Foreign Terrorist Organizations

Foreign Terrorist Organizations (FTOs) are foreign organizations that are designated by the Secretary

of State in accordance with section 219 of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), as amended.

FTO designations play a critical role in our fight against terrorism and are an effective means of

curtailing support for terrorist activities and pressuring groups to get out of the terrorism business.
