Mayor Says NYC Needs More Homeland Security Money

Wednesday, 05 May 2010 09:44 AM

Mayor Michael Bloomberg says he's going to Washington to make a case for additional homeland security money.

The mayor spoke Wednesday at an event with members of the bomb squad that defused a bomb in Times Square on Saturday.

He said New York is the symbol of America, "where terrorists come and we need to have homeland security funds."

He said Saturday's failed attack proved the need. Faisal Shahzad, a 30-year-old naturalized U.S. citizen, was charged Tuesday with trying to blow up a crude device inside a parked SUV amid tourists and Broadway theatergoers.

The mayor and police Commissioner Raymond Kelly are scheduled to testify Wednesday at a U.S. Senate hearing on terrorists and guns.
