Tragedy struck New York on Oct. 31 when Uzbekistan native Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov used a rented Home Depot truck to plow into bicyclists and pedestrians on a busy city sidewalk. The attack killed eight while injuring many.

Once again President Trump took to Twitter, first expressing his appreciation for the first responders, but then saying “NYC terrorist was happy as he asked to hang ISIS flag in his hospital room. He killed 8 people, badly injured 12. SHOULD GET DEATH PENALTY!”

Regardless of political opinion, the tweet irritated many as “this was an act of terror, and a particularly cowardly act of terror aimed at innocent civilians, aimed at people going about their lives who had no idea what was about to hit them,” New York Mayor Bill de Blasio said.

With the attacker being foreign, many questions have risen regarding immigration and the tightening down of Homeland Security.

I believe that there truly was no way to prevent this tragedy with stricter immigration because of the fact that Saipov came to the United States seven years prior.

The way to react should be a continuous expression of unity.

“From our side, we are ready to use all our power and resources to cooperate in the investigation of this terrorist act” Uzbek President Shavkat Mirziyoyev wrote in a letter of condolence to President Trump.

Many countries have reached out and declared that they too believe this violence needs to end. Therefore, instead of acting out of anger and wrath we must act as a united front against those wanting to inflict terror on the United States.
