The month of October ended with another radical Islamic terrorist attack in Manhattan, New York only blocks from the World Trade Center. Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov, a 29 year old Islamic Uzbek man, used a Home Depot truck and drove it into a bike path Tuesday, killing 8 innocent people and injuring 12 more. Inside the truck a note was found saying he pledged to ISIS and that “ISIS would live forever.” Americans are fed up with this evil insanity and thankfully we elected a president that feels the same way!
We must not allow ISIS to return, or enter, our country after defeating them in the Middle East and elsewhere. Enough!

I have just ordered Homeland Security to step up our already Extreme Vetting Program. Being politically correct is fine, but not for this!

Since the September 11th attacks in New York, Americans have been living in a new age where Islamic radicals continue to plot, plan, and try to kill innocent Americans in the name of “Allah.” Saipov, married father of three, came to the US in 2010 and is a native from Uzbekistan legally. He worked as an Uber driver and a truck driver, and has lived in Florida, Ohio, and recently New Jersey. This muslim immigrant to the US was seemingly living the American dream, but instead decided to pledge to ISIS and murder innocent Americans.
“The threat to our nation and our American way of life has not diminished. In fact, the threat has metastasized and decentralized, and the risk is as threatening today as it was that September morning almost 16 years ago.
As I speak these words the FBI has open terrorism investigations in all 50 states , and since 2013, there have been 37  ISIS-linked plots to attack our country.
This is all bad news, but it gets much worse. Experts estimate that perhaps 10,000  citizens of Europe have joined the caliphate in Syria and Iraq. Thousands more are from nations in Asia, Africa and the Western Hemisphere. They have learned how to make IEDs, employ drones to drop ordnance, and acquired experience on the battlefield that by all reports they are bringing back home.
And as the coalition we lead wins against what are best described as conventional-terrorist formations in the caliphate, the expectation is that many of these “holy warriors” will survive departing for their home countries to wreak murderous havoc in Europe, Asia, the Maghreb, the Caribbean and the United States. And because many are citizens of countries in our Visa Waiver Program, they can more easily travel to the United States which makes us a prime target for their exported violence.”
President Trump is right, we must not allow ISIS to enter our country and we need extreme vetting. Every American who loves this country and believes in our values and our freedom should stand behind President Trump’s words. Any Islamic community that is truly peace loving, not radical, and good American people should cooperate with officials from the US government and the Department of Homeland Security to rid this country of radical Islamic terrorist without exception. If there were people in my church saying or planning that they wanted to hurt or harm others in the name of God, I would turn them in!! So would any good American!!
This should not happen and it can be stopped if liberal judges would not block orders to implement extreme vetting of immigrants from Islamic countries. There needs to be cooperation from everyone on both sides of the aisle to address the real issue and that is radical Islam. In every country where radical Islam exist, there are a percentage of muslims who commit acts of terror on innocent people. It is not insensitive or wrong to investigate the communities where these terrorist could be hiding. It is not wrong or hurtful to institute extreme vetting for people with Muslim origins that want to enter this country. Political correctness does nothing but hide the truth and the real issue.
We, the people, demand radical Islamic terrorist be stopped!! This should not happen, ever, and we pray that our government can do it’s job to stop it!!
Praying for the victims and their families of the vicious islamic terror attack in Manhattan!! May God heal your wounds, your hearts, and your loss!! We stand with you and will never forget!!
