NYC suspect should be held as enemy combatant, Graham tells Trump

Civil rights advocates are pushing back against President Donald Trump's knee-jerk reaction to Tuesday's attack in New York City and for saying he would "certainly consider" sending Sayfullo Saipov, the suspect being held for the murder of eight people, to the USA offshore prison at Guantánamo Bay. Saipov, an immigrant from Uzbekistan, had left a handwritten note showing an allegiance to ISIS.

"We also have to come up with punishment that is far quicker and far greater than the punishment these animals are getting right now", the president said.

"We need quick justice and we need strong justice", he said.

In no uncertain terms, the Center for Constitutional Rights, which has defended Guantánamo detainees, denounced President Donald Trump's suggestion that he would "consider" sending the suspect to the prison.

Trump spoke after Sen.

In July, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions travelled to Cuba to gain "an up-to-date understanding of current operations" at Guantanamo Bay, calling the prison he has called a "perfectly acceptable" place to detain new terrorism suspects as opposed to holding them in the U.S. and having his own Justice Department try them in civilian courts. John McCain, R-Ariz., and Sen. "He's a terrorist, he should be kept there". "The last thing he should hear is his Miranda rights", Graham told Fox News.

"Under the law of war, an enemy combatant is not entitled to Miranda rights, or to be represented by counsel, when the interrogation process is created to gather intelligence", Graham said at a news conference in the Capitol.

According to the New York Times, no one arrested on American soil has ever been sent to Guantánamo Bay. He reiterated that push in a Cabinet meeting, saying he would "ask Congress to immediately initiate work to get rid of this programme".

"Diversity lottery." Trump said.

"Diversity lottery-sounds nice", the president said in a press briefing.

Trump had called the diversity lottery "a Chuck Schumer beauty", a reference to the Democratic Senate Minority Leader from NY who supported the bill establishing the program in 1990.
