The US Federal Bureau of Investigation has warned of attempts by white supremacists to join the US law enforcement.

Committing acts of violence towards members of minority groups is on their agenda, warned an FBI internal report obtained by ABC News.

The report is titled "Siege-Inspired Actors Very Likely Seek Military and Law Enforcement Affiliation, Increasing Risk of Tradecraft Proliferation and Color of Law Offenses in the FBI San Antonio Area of Responsibility."

It warns that right-wing extremists would "very likely seek affiliation with military and law enforcement entities in furtherance of” their goals.

"In the long term, FBI San Antonio assesses [racially motivated violent extremists] successfully entering military and law enforcement careers almost certainly will gain access to non-public tradecraft and information, enabling them to enhance operational security and develop new tactics in and beyond the FBI San Antonio" region, the document said.

The White supremacists, who enjoy support from former  President Donald Trump, played a key role in the deadly breach of Capitol on a Jan. 6, when the lawmakers were holding a session to certify the victory of President Joe Biden in the 2020 presidential election.

FBI spokesperson Katherine Gulotta said that "FBI field offices routinely share information with their local law enforcement partners to assist in protecting the communities they serve."

White supremacist and kindred hate-based terror attacks have skyrocketed approximately 250 percent in the West since 2014.
