The following is an excerpt from CRISTINA SILVA | September 19, 2016 | ibtimes.com |
Republican Donald Trump and other conservative leaders sought Monday to link a series of bombing attacks in the New York City area to the Obama administration's Syrian refugee policy. Trump tweeted Monday that thousands of refugees entering the U.S. from Syria are poorly vetted" just hours after FBI officials said they were looking for Ahmad Khan Rahami, a U.S. citizen originally from Afghanistan, in relation to the attacks over the weekend that left dozens injured.
The weekend of terrorism began when officials found a bomb near a race course in New Jersey. Hours later, an explosion in a Manhattan neighborhood left 29 people injured. Officials later found several explosive devices Sunday night near a train station in Elizabeth, New Jersey. No injuries were reported, the Associated Press reported.
