Bail Denied For Illegal Immigrant In Trump Assassination Attempt

A British man accused of trying to take a police officer’s gun and kill Donald Trump during a weekend rally in Las Vegas will not be released on bail.  He had overstayed his visa from the United Kingdom.

Federal Magistrate Judge George Foley said at a hearing Monday that Michael Steven Sandford, 20, was a potential danger to the community and a flight risk. Sandford, who wore leg irons and appeared to tremble during the court hearing, is charged with an act of violence on restricted grounds and was assigned a federal public defender.

He has not entered a plea.
Here is what we know about the attempt at Trump’s life:

  • Sandford had been planning the assassination for a year.
  • He reserved a ticket in Phoenix for later in the day as a backup plan.
  • He trained at a Vegas shooting range the day before, firing 20 rounds from a Glock handgun.
