New York, NY
The New York Terrorist Sayfullo Saipov, entered the United States in 2010 thanks to a Diversity Visa. This was sponsored by the one and only Senator Chuck Schumer (D) of New York. President Trump has been working since he took office to end the Diversity Visa program. The program as proven yesterday does not Vet potential terror suspects properly.
The Diversity Visa Program, a State Department program which offers a lottery for people from countries with few immigrants in America, drew the ire of Trump early Wednesday morning.
“The terrorist came into our country through what is called the ‘Diversity Visa Lottery Program,’ a Chuck Schumer beauty. I want merit based,” Trump tweeted. “We are fighting hard for Merit Based immigration, no more Democrat Lottery Systems. We must get MUCH tougher (and smarter).”

Up to 50,000 Immigrants can get a VISA into the United States thanks to the Diversity Visa Program. The Trump Administration is looking to end this program immediately.
