  • Latin America News – Victims Of NYC Terror Attack Stretch To South America

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Wednesday that President Donald Trump's comments about sending the NY terror suspect to the prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, had only signaled his support, not indicated that he was advocating for doing that.

But Mr Trump tweeted that the judicial process at the Cuban detention centre takes longer than the federal court system.

President Donald Trump said he would be open to transferring Saipov to the military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, where other suspects including alleged September 11 plotters are held.

Federal prosecutors brought terrorism charges earlier Wednesday against 29-year-old Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov, saying he was spurred to attack Tuesday by the Islamic State group's online calls to action. "There is also something appropriate about keeping him in the home of the disgusting crime he committed".

Trump tweeted hours after Saipov was charged that he "SHOULD GET DEATH PENALTY!".

The latest threat from Trump comes after he recently stated he would consider sending the Manhattan terror suspect Sayfullo Saipov to Guantanamo Bay.

They were also interviewing acquaintances and family, including his wife, who according to a law enforcement official was co-operative and claimed she did not know about the attack beforehand.




Capitalizing on the opportunity, Trump attacked pro-immigration political opponents, including New York Senator, Chuck Schumer.

During his remarks, Trump commented on the recent terror attack in New York City and discussed changing US immigration laws to possibly prevent future attacks.

"Saipov", he said "could potentially get the death penalty".

Trump responded to the attack by pledging to increase vetting of immigrants entering the U.S. He also promised Wednesday to end the visa program that allowed the suspect into the country.

He was in a wheelchair, having been shot in the abdomen when apprehended by police.

Trump's press secretary stated that the administration considers Saipov to be an "enemy combatant", which would subject Saipov to harsher prosecution and enhanced methods of interrogation.

No one detained on U.S. soil has ever been sent to the Guantanamo Bay detention camp, located on a USA military base in Cuba, and no suspected terrorists captured overseas have been transferred there since 2008.
