Jeff Sessions: New York bomber shows 'we cannot wait any longer' for immigration reform

Via Billy

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.”
