Officers Who Stopped New York Pipe Bomb Suspect Hailed as Heroes

Officers Who Stopped New York Pipe Bomb Suspect Hailed as Heroes Officers Who Stopped New York Pipe Bomb Suspect Hailed as Heroes

Four police officers with the Port Authority of NY and New Jersey who were first on-scene after a man partially detonated a bomb in a commuter passageway stopped him as he fumbled with his cell phone.

The explosion occurred in a heavily-trafficked underground walkway in the middle of the morning rush hour. Yet the president's reaction contrasts with his response after violence involving American nationals.

Trump said in a statement the suspect had entered the United States on a family immigrant visa, benefiting from a U.S. policy known as chain migration, which the president said "is incompatible with national security". Immigration officials say he's a lawful permanent resident who came to the US from Bangladesh in 2011 with his family.

Trump says that program "is incompatible with national security".

It has identified the suspect as 27-year-old Akayed Ullah.

"A terrorist is a terrorist irrespective of his or her ethnicity or religion, and must be brought to justice", the embassy said in a statement.

Ullah, who lives in Brooklyn, came to the US from Bangladesh nearly seven years ago and had been licensed to drive a livery cab between 2012 and 2015, according to law enforcement officials and NYC Taxi and Limousine Commission.

Even though Ullah pledged allegiance to ISIS, law enforcement officials said as of now there is no known linkage between him and the terrorist outfit.

The person was arrested and has non-life-threatening injuries.

Bangladesh's government condemned an attack on New York City's subway system, as it emerged that the suspect is an immigrant from the South Asian nation. "The terrorists will not win".

President Donald Trump responded to Monday's failed New York City subway bombing in an early evening statement, calling on Congress to pass his immigration agenda. Sources say the device was built using a 12-inch long pipe, black powder rigged with a 9 volt battery and a Christmas lights wire, and filled with nails. It did not have enough explosive material in it to make pipe pieces into potentially fatal shrapnel.

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie said his state's law enforcement officials are coordinating with their federal and NY counterparts, and he directed New Jersey police to step up security at major transportation hubs.

It happened just five weeks after another ISIS-inspired terror attack on Halloween on Manhattan's West Side that left eight people dead and a dozen injured. The American immigration system allows citizens to apply for certain relatives - spouses, children, parents, siblings and their spouses and minor children - to be allowed to come and live in the U.S. The visas fall under different preferences, or categories; siblings of U.S. citizens come in the fourth preference, the F4, and their children come under F43s.

"We know that the President's policy calls for an end to chain migration, which is what this individual came to the United States through, and had his policy been in place, then that attacker would not have been allowed to come into the country", Sanders said.
