The FBI Director has some positive news in the fight against ISIS.

FOX's Jon Decker has more from the White House:

FBI Director James Comey told reporters that ISIS is finding it more difficult to recruit new members from the U.S.

Comey said that between six and ten Americans a month in 2014 and the first half of 2015 traveled to the Middle East or tried to go there to join ISIS. However, that number has dwindled down to one per month since last summer.

Comey didn't say why there was a downturn, but the FBI has worked aggressively in the last year to identify and intercept Americans who wanted to reach Syria. The FBI acknowledged that the terrorist groups ability to inspire new members remains a persistent concern.

At the White House, Jon Decker, FOX News.
