Trump fears T&T’s ISIS ties

Trinidad Express:-A New York Times article claims the United States is worried about having Trinidad and Tobago, “ a breeding ground for extremists”, so close to it.

It says the Donald Trump-led administration fears Trinidadian ISIS fighters might return from the Middle East and “attack American diplomatic and oil installations in Trinidad, or even take a three-and-a-half-hour flight to Miami”.
The story, titled “Trying to Stanch Trinidad’s Flow of Young Recruits to ISIS”, was written by journalist Francis Robles, with con­tribution from former Trinidad Guardian news editor Prior Beharry.
The article said the issue of terrorism and foreign fighters was one of the topics Trump discussed with Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley when he called him on Sunday.
“Law enforcement officials in Trinidad and Tobago, a small Carib­bean island nation off the coast of Venezuela, are scrambling to close a pipeline that has sent a steady stream of young Muslims to Syria where they have taken up arms for the Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIL,” it stated.
“In contrast to the laws of many countries, it is not illegal in Trinidad to join the so-called caliphate, though the Government wants to change that,” the story noted.
