WCPO 9 Cincinnati provides a bigger profile of Artan’s life. Watch the report here:
This attack reminds us we must remain vigilant, but it also shows we must bolster our immigration and refugee policies.
Our government’s first priority should be protecting its own citizens and with this attack they have failed to do that with extremely porous immigration and refugee policies. It’s time for this to change.
