 The terrorist attack in Brussels last month has renewed debate over ways to counter violent extremism in the United States, with calls by some Republican presidential candidates calling for surveillance of American Muslim neighborhoods.But Homeland Security head Jeh Johnson says that proposal does not reflect reality.

 
“There is not one neighborhood or ghetto or city that one could encircle or surveil, to surveil American Muslims, contrary to some of the political rhetoric that is out there, some of the overheated political rhetoric out there.”
 
While last year's mass shooting in San Bernardino, California, renewed concerns about the threat of homegrown terrorism, Johnson said Homeland Security's efforts to prevent more attacks largely have been met with cooperation in the American Muslim community.
 
"The overwhelming, overwhelming majority of American Muslims, including those who serve in our United States military, by the way, and in our government, are patriotic, dedicated people who love this country and who want to help us with public safety and secure our homeland because they know it's their homeland too."
 
Johnson also dismissed criticism that Homeland Security's counter-terrorism efforts target American Muslims.
 
“The Islamic State, which is the most visible, most prominent and probably the most dangerous terrorist organization that we face right now, is targeting American Muslims.We must respond in countering that effort as a matter of homeland security.
 
Johnson ended his speech with a call for cooperation and bridge-building, saying American Muslim communities should not be isolated or vilified.
