U.S.: Honoring the Binghamton dead through citizenship

  • The shooting happened at an immigration center. Sens. Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand, both New York Democrats, introduced legislation that would honor the victims of last week’s shooting in Binghamton, N.Y. by posthumously giving citizenship to those killed that didn’t have it. Many of the people shot came from fairly diverse places all over the world. The citizenship would be considered honorary and would not affect the status of relatives. source
