Yesterday, the country was shocked by the tragic explosions at the finish line of the Boston Marathon. 3 were killed and approximately 100 were seriously injured. President Obama promised that those responsible would be held accountable and feel the full weight of justice.
More facts will come forward today, as investigators from national and Massachusetts state and local agencies continue to bring the facts together and provide answers to the country.
Despite the tragedy, the Bi-partisan “Gang of 8” will release its immigration proposal today, with a presser delayed until tomorrow due to the tragic events.
