President Donald Trump has asked Congress to end “chain migration” and fix the lax migration system to provide security to Americans, a day after an ISIS-inspired Bangladeshi man triggered a blast at a busy metro station in New York City.
The bomber, Akayed Ullah had a pipe bomb device strapped to his body with the plan to kill and injure as many innocent people as possible. However, the device malfunctioned and prematurely exploded between two subway platforms near the Port Authority, injuring four people including the suspect, the police reported. it was only through the bravery of four NYC Police Officers that Mr. Ullah was unable to complete his murderous mission.
“The attempted mass murder attack in New York City, which is the second terror attack in the city over the last two months, once again highlights the urgent need for Congress to enact legislative reforms to protect the American people,” Trump said. The suspect reportedly came to the US from Bangladesh seven years ago on a family visa.
“First and foremost, America must fix the lax immigration system, which allows far too many dangerous and inadequately vetted people to access our country. The terror suspect came here via the extended family chain migration system, which is incompatible with our national security,” President Trump added.
President Trump went on to explain how the extended-family chain migration is a system he is seeking to end. He stated how it allows families to sponsor numerous relatives to come to the country. “Congress must end chain migration,” he said a media report.
However, there are those who oppose the idea of stopping this form of immigration and will surely fight President Trump in his quest to protect the American people from those who wish to do us harm. With the hostile climate today around the world, we need to stop inviting those who do not have a desire to become an American, but, in fact, have hate in their hearts.
