U.S. Senator Ben Sasse, a member of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, issued the following statement regarding the breaking news that Salah Abdeslam was captured today by law enforcement in Brussels. 

"The capture of Salah Abdeslam is an important development, especially for those hurt or killed in the Paris attacks. However, the civilizational challenge of violent Islam continues. It is an important victory but we cannot forget this decades-long fight will outlast this manhunt."
