Boston Suspects' Father Says He's Returning to U.S.

Posted: Updated:

The father of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects says he will leave Russia for the United States in the next day or two. 
 
But the suspects' mother says she's still thinking it over. She was charged with shoplifting while she was in the United States last summer, but says she's been assured by lawyers that she would not be arrested. 
 
She says she wishes she'd never moved her family members to the United States, claiming that the U.S. failed to protect them.
 
The Tsarnaev family emigrated to the U.S. a decade ago, but both parents returned to Russia last year.

Meanwhile, the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee says he want to overhaul the way the U.S. grants asylum to immigrants after the Boston Marathon bombing.
 
Rep. Bob Goodlatte is a Virginia Republican. He says U.S. authorities should consider whether asylum applicants are, quote, "engaging in aggressive tactics" in their home countries.
 
Accused Boston Marathon bombers Tamerlan Tsarnaev and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev are ethnic Chechen brothers from Russia who came to the United States about a decade ago with their parents. The family was granted asylum.
 
Tamerlan Tsarnaev was killed in a shootout with police last week. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was arrested after being found hiding, unarmed, in a boat. (AP)
