The report adds that "law enforcement officers will remain the primary target of (sovereign citizen) violence over the next year due to their role in physically enforcing laws and regulations."
The White House has fended off criticism in recent days for its reluctance to say the words "Islamist extremism," even as the conference this week almost entirely focused on helping imams and community groups to counteract the lure of groups like ISIS.

An administration official says the White House is focused on the threat from all terrorists, including from sovereign citizen and other domestic groups.Sovereign citizens are jackasses who shoot at local law enforcement. If these people are "terror threats," then certain neighborhoods in certain cities are terror training camps because they produce a heck of a lot of new recruits, fire a lot of ammo at police, as well as engage in ongoing terror campaigns against local residents.
Mark Potok, senior fellow at the Southern Poverty Law Center, said that by some estimates, there are as many as 300,000 people involved in some way with sovereign citizen extremism. Perhaps 100,000 people form a core of the movement, he said.If there are up to 300,000 already, the potential numbers are several million. Look how fast ISIS sprung up. New forms of communication, such as social media, allow groups to form rapidly.
Ironically, SPLC is itself a terror group.
