Schumer rips World Trade Center security

Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) called for a federal review of security at the World Trade Center on Sunday, following reports that multiple people have evaded guards to sneak to the top of the still-under-construction tower.

“What is going on here?” Schumer said, according to the Associated Press.
