Trump says would 'certainly consider' sending NY suspect to Guantanamo

"And we have to get much less politically correct".

Trump quoted a guest who appeared on Fox and Friends Wednesday morning and said Schumer, who was born and raised in Brooklyn, was "importing Europe's problems". "I would certainly consider that".

Trump's declaration that he would consider throwing Saipov into Guantanamo came as a response to a question by CBS News' Major Garrett. John McCain (R-Ariz.), pushing for the terror suspect to be sent to Gitmo and be treated as an enemy combatant.

According to the State Department, Saipov, a legal permanent USA resident, immigrated from his native Uzbekistan in March 2010 through the Diversity Immigrant Visa program, which is created to increase the number of immigrants from countries with low rates of immigration to the US through a lottery system.

"We will stop this crazinesss!"

In the face of Republican opposition, Obama never succeeded and Trump has taken a different track, saying as a candidate that he wants to load up Guantanamo with "some bad dudes". "I'm going to ask Congress to immediately initiate or get rid of this program". Sounds nice. It's not nice.

"And we do not want to chain migration where somebody like him ultimately will be allowed to bring in many, many members of his family, and we don't want that".

Speaking generally, Trump said US immigration laws are "a joke" and "a laughingstock". As such, the NY terror suspect should be held and interrogated - thoroughly, responsibly, and humanely - as an enemy combatant consistent with the Law of Armed Conflict.

Republican South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham also echoed similar sentiments. He should not be read Miranda Rights, as enemy combatants are not entitled to them.

"It is not OK with me, and is not OK with the Constitution for the president or someone in government to decide you don't have constitutional rights", Napolitano replied.
