will continue to expand the list as we identify and confirm additional entities that provide support to terrorists.
