But as everyone knows, it would have been racist, bigoted and “Islamophobic” to prevent him from coming here.
“Port Authority Subway Bombing Suspect Faces Court Hearing,” CBS New York, December 13, 2017:
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — The man accused of setting off an explosion in a subway passageway under the Port Authority Bus Terminal is expected to make his first court appearance Wednesday.
Akayed Ullah remains hospitalized with serious burns from the pipe bomb authorities said was strapped to his body.
Federal authorities on Tuesday charged him with providing material support to a terrorist group, use of a weapon of mass destruction and three bomb-related counts. If convicted, he could get up to life in prison.
He is expected to be read his charges Wednesday via a video conference camera, CBS2’s Janelle Burrell reported.
The federal criminal complaint released Tuesday says Ullah told authorities he “did it for the Islamic State” and said he posted on his Facebook account Monday before the attack: “Trump you failed to protect your nation.”
Police said it happened in the subway passageway on West 42nd Street between 7th and 8th avenues, which connects the Port Authority Bus Terminal to the Times Square subway station.
Surveillance video captured the moment when, according to investigators, Ullah set off what law enforcement agents described as a poorly constructed pipe bomb. Investigators say he strapped the device to himself with Velcro and zip ties.
Acting U.S. Attorney Joon Kim said Ullah picked the morning rush on Monday to maximize casualties in his quest “to kill, to maim and to destroy.”
“His motivation,” the prosecutor said, “was not a mystery.”
Authorities said a search of the Bangladeshi immigrant’s apartment turned up bomb-making materials, including screws matching those found at the scene intended as carnage-creating shrapnel.
The complaint says law enforcement also found a passport in Ullah’s name with handwritten notations, including one that read: “O AMERICA, DIE IN YOUR RAGE.”…
