Are being ordered it effectively effective immediately to verify that every foreign student arriving in the US.
Has a valid student visa and we had to we had to -- order that that that was a change we had to put into effect.
Apparently we weren't doing it which of course we learned.
Yet again this week.
Two days after.
We're learning this today two days after the arrest of three students from UMass Dartmouth.
-- -- -- used.
Obstructing justice trying to hide evidence in connection with the Boston bombing investigation one is accused of lying.
And one of them is said to have been in this country unlawfully to have entered here was his student visa had -- expired how did that happen.
Why didn't we know then why do we have to change the policy.
Those are all questions we're gonna need answers to but right now we are told.
That is security rule has been changed effective immediately we'll talk about that in a little bit more detail coming up.
We also have some growing anger today.
Over that university that we're watching here on screen left the -- as the ATF and local officials search the grounds of that university.
As -- growing anger at that college over its refusal to release the records and other information relating to.
These three suspects you see on screen right.
Who were arrested this week and the main bombing suspect Joseph -- are -- Now some of this criticism is coming from among others Massachusetts senate candidate Gabriel Gomez.
He's a former navy seal who ran in this -- Boston Marathon and was near the finish line when the bombs went off.
-- -- thank you so much -- tell our viewers you are Republican year in a race.
For the vacancy now in in Massachusetts and you.
It's a tight race as far as we can sell violent against you and Ed Markey.
We'll get to that in a minute but I want to ask you about this.
UMass Dartmouth is basically saying.
Very concerned about Joseph cars are natives privacy rights and it's concerned about the privacy rights of these other three who we had a screen.
It's not quite is concerned with the public's right to know what if anything's in these guys were up to in the days before and after the bombing.
How you donated yeah I visited basket as he would have been -- mass at the university should absolutely.
Release the records.
But these students.
There's actually no excuse for -- Nazi.
-- what what.
Isn't I mean is that true -- -- quite frankly because they say there is an excuse they say the excuses -- the federal law that that provides privacy rights for students.
Who are -- you dated or even who have left the college.
And they say and I quote we are prohibited from releasing.
These records by the family educational rights and privacy act.
I think they make exceptions every once in awhile but apparently ought to make exceptions -- -- and -- they're trying to hide something.
And I think the national security issues here -- trump any kind of concerns that they have.
It's obvious that law enforcement's gonna get the records but why -- what is here.
What is your argument that the rest of us should get the records as well.
Let me argument is is you know these three abetted.
A terrorist act on the United States here in our city here in Boston that killed three innocent civilians and then -- police officer from MIT.
And we need to get the bottom of this we still don't know who else is involved in this where they trained here they trained with.
-- information to be relevant and we need to get a lot of of this because it's a national security.
Do you feel the same about the entirety of the state assistance that was provided.
If any -- we -- someone's.
To -- of family and -- -- of Brothers some some agencies have release that information on welfare benefits and otherwise and others are still saying now.
-- As this an example I think it might have something to -- that if these guys were receiving.
In Thailand benefits welfare benefits that could potentially funded their operations Munich at the bottom of this -- -- the bottom -- -- now.
-- mean this lesson in these incidents -- remind us what kind of world we live in the dangerous we'll be live in and we have to act accordingly.
Your thoughts now as somebody who is in that Boston Marathon who's running who is running for US senate seat out of Massachusetts.
As we sit here we look at these aerials as they are combing the grounds we don't know for what exactly but obviously it's evidence in connection with the Boston Marathon bombings.
As they try to build their case and figure out whether they have got all of the perpetrators involved in this terror attack.
I -- my guess -- I don't love we have everybody involved yet I mean these three came out just the last couple days and it's been over two and a half weeks since the Boston mayor marathon bonnies.
Everything has to be more people out there and that's the discovered this concert thing that's going on that could be out there.
