Crime Break the Chain Protect the American Public By Matt O'Brien

Three people were injured after the attacker's pipe bomb partially exploded.

Acting U.S. Attorney Joon H. Kim says the defendant, Akayed Ullah, will have a hospital court proceeding later Tuesday or Wednesday. The diversity visa program that allowed him to emigrate to the United States should end, Mr. Cissna said.

"First and foremost. America must fix its lax immigration system, which allows far too many risky, inadequately vetted people to access our country". CBS News confirmed via the Department of Homeland Security that Ullah arrived in the 2011 through "extended family chain migration".

The alleged perpetrator behind a Monday bombing attack in New York City benefited from chain migration.

Mayor advised New Yorkers to feel secure saying, "There are also no credible and specific threats against New York City at this time".

"We're going to end both of them: The lottery system and chain migration".

Ullah was one of 141,501 immigrants who have entered the US from Bangladesh through chain migration since 2005, according to the White House.

After mass shootings in Las Vegas in October and then at a Texas church in November elicited calls for gun controls, Trump and Sanders said it was too soon to talk policy in the immediate aftermath of the tragedy.

During the White House briefing, Sanders referred to President Donald Trump's policy to end so-called "chain-migration", a term the administration has used to describe family-reunification-based immigration laws.

But every time a Muslim strikes, the White House predictably claims vindication for its hardline approach to immigration.

It's the second time in six weeks that someone connected to the visa lottery has been accused of a terrorist attack in NY, and the White House said that is more reason Congress should join President Trump's call to end the lottery and curtail extended family chain migration.

Akayed's family in the USA said in a statement that it was heartbroken and deeply saddened by the suffering the attack has caused.

Ullah partially detonated an improvised explosive device underground near a Port Authority bus terminal.

"Congress must also act on my Administration's other proposals to enhance domestic security, including increasing the number of Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers, enhancing the arrest and detention authorities for immigration officers, and ending fraud and abuse in our immigration system", he continued.

Trump is renewing his criticisms of USA immigration policy after Monday's explosion in a passageway in the sprawling Times Square subway station.

Initial reports suggested up to 60 were injured - with one man dead - reports have since said the figure is closer to 18. However, "transit through Austria to the south and southeast regions is now negatively impacted", it added.

President Donald Trump is reiterating his call to overhaul the nation's immigration system in the aftermath of the blast in a New York City subway passageway.
