NYC Bomber a Beneficiary of Chain Migration and the Visa Lottery Program

Winners of the Visa Lottery program can go on to sponsor family members to come to the United States, resulting in chain migration, which could lead to large numbers of the winners' foreign relatives resettling in the United States.

About two-thirds of the 1 million people granted permanent residence in the United States each year come from all over the world based on family connections.

Within hours of the failed attack, President Donald Trump was condemning immigration that permits children and siblings of USA citizens into the country as "incompatible with national security". "In the years since 9/11, multiple diversity visa immigrants have perpetrated or been convicted of terrorism-related acts in the United States", he continued.

"Over time, the combination of the diversity visa program and the laws allowing extended family migration result in the admission of hundreds of thousands of immigrants without any assessment of whether their job skills meet any sort of USA economic need and without any consideration of the immigrants' age, education, English language ability, or close connection to the United States", said Cissna. That's why the President has pushed for not one part of immigration policy, but a responsible and total immigration reform.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Trump was "concerned that Congress, particularly Democrats, have failed to take action in some places where we feel we could have prevented this [attack]".

"First and foremost... America must fix its lax immigration system, which allows far too many unsafe, inadequately vetted people to access our country".

President Donald Trump said he'll end US immigration programs that give preferences to the families of new residents and that allow people to enter a lottery for visas, policies the White House blames for a bombing in NY on Monday.

Meanwhile, Saipov was himself a visa lottery recipient who immigrated from Uzbekistan in 2010. After serving most of his 14-year jail sentence he was deported from the U.S.in 2015.

"The problems with the Visa Lottery are various", Cissna said. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) last February - the Reforming American Immigration for Strong Employment (RAISE) Act - would end the diversity visa lottery and significantly reduce chain migration by retaining only two categories for family sponsorship - spouses and unmarried minor children.
