Albert Ford was quoted in a USA Today article about the wide variety of ISIS supporters in America:

President Trump’s travel ban would not have prevented any of the lethal attacks, including the mass shooting by Omar Mateen at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando or either of the recent attacks in New York, experts say.
“I think this is indicative of the issue,” said Albert Ford, one of the authors of a study at New America that examined terrorism in America since 9/11. “It’s not 100% a U.S. problem, but to say it’s 100% an outside problem is just not accurate. This radicalization is happening in large part within our borders."
