Following the NYC terror attack, reports have revealed that the vehicle used to plow into a gathered crowd in the bike lane, was actually a rented Home Depot service truck. As a result, the co-founder of the multi-million-dollar label sent lefties a clear message.
After the attack, Ken Langone had an interview with Fox News and opened up on the issue of immigration and the policies that still won’t allow any handling of it, thanks to the liberals.
“Nothing proves to me more than this experience that we need to know who’s here with us,” the billionaire businessman explained.
“How the hell can we just say, ‘Come on in and we don’t care how you got in here and we don’t care where you’re from or what you did or what your background was’?” he continued.
The company logos found themselves on the sides of a heavy-duty pickup truck, which penetrated a crowd and hit a school bus shortly after. In the attack, eight people lost their lives, while over fifteen suffered injuries.
The attacker, who was immediately taken in and identified as Muslim immigrant from Uzbekistan called Sayfullo Saipov, remains behind bars. As we learned from reports, the man came to America on a “diversity visa.” Authorities managed to dig out that he was also connected to the infamous “Islamic State” terrorist group.
The fact that this man was allowed to cross over to the ‘land of dreams’ despite his shady background, speaks volumes of the administration that ruled the country at the time.
“I’m not arguing pro or against immigration. My grandparents came here as immigrants. I think virtually everybody’s ancestors came here as immigrants,” Langone said.
“We’re a country of immigrants – but, they all came legitimately and we all knew where they came from and what they wanted to do,” he elaborated.
“This underscores the need for us to be diligent and have a program and have an effort where people have to let us know who they are and that they came in here legitimately. Why have borders, otherwise? I don’t understand this,” he explained.
The Fox panel suggested there should be certain measures which could sanction men like him.
“Look… there’s nuts in the world,” Ken Langone admitted. “You know, we have mass murders, remember [Ted Kaczynski], the guy that was the Unabomber – we have enough screwballs in America without importing them,” he explained.
What Langone proposed next, was a simple example of brilliance.
“We ought to know who’s coming to America, we ought to know something about their background, like we do with all legitimate immigrants. And, this argument that we should look the other way with illegitimate immigrants is nuts,” he declared.
It is crucial that we pay attention to the clear issues that deteriorate the country, not causing worry among liberals, who are actually rather excited about what’s happening at the moment.
I mean, weren’t they the ones who wanted immigrants in the US? So, why are they a little afraid right now?
