After Attack, Trump and Democrats May Both Get What They Want

New York terror attack

U.S. President Donald Trump called for tougher immigration measures based on "merit" after the deadly truck attack in New York City.

Earlier on Wednesday, Mr Trump called the visa programme "a Chuck Schumer beauty", a reference to the Senate's Democratic leader.

After the terror attack in New York City on Tuesday, Trump revealed that the perpetrator had entered the U.S.in 2010 through the Diversity Immigrant Visa Program. Neither man said they had spoken directly to the president, although neither said they felt such a call was necessary. Trump's immigration reforms have the ability to change America again: By valuing the jobs that make more money over those that don't and by putting the people who had access to education before those who were never granted the opportunities, Trump is shaping America into a country for a few instead of a country made great by many.

A State Department deputy inspector general warned in 2004 that the diversity visa lottery "contains significant vulnerabilities to national security" from state sponsors of terrorism.

"You can't randomly select people, not have them thoroughly vetted and not have the ability to know whether these people want to do bad things or good things when they get here", Sanders said at a press briefing. In the most recent edition, it instructs followers to "gather as much information about your target as possible". It was signed by Republican President George H.W. Bush.

The immigration bill ultimately failed in the GOP-led House after passing the Senate in June 2013, 68-32, with 14 Republicans joining Democrats. The four were Dana Rohrabacher of California, Ileana Ros-Lehtinen of Florida, Chris Smith of New Jersey and Don Young of Alaska.

The president didn't mince words in expressing his disgust for the attacker, referring to the immigrant as an "animal".

The lottery, which has been managed by the State Department since it began in 1995, has raised concerns in the past, including in a 2007 Government Accountability Report that said it was vulnerable to scams.

"We have to do what's right to protect our citizens", he told reporters.

Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, defended Trump's criticism of the visa lottery program. As happened Wednesday, he often suggests that the U.S. needs to demonstrate more toughness and strength, qualities that he sought to represent during his presidential run.

The White House did not immediately respond to questions about the source of Trump's tweet. Sanders said Wednesday that the administration wouldn't rule out adding Uzbekistan to the list of targeted countries in the ban (which was temporarily struck down in federal court last month). We want to get rid of chain migration. That would explain why politicians on both sides of the aisle approved of the program.

Schumer also shot back at Trump's tweet and accused the president of politicizing the terror attack that killed eight people in lower Manhattan.

Discussion of the diversity visa dominated Fox News' prime time lineup on Tuesday, beginning with Tucker Carlson's program. "By providing skilled workers, the diversity visa program is a very small but valuable program that allows American businesses to compete in a global economy".

"But", she said, "we have put in place executive orders already since the president's taken office that help go as far as we can at this point". "The DVs are distributed among six geographic regions and no single country may receive more than seven percent of the available DVs in any one year", the website explains. However, Schumer was hardly the only politician with a role in its passage.
