NYC Bomber a Beneficiary of Chain Migration and the Visa Lottery Program

Sessions and Neilsen

"Congress must end chain migration". "Congress must end chain migration".

The New York Post reported Trump's remarks, but failed to mention the DHS assessment that chain migration enabled Ullah to enter the country. "It would change the way we select people". "With respect to the individual in yesterday's attempt, I would say I don't know, I don't have a command of the facts relating to the investigation as to whether or if he was ever radicalized".

"We have to clean this up", the Tennessee Republican said.

In November, the State Department released data revealing that since 2007, the visa lottery has been responsible for the U.S. admitting almost 30,000 foreign nationals from the terror-sponsoring nations of Sudan, Syria, and Iran. Attorney General Jeff Sessions issued a statement in complete agreement, adding that chain migration and the diversity lottery (which the White House blamed for the last NY terror attack, the rental vehicle steered into a bike path by an Uzbek immigrant, killing eight) would turn away not only terrorists but "gang members, fraudsters, drunk drivers, and child abusers". "Both programs are outdated and need to be replaced with a merit based immigration system to protect the homeland".

The President stressed his call on Congress to take action.

About two-thirds of the 1 million people granted permanent residence in the U.S. each year come from all over the world based on family connections. "That was so transparent from that (briefing)".

Dhingra says that immigrants can bring their extended family to the USA to help get small businesses off the ground, providing them with jobs while saving on labor expenses.

As we are frequently told, and duly recognize, we are a "nation of immigrants".

Official figures show that over the past decade, nearly 30,000 nationals of three countries now designated by the US government as state-sponsors of terror have obtained green cards through the visa lottery program - more than 20,700 Iranians, 7,200 Sudanese and 800 Syrians.

Ullah was reportedly inspired by the terror group ISIS.

"It's worse than not effective, it's counterproductive", said Michael Breen, president and CEO of the Truman Center and Truman National Security Project, whose membership includes former national security officials and veterans of the Obama and Clinton administrations.

"The more we alienate people, the more hard it is to prevent radicalization", Breen said.
