Send The NYC Terrorist To Guantanamo Bay

Send The NYC Terrorist To Guantanamo Bay

"I would certainly consider that, yes". "Transferring the suspect from NY would raise a host of constitutional and legal issues", the Times reports, "and it was not clear that Mr. Trump actually would follow through on the idea since his comment was in reaction to a question rather than part of his prepared remarks".

Trump's comment angered ThinkProgress' Elham Khatami, who wondered why the president did not say the same of the Las Vegas mass shooter, who killed 58 people last month.

The President described the suspect in custody, Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov, as an "animal", and hit out at the program Saipov reportedly used in 2010 to come to the USA, from Uzbekistan.

"I am today starting the process of terminating the diversity lottery program", Trump said.

"Diversity lottery-sounds nice", the president said in a press briefing.

He called on Congress to draft up legislation formally unwinding the more than 20-year-old State Department program, which offers 50,000 visas every year to individuals from countries with historically low immigration rates to the US. But during the election, Trump said he had different priorities. The White House has yet to make a final determination, however, she noted.

Mr Trump said the U.S. needed "far greater" punishment for such "animals". Attorneys from the organization said on Wednesday, "Guantánamo Bay is and always has been a prison exclusively for Muslims, which is undoubtedly the only reason Donald Trump made the idiotic suggestion to send Sayfullo Saipov there".

Trump called for "quicker and stronger" justice for terrorists.

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), who has previously been critical of Guantanamo, also called for Saipov to be held in military detention.

"Take him to Guantanamo", Mr McCain told reporters. "There's enough evidence to believe that he qualifies as an enemy combatant under the law of war".

The White House on Wednesday said it sees the perpetrator of a deadly attack in NY an "enemy combatant", opening the door to his detention without normal rights. Since 2008, no one has been sent there at all.
