Donald Trump on Monday called for the federal government to release “the full and complete immigration histories” of anyone “implicated” in terrorist activity since the 9/11 attacks.
“President Obama must release the full and complete immigration histories of all individuals implicated in terrorist activity of any kind since 9/11,” Trump said in prepared remarks delivered at Saint Anselm College.
He added: “The public has a right to know how these people got here. We have to screen applicants to know whether they are affiliated with, or support, radical groups and beliefs.”
Trump’s comments came on the heels of the worst terror attack on American soil since 9/11. In the deadliest shooting in US history, a lone gunman opened fire at an Orlando LGBTQ nightclub, killing 49 and wounding scores more.
