LaBoyteaux 2020 – Terror Attack in NY

My thoughts are with the families of the victims and the injured in yesterday’s terrorist attack in New York. We should all take a moment to consider their loss.

Terrorists can come from many places and we must understand that ISIS is a corrupt and violent ideology which can spread through the internet as well as international travel.  In addition to military suppression of terrorist groups in the Middle East and support for the people and legitimate governments in these countries, we must strengthen our efforts at home.

Persons who come from any region of the world where terrorists are active, must have a demonstrated family or business reason to travel to the United States and be very thoroughly checked out before coming here.

We do not need to call out anyone by race, creed or national origin.  Simply, if you come from any region of the world where terrorists are active, travel to the United States is tightly controlled and all visitors are very thoroughly vetted.

We also need to be real in understanding that not all threats are foreign. There is no way the government can keep track of all the crazies and unbalanced individuals can radicalize quickly. IF YOU SEE SOMETHING, OR HEAR SOMETHING, CONTACT THE POLICE. SAY SOMETHING.
