After the New York attack: Extreme vetting or racial profiling?

New York is reeling from its most serious terror attack since 9/11. The death toll stands at eight dead and 11 injured. The nature of the attack has more in common with the recent atrocities carried out in the European cities of Barcelona, Berlin, London and Nice: trucks, driven into crowds. Donald Trump's reaction has been to make political capital by criticising the immigration system and promising a tougher merit-based vetting system. Our panel discuss how to keep America safe.

Produced by Daniel BARNEY, Alessandro XENOS, Christopher DAVIS.
