Vastavam web: US President Donald Trump has asked Congress to end the “chain migration” and fix the “lax” immigration system to protect Americans, a day after an ISIS- inspired Bangladeshi-origin man triggered a blast at a busy metro station in New York City.Akayed Ullah, the 27-year-old suspected bomber, had wires and a pipe bomb strapped to his body. The device prematurely exploded between two subway platforms near Port Authority, America’s largest bus terminal yesterday, injuring four persons including the suspect, police said.”First and foremost… America must fix its lax immigration system, which allows far too many dangerous, inadequately vetted people to access our country.

“The terror suspect entered our country through extended-family chain migration, which is incompatible with national security,” Trump said. He added that the suspect had entered the country through “extended-family chain migration,” a system the president is seeking to end that allows families to sponsor relatives to come to the United States.”The terrible harm that this flawed system inflicts on America’s security and economy has long been clear. I am determined to improve our immigration system to put our country and our people first,” Trump said.

Trump said those convicted of engaging in acts of terror deserve the strongest penalty allowed by law, including the death penalty in appropriate cases.America should always stand firm against terrorism and extremism, ensuring that our great institutions can address all evil acts of terror, he said.”Additionally, this attack comes as our coalition continues to make great gains against ISIS. Still, there is more work to be done on the ground in the shrinking ISIS- controlled areas, and the president’s plan to annihilate ISIS is moving forward,” Sanders said.

She called for destroying the “evil ideology” that is behind ISIS and attacks like the one in New York yesterday.Noting that the president’s policy has called for an end to chain migration and if that had been in place, that would have prevented the individual (from Bangladesh) from coming to the United States, she said Trump is aggressively going to continue to push forth responsible immigration reform.
