2nd NYC Islamic Terrorist Was Also Diversity Visa Lottery Baby

2nd NYC Islamic Terrorist Was Also Diversity Visa Lottery Baby

"I am determined to improve our immigration system to put our country and our people first", Trump said.

In both Monday's attempted bombing near Times Square and October's tragic truck attack, the perpetrators were foreign nationals from Middle Eastern countries who came to the United States thanks to the Diversity Visa Lottery, which the President wants to end. "First and foremost, as I have been saying since I first announced my candidacy for president, America must fix its lax immigration system, which allows far too many unsafe, inadequately vetted people to access our country".

That bill lacks wide support in Congress, including among many Republicans, though Trump has pushed for it to be part of a deal to save the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy he has opted to end.

First and foremost, as I have been saying since I first announced my candidacy for President, America must fix its lax immigration system, which allows far too many unsafe, inadequately vetted people to access our country. Eight people were killed in Saipov's truck attack, while Ullah injured three in addition to himself on Monday.

Sanders could not answer a follow-up question about whether the individual had been radicalized in the United States in the years he's lived here, as have recent terrorist attackers in the USA who were not natural born citizens.

President Trump called for the elimination of the Visa Lottery program and an end to chain migration.

Two Local Sheriffs Square off in Red Kettle Challenge
As of Monday, the organization had raised only $22,000 toward its $55,000 red kettle campaign goal, Lt. For example, the center sought to cook 12 to 15 turkeys on Thanksgiving Day to feed people in need.

Immigration control advocates say it's strictly about the numbers.

Reacting to Cissna's turn at the podium, Gregory Chen, director of government relations for the American Immigration Lawyers Association, called it "baldly transparent" that the administration could not make a sufficient connection between the immigration programs it is targeting and terrorism.

President Trump's immigration agenda has been validated twice in less than two months' time, but Democrats still aren't listening. U.S. Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders held a White House press briefing after the attack. It is time for Congress to prioritize the interests and safety of American citizens.

"If you get rid of chain migration or limit it severely, you're not just impacting the lives of immigrants, you're actually impacting the United States economy at large", says Pawan Dhingra, sociology professor at Tufts University.

President Trump issued a statement shortly following yesterday's attack.

Conservatives push back on that plan, saying that without an end to chain migration, a DACA fix would dramatically increases the number of people allowed into the country.
