Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Tuesday called on Congress to reform federal immigration laws in the wake of Monday’s attempted terror attack in New York City.
“[I]t is also up to Congress to improve our laws. We cannot wait any longer. As yesterday’s events showed us in the starkest terms: The failures of our immigration system are a national security issue,” Sessions said in a speech in Baltimore.
Sessions cited data showing that 75 percent of the 500 people prosecuted since the 9/11 for terrorism-related offenses were born outside the U.S., and said President Trump is “exactly right to call attention to these issues and to how they affect our security.”
