ISIS is becoming increasingly adept at recruiting teens from all around the globe causing concern for parents near and far.

Today Congressman Will Hurd joined us on the Closer Look to talk about his experience as an undercover CIA agent dealing with terroristic organizations and the overall threat ISIS poses.
