President Donald Trump Has Vowed To Cancel US Green Card Lottery After The New York Terror Attack.
President Donald Trump has vowed to instill tough measures to curb immigration after a deadly terror attack in New York.....
Looking to burnish his hard line image after what appeared to be the first major jihadist attack on the homeland during his administration, Trump pledged sweeping changes and called for the attacker to be put to death.
Surrounded by the cabinet, Trump -- who ran for the White House on a promise to end what he called "radical Islamic terrorism" -- announced he was "starting the process of terminating" America's green card lottery. Diversity lottery. Diversity lottery. Sounds nice. It's not nice," he said. "We're so politically correct that we're afraid to do anything."
The program was created 27 years ago and awards US permanent resident visas to around 50,000 applicants from around the world each year. According to Trump, 29-year-old Sayfullo Saipov, identified by authorities as the man who plowed a rented truck into cyclists and pedestrians on a New York City bike path Tuesday, came to the country via the program in 2010.
