Trump calls for tougher immigration controls after NY attack

Trump calls for tougher immigration controls after NY attack

Authorities said police shot Saipov at the scene, took him into custody, and transported him to New York's Bellevue Hospital for treatment of an injury to the abdomen that was not deemed to be life-threatening.

ISIS supporters have been praising the deadly truck rampage in NY which killed eight people yesterday as law enforcement sources revealed the suspect left behind handwritten notes pledging loyalty to the terror group.

After a white supremacist brutally murdered two heroic men and stabbed the third on a Portland train for protecting two young girls, one of whom was Muslim and the other African American, it took Trump more than two days to acknowledge the attack - and that too after tweeting about everything else under the sun.

The authorities called the incident an "act of terror".

Police closed off streets across the western edge of lower Manhattan along the Hudson River, and officers rushed into the neighborhood just as people were preparing for Halloween festivities, including the big annual parade through Greenwich Village.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told a weird hypothetical story yesterday about buying beers in the hopes of selling tax cuts.

On Wednesday, Trump said he'll ask Congress to "immediately" begin work to terminate the Diversity Immigrant Visa Program, which the alleged attacker used to enter the United States.

Russia Investigation: Republicans Leaking Info on Trump Dossier, Attorney Says
But in May 2016 - as Trump neared the top seat in the GOP's run for the White House - the Beacon wrapped up the investigation. Last week Trump labeled the deal, which gave Russia 20 per cent of the U.S.'s uranium to Russia, 'Watergate modern age'.

On Twitter, Trump wrote that he had instructed the Homeland Security Service to step up the program to screen foreigners wishing to enter the United States.

The tweets earned Trump a rebuke from British Prime Minister Theresa May, who said it is "never helpful for anyone to speculate on what is an ongoing investigation".

Officials reported that the suspect drove a rented truck down onto the pavement and down a cycle path for several blocks, before crashing into a school bus and exiting the vehicle holding what was later identified as a pellet gun and a paintball gun.

Cuomo ordered increased security at New York's airports, bridges, tunnels, and mass transit systems, and directed that the lights on the spire of 1 World Trade Center be lit in red, white, and blue in honor of "freedom and democracy".

A spokesperson for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security called the incident an "apparent act of terrorism". The New York Democrat said: "First and foremost, our thoughts are with the victims and their families". After surgery, he is in critical condition.

Trump's reaction to the attack in NY was similar to his response to the killing of 49 people in a nightclub shooting in Orlando in June 2016 by a shooter who pledged allegiance to ISIS.
