Trump Will Consider Sending NYC Terrorist to Guantanamo Bay

He also pledged to end the green card lottery under which he said the man suspected of killing eight people in Manhattan on Tuesday entered the US. "Look at him as an unlawful enemy combatant, take the time you need to develop who he is, what he did, and why; be ready to present if necessary to a federal judge your case against him being an unlawful enemy combatant". In a statement released Wednesday afternoon, McCain said: "The terrorist attack in NY is the latest brutal, horrific example of the war that radical Islamist extremists are waging against our nation and our way of life". He reiterated that push in a Cabinet meeting, saying he would "ask Congress to immediately initiate work to get rid of this programme". "It's not nice. It's not good".

"We're so politically correct that we're afraid to do anything", he said.

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 U.S., from Uzbekistan.

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

"Send him to Gitmo - I would certainly consider that", Trump told reporters, using a nickname for Guantanamo. "What we have right now is a joke". 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".

Obama's predecessor, Republican President George W. Bush, opened the Guantanamo center after the September 11, 2001, attacks to house and try terrorism suspects in military tribunals. John McCain, R-Ariz., and Sen.

In a news release, South Carolina's senator said the suspect had reportedly left a note pledging allegiance to the Islamic State terror group. In a subsequent statement, Mr McCain joined Mr Graham in arguing Mr Saipov should be treated as an enemy combatant.

"We must not consider these attacks on our homeland in isolation, but rather recognize them for what they are: acts of war", he said. (Schumer, however, was also a player in a 2013 immigration bill that would have eliminated the program).
