Trump Says New York Suspect's Visa Was a 'Chuck Schumer Beauty'

Trump Says New York Suspect's Visa Was a 'Chuck Schumer Beauty'

Civil rights advocates are pushing back against President Donald Trump's knee-jerk reaction to Tuesday's attack in New York City and for saying he would "certainly consider" sending Sayfullo Saipov, the suspect being held for the murder of eight people, to the US offshore prison at Guant√°namo Bay.

Graham said he had spoken to Republican President Donald Trump about the issue and, "I think he's inclined to be aggressive, at least I hope he is". "Send him to Gitmo", Trump replied.

"We also have to come up with a punishment that is far quicker and far greater in the punishment these animals are getting right now", Trump said.

Officials say the 29-year-old suspect, Sayfullo Saipov, killed eight people and wounded 13 others when he drove a rented pickup truck along a bike path in lower Manhattan.

"I am going to ask Congress to immediately initiate work to get rid of this program", he said, adding: "Diversity lottery - sounds nice". "We're so politically correct that we're afraid to do anything".

According to the State Department, Saipov, a legal permanent US resident, immigrated from his native Uzbekistan in March 2010 through the Diversity Immigrant Visa program, which is created to increase the number of immigrants from countries with low rates of immigration to the USA through a lottery system.

Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., also called for trying Saipov at Guantanamo, according to the Huffington Post.

In a statement, McCain said the Trump administration should inform Congress as soon as possible about how it planned to treat Saipov.

The president wants to use this attack as an excuse to limit immigration. "Because what we have right now is a joke and it's a laughingstock". Detainees have been held for years without being charged with any crimes, with former President George W. Bush assigning them the label "enemy combatants"-which negates any protections they would have under the Geneva Conventions". The President is citing the attack in NY as reason to amend the almost three decade old law.

But Obama sought to close the center, did not send prisoners there and sought to try suspects in criminal courts.

The President threatened to send suspect Sayfullo Saipov to Guantanamo Bay.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said he, too, believed Saipov should be held as an enemy combatant.
