Last week, a husband and wife allegedly killed 14 people and injured 21 more in what is now being investigated as a terrorist attack.

The wife, Tashfeen Malik, reportedly pledged allegiance to the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) on Facebook. It’s now believed her husband, Syed Rizwan Farook, did, as well.

The shooting has a set off a fresh round of debates in Congress about the fight against ISIS, gun control and visa programs. Malik came to the United States on a fiancé visa.
