NYC Bomber Benefitted From US Visa Lottery Program

White House claims Trump's immigration plans could have prevented NYC attack

Immigrants' rights groups say doing away with chain migration would radically change the nation's immigration system and reduce the number of people of color coming into the country.

"So the suspect in yesterday's bombing came in under the most extreme, remote possible family-based connection that you can have under current US immigration law", Cissna explained to reporters at the White House.

Sanders told reporters, "The president is certainly concerned that Congress, particularly Democrats, have failed to take action in some places where we feel we could have prevented this".

The Department of Homeland Security on Monday confirmed that Ullah came with his parents to the USA as the child of a sibling of a U.S. citizen, on a so-called nephew visa, in 2011.

"The president's policy has called for an end to chain migration". "Congress must also act on my Administration's other proposals to enhance domestic security, including increasing the number of Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers, enhancing the arrest and detention authorities for immigration officers, and ending fraud and abuse in our immigration system".

Israeli strike kills two people in Gaza, IDF denies attack
On October 30, Israel blew up an Islamic Jihad attack tunnel that stretched from Gaza under the border into Israel. Hamas did not respond immediately to a request for comment.

Cissna explained that immigrant lottery winners are chosen at random.

"There was nothing particular about him personally that would have said to the United States, Hey, here's a guy that we would like to have come to the United States". Ullah is a lawful permanent resident, or green card holder, spokesman Tyler Houlton said. "This multi-pronged approach is not an either-or solution to our national security challenges".

The detained suspect from Monday's attack gained entry to the country as a result of chain migration initiated by a relative, who received a visa and ultimately became a United States citizen through the visa lottery program. "Both programs are outdated and need to be replaced with a merit based immigration system to protect the homeland".

-Sayfullo Saipov, an Uzbek who moved to the 2010, who on October 31 drove a rented truck into pedestrians and cyclists in Lower Manhattan, killing eight people. Indian immigrants own half of the motels across America, despite making up just a small percentage of the population. But there might be a negative impact of halting family-based migration. "That was so transparent from that (briefing)".

Dhingra says that immigrants can bring their extended family to the USA to help get small businesses off the ground, providing them with jobs while saving on labor expenses. Mandhai immigrated to the USA on the basis of his parents' visa lottery win. "Congress must end chain migration", he said, listing a slew of measures to improve and secure the immigration system. In a statement, Sessions echoed the president's call for reforms.
