Should Congress End The Diversity Visa Program? [POLL]
After Monday's terrorist attack in New York City President Trump is calling on Congress to end the program that gave the alleged terrorist a visa. The Uzbekistan national came to the U.S. through the Diversity Visa Lottery program in 2010. According to POLITICO, President Trump says the program is not good.
"Diversity lottery. Sounds nice. It's not nice. It's not good. It's not good. It hasn't been good, and we've been against it,” the president said in remarks at the start of a cabinet meeting at the White House. “We need strength. We need resolve. We have to stop it. We need to get rid of this lottery program as soon as possible. He came in through the diversity program, as you know, and we're going to stop it. We're going to as quickly as possible get rid of chain migration and go to a merit-based system."
“The terrorist came into our country through what is called the 'Diversity Visa Lottery Program,' a Chuck Schumer beauty. I want merit based,” Trump wrote on Twitter, adding that there would be “no more Democrat Lottery Systems. We must get MUCH tougher (and smarter).”
