NY attack : President Trump orders extreme vetting of travellers

NY attack : President Trump orders extreme vetting of travellers

Saipov was reportedly shot by police in NY and was taken to hospital for treatment, and in the wake of the incident, US President Donald Trump called for Homeland Security to increase its vetting process. The travel dictat was criticised by many and was deemed a "Muslim ban". And the White House confirmed Trump's tweet that the assailant, Sayfullo Saipov, entered the United States through the Diversity Visa Lottery Program, which awards visas to vetted individuals randomly selected from countries where there is a low rate of immigration to the US.

Republican leaders in Congress said the government should employ similar tactics to ensure that Tuesday's truck attack in New York City is not repeated. Trump tweeted shortly after the attack. In addition to the eight fatalities, 13 people were injured, some critically.

"We want a merit-based program, where people come into the country based on merit", Trump said. The officials further added that the contents are being investigated and the document supported the belief the act was terrorism.

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

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio called the attack an "act of terror" but authorities have not definitively linked the suspect who was detained afterward to IS.

The New York Police Department said a driver steered a vehicle on to a bike path just north of Chambers Street in the Tribeca neighborhood and struck multiple people.

The next morning, Trump pressed forward with a laser focus on United States immigration measures, explaining in a tweet that the terrorist suspect "came into our country through what is called the "Diversity Visa Lottery Program" and lobbed an attack at one of New York's own senators, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer. "NOT IN THE U.S.A.!" his tweet read.

Asked on Wednesday during his first on-camera appearance since the attack to explain "how the diversity program fit into (the alleged terrorist's) plot", Trump skipped past the nut of the question.

"We have to come up with punishment that's far quicker and far greater than the punishment these animals are getting right now", he said. The March order suspended the travel of refugees into the USA during the 120-day review, noting that terrorist groups have attempted to infiltrate the country through USRAP.
