At 3 pm yesterday, a terrorist on a Diversity Visa brought death to lower Manhattan once again. 29 year-old Sayfullo Saipov rented a Home Depot truck and plowed it into a biking path killing bikers and joggers as he went. He left bits a pieces in his wake and then slammed into a school bus. When the carnage settled, eight were dead. Somewhere between 11 and 15 were injured. He screamed ‘Allahu Akbar’ as he jumped from the vehicle with two fake guns… a paintball gun and a BB gun. Police shot him in the abdomen, but unlike his victims, he will survive.
Notes in Arabic were found in the truck pledging his allegiance to ISIS. This is the first time since 9/11 that something like this has happened in New York. Saipov entered the U.S. eight years ago from Uzbekistan through the Diversity Visa Lottery. He then obtained a green card. President Trump and pro-American immigration reformers have demanded this program be ended. New York Democrat Chuck Schumer sponsored the program and has blood on his hands this morning because of it.
Thanks NYPD for rapidly responding to tragic situation downtown. Worried & saddened to hear about injuries & loss of life.

The Diversity Visa Lottery shells out 50,000 visas every year to foreign nationals from a number of countries, including those with known terrorist problems such as Afghanistan, Algeria, Egypt, Iraq, Lebanon, Libya, Nigeria, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Syria, Trinidad and Tobago, Venezuela, Yemen and Uzbekistan. Trump, along with Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) and Sen. David Perdue (R-GA), have been calling for an end to this program since August. Under the RAISE Act, introduced in February and endorsed by Trump in August, the Diversity Visa Lottery would be eliminated altogether. Hopefully, that will now take place.
According to Cotton, the program arbitrarily rewards random foreign nationals with visas to come to the U.S. with no vetting. “The diversity lottery serves no discernible humanitarian or economic interest,” Cotton told Breitbart News. “It is a policy that has far outlived its usefulness and it really doesn’t even serve diversity since Europe is one of the primary uses of it. Even in past efforts at amnesty-first comprehensive immigration reform like we saw in 2013 and 2007, most people agree we should eliminate the diversity lottery. I think it’s a policy that has far outlived its usefulness if it ever had any utility and it’s time to eliminate the diversity lottery.”

In 2011, Center for Immigration Studies National Security Policy Director Janice Kephart testified before Congress about the security risks associated with the visa program. “The Diversity Visa Program is an unfortunate blind spot in our immigration system that has outlived whatever purpose it might have had,” Kephart explained. “The applicants for these 50,000 ‘visa lottery’ immigration slots require few skills. Neither their qualifications nor identity can be properly vetted. The program does not know, really, who these applicants are or their true purpose in coming to the United States. The program is a national security vulnerability and has been used by terrorists and organized criminals to not only enter the United States but to bring others in as well.”
“According to unofficial statements from the State Department, the program is rife with fraud in part because application standards are so low,” Kephart continued. “The program claims to have strict eligibility requirements, but only calls for a high school education or its equivalent or two years of work experience within the past five years in an occupation requiring at least two years of training or experience.”
“In most of the countries eligible for a Diversity Visa, neither education nor work experience can be verified, let alone identity,” Kephart said. “Consular officers in U.S. embassies abroad thus spend an inordinate amount of time attempting to determine if people are who they say they are and actually qualify for the program. Checking watch lists based on names or prior U.S. immigration histories thus often has little bearing on making a solid determination of identity, qualifications, or legitimate national security concerns.”
Just as Trump and those opposing illegal immigration and unvetted refugee acceptance have worked to stop this, Democrats, some Republicans, the mainstream media and the big business lobby have all slammed the RAISE Act and Trump’s immigration priorities that would eliminate the Diversity Visa Lottery. And now, here we are with more dead Americans and all of it tied directly to this program.
The program was designed by Chuck Schumer in 1989. It was part of the Immigration Act of 1990 and it became permanent law in 1990. As Numbers USA reported, there is “no cost” to apply for the lottery, other than a $330 application fee. Applicants can enter as many times as they wish, but can only submit one application per year. As PolitiStick put it, “He should also be asked if the false pagan progressive god of “diversity” is worth getting people killed over.” Waiting for an answer, Chuckie. I think we’ll be waiting a long time.
