In the wake of the tragic bombing that occurred in Boston last week, the discussion over terrorism on U.S. soil has re-ignited. Neugebauer said that terrorist threats have been coming in on a daily basis long before the Boston bombing. However, this event will certainly put a new light on the debate, as well as other debates in Washington, such as immigration.

“We’re right in the middle of this immigration debate, how did these boys come to the U.S! And one of them recently became a U.S. citizen? Where did these substances come from? The older brother traveled back to Russia? I mean, it’s going to bring a lot of issues that we’ve been discussing. And people are now beginning to see why we’ve been having some of the debate we’ve been having is these threats are real.”

Although one of the suspects in the bombing has been caught and life is slowly returning to normal in Boston, there are still many questions that need to be answered. Neugebauer said that questions such as how these bombers got into the country so easily, or whether or not to call the suspect an “enemy combatant,” cannot be answered right away. However, he added he wants to see these questions answered as well, and that what may be more important than answering the questions is how we get the answers to those questions.

You can listen to Congressman Randy Neugebauer Mondays at 7:35 during Lubbock’s First News on NewsTalk 790 KFYO.
