Trump calls for tougher immigration controls after NY attack

Trump calls for tougher immigration controls after NY attack

He added that he has ordered Homeland Security to step up "extreme vetting" of immigrants, like New York's terror suspect.

President Donald Trump on Wednesday spoke about tightening the already "extreme vetting process" to those who would like to migrate or travel to the U.S. after NY witnessed its worst terror attack since 9/11 that killed eight people and injured 11 others.

"We have to get much tougher, much smarter, and much less politically correct".

It is thought that the devastating attack which killed eight innocent people will further intensify the Presidents plans to introduce the strict new program which he has been campaigning for since the past year.

The president and Congress are reacting to Tuesday's deadly terrorist attack in New York City.

One of those was Tashfeen Malik, who helped her US -born husband kill 14 people in the San Bernardino, Calif., attack in 2015. White House officials did not comment directly on the investigation. The US termed the incident as an "act of terrorism".

Trump said Tuesday following the shooting that the U.S. will "be talking about gun laws as time goes by" in the wake of the Las Vegas shooting, the nation's deadliest in modern history.

Of 25 terror attacks in the United States linked to or inspired by Islamic extremist groups over the last 20 years, only two perpretrators were from countries which would be included in President Trump's travel ban, and even then they may not have been banned from entering the United States due to their country of residence at the time.

"We want a merit-based program, where people come into the country based on merit", Trump said.

First political blame from Trump: Follows up with tweets the morning of November 1, blaming Democratic New York Sen.

Following an Isis-related attack on London Bridge that left eight dead in June, Trump published a highly charged tweet mocking London Mayor Sadiq Khan for saying that there was "no reason to be alarmed". NY police say the truck driver had been planning the attack for weeks and did it "in the name of IS". "Enough!" he said in another tweet.

A leading USA political commentator has said a travel ban or increased vetting would not have stopped the suspect in the New York City attack. The travel dictat was criticised by many and was deemed a "Muslim ban". "We are not going to be deterred".
