Chuck Schumer Under Fire After NYC Terrorist Attack for Role in 船iversity Visa Lotte

On 11.01.17 09:29 AM posted by Ryan Pickrell

President Donald Trump slammed*Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., early Wednesday for his role in launching the program that reportedly allowed an extremist onto American soil.

Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov, 29, a*green card holder*from Uzbekistan, mowed down pedestrians and bicyclists in a rented truck Tuesday afternoon in lower Manhattan before crashing into a school bus. He then got out of* the vehicle brandishing imitation firearms and shouting 鄭llahu akbar.

Authorities suspect Saipov may have sworn allegiance to the Islamic State, or ISIS, based on Arabic notes found at the scene and materials found on his computer.

The attack left eight dead and about a dozen injured. In the aftermath, Trump quickly called for stricter immigration protocols.
I have just ordered Homeland Security to step up our already Extreme Vetting Program. Being politically correct is fine, but not for this!

Saipov reportedly*came*to the U.S. in 2010 through a Department of State program known as the 泥iversity Visa Lottery.* He has been called a 砺isa winner.”
The terrorist came into our country through what is called the "Diversity Visa Lottery Program," a Chuck Schumer beauty. I want merit based.

We are fighting hard for Merit Based immigration, no more Democrat Lottery Systems. We must get MUCH tougher (and smarter). @foxandfriends

The Diversity Visa Lottery has been around for around two decades, and Schumer did play a part in developing the program.

Congress approved the program as part of the Immigration Act of 1990, and it went into effect in 1995. Since then, the program has been hotly debated, with liberals typically defending the program while conservatives push for merit-based immigration.

Trump followed up his earlier tweets with a quote from Col. Tony Shaffer, who apparently*said*on “Fox & Friends” that 鉄enator Chuck Schumer [is] helping to import Europe痴 problems.

展e will stop this craziness, Trump said in that tweet.
