ISIS is losing its influence in the U.S. as fewer American are traveling overseas to fight alongside extremists in the Middle East, FBI Director James Comey said.

In 2014 and the first half of 2015, the FBI saw between 6 and 10 Americans traveling to the Middle East or trying to join ISIS every month. Now Comey said the number is about one per month, Fox News reports. 

“There’s no doubt that something has happened that is lasting, in terms of the attractiveness of the nightmare which is the Islamic State to people from the United States,” he told reporters during a wide-ranging round-table discussion Wednesday.

The FBI said ISIS’ ability to inspire “troubled souls” remains a constant concern, but federal authorities are beginning to a downward trend.
