Trump Calls for End to Diversity Visa Program After NYC Attack

President Trump has called for the end of the Diversity Visa Program after the recent NYC terror attack that killed 8 people. The terror suspect, Sayfullo Saipov, an Uzbekistan immigrant, entered the U.S. in 2010 through the Diversity Visa Program. The program is designed to provide a path to U.S. residency for citizens from countries with historically low rates of immigration to the U.S. The program, via a lottery, selects up to 50,000 people per year who receive U.S. visas, and eventually permanent residence in the United States. Those selected undergo U.S. security checks before being allowed to immigrate.
