Trump Says He'll End US Visa Lottery and 'Chain Migration'

Trump Says He'll End US Visa Lottery and 'Chain Migration'

DHS confirmed that Ullah entered the United States in 2011.

"Congress must end chain migration", he wrote, presumably referring to the preferential visa status given to some migrants with family members who are USA citizens. "When considering who to invite into our country as immigrants, our nation should focus on people's merit: their skills, education and what they can contribute".

-Abdurasul Hasanovich Juraboev, another Uzbek and visa lottery victor, who was sentenced in October to 15 years' imprisonment for conspiring to provide material support to ISIS.

But when pressed to explain the connection to terrorism from the White House podium on Tuesday, Director of US Citizenship and Immigration Services Lee Francis Cissna could cite olnly hypothetical risk. Those subsequent immigrants can also sponsor family members. After five years, a lottery victor is eligible to become US citizen, enabling them to then sponsor an even wider range of distant relatives. CBS News confirmed via the Department of Homeland Security that Ullah arrived in the U.S.in 2011 through "extended family chain migration".

Official figures show that over the past decade, nearly 30,000 nationals of three countries now designated by the US government as state-sponsors of terror have obtained green cards through the visa lottery program - more than 20,700 Iranians, 7,200 Sudanese and 800 Syrians. She called for destroying the "evil ideology" that is behind ISIS and attacks like the one in NY yesterday.

Sanders could not answer a follow-up question about whether the individual had been radicalized in the United States in the years he's lived here, as have recent terrorist attackers in the U.S. who were not natural born citizens. The suspect in today's attack entered through chain migration. "The bad harm that this flawed system inflicts on America's security and economy has always been clear". Both events are a byproduct of our broken immigration system.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions is also supporting ending chain migration and the visa lottery.

"It's worse than not effective, it's counterproductive", said Michael Breen, president and CEO of the Truman Center and Truman National Security Project, whose membership includes former national security officials and veterans of the Obama and Clinton administrations.

First and foremost, as I have been saying since I first announced my candidacy for President, America must fix its lax immigration system, which allows far too many unsafe, inadequately vetted people to access our country. He was one of 141,501 immigrants who arrived in the USA from Bangladesh through chain migration since 2005, according to the White House.

Trump called on Congress to act to end chain migration, and advance his 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".
