Nearly 3,000 died that day, more than 6,000 others were injured.
Among the victims were first responders – 343 firefighters and 71 law enforcement officers. Sadly, thousands of people who worked and lived in and around Ground Zero during the attacks and shortly thereafter are being diagnosed with cancer and other chronic diseases even to this day.
The Center for Immigrant Studies published a report one year after the attacks to enlighten the public on how the events were allowed to unfold:
“They have come as students, tourists, and business visitors. They have also been lawful permanent residents (LPRs) and naturalized US citizens. They have sneaked across the border illegally, arrived as stowaways on ships, used false passports, or been granted amnesty. Terrorists have even exploited America’s humanitarian tradition of welcoming those seeking asylum.”
