Statement from Independent, Reform & Upstate Jobs Candidate Martin Babinec on NYC Attack

“The bombing in New York City over the weekend is a stark reminder that our nation and our state remain under constant threat of terror attack. We must all remain vigilant and say a prayer for our first responders, National Guard and State Police who have been dispatched to New York City to help bolster security.

The fact is we were lucky the blast in New York City didn’t result in the loss of life. As more details have become available, it’s clear we have a lot more work to do to strengthen our intelligence, secure our borders, improve our immigration screening process and intervene again the radicalization of Americans. Finally, we must not shrink from calling our enemy by their name – radical Islamic terrorists must be eliminated.”
