Treat New York terrorist as enemy combatant, say some U.S. lawmakers

President Donald Trump

Attorneys from the organization said on Wednesday, "Guantánamo Bay is and always has been a prison exclusively for Muslims, which is undoubtedly the only reason Donald Trump made the idiotic suggestion to send Sayfullo Saipov there".

"We need quick justice and we need strong justice-much quicker and much stronger than we have right now", Trump told reporters Wednesday.

"We must not consider these attacks on our homeland in isolation, but rather recognize them for what they are: acts of war", he said.

Trump also said of Fed Chair Janet Yellen, "I think she's excellent", but did not say she would be his choice when he names a Federal Reserve Chair tomorrow.

Graham called on Trump to hold Sayfullo Saipov without access to an attorney so he can be questioned by USA intelligence about the Halloween attack.

The White House on Wednesday said it sees the perpetrator of a deadly attack in NY an "enemy combatant", opening the door to his detention without normal rights. John McCain, R-Ariz., and Sen. "He's a terrorist, he should be kept there".

The President's call to handle suspected attacker Sayfullo Saipov outside of the criminal justice system, combined with his vows to pursue more stringent immigration measures and dissolve a popular visa programme, suggested Mr Trump plans to respond forcefully to the worst major terrorist attack in New York City since 9/11 - and in a way that echoes former President George W Bush's fiercely contested response to the 2001 attacks.

"We are so politically correct, we are afraid to do anything", Trump said. "No wonder" attacks take place, he said. This attack was the worst terrorist incident in NY since September 11, 2001. But so far, the president has not sent anyone to the military prison, and no new detainee has arrived there since 2008.

Supporters say it allows the authorities to detain potentially risky terror suspects.

The legal expert added that while the suspect is "horrible for what he did", if the United States sends him to Cuba, it will be "unfair, unlawful, and unconstitutional".

"Sending Saipov to Guantánamo or treating him as an "enemy combatant" would violate due process and the rule of law", Romero said.
