As the Trump administration presses the notion that recent terrorist attacks justify significant changes in the legal immigration system, critics say the facts of those attacks undercut their own argument.
Making matters worse than just, as mentioned above, the terrorist crimes committed - we can cite at least five more examples of such activity - is the drain on the treasury wrought by immigrants both illegal and legal as exercised through chain migration and the Visa Lottery program. Because Mr. Ullah came to the US legally from Bangladesh in 2011 on a family immigrant visa, the suspect has now become a leading example of the dangers of allowing immigrants to help immediate family members immigrate, too.
-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.
"The chain was initiated by the suspect's relative who became a U.S. Citizen after entering the country via a visa lottery program", a spokesman for the Department of Homeland Security wrote on Twitter. "Congress must end chain migration".
Other immigration reform bills being weighed in Congress leave the visa lottery in place.
Many Republicans including Grassley have sought to curb so-called chain migration, in which US citizens and permanent residents can sponsor family members in other countries for green cards.
Ullah said that he had carried out the attack in retaliation for US airstrikes on Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) targets in Syria and elsewhere, and said that he chose the subway passageway because of its Christmas-themed posters.
President Trump issued a statement shortly following yesterday's attack.
Reacting to Cissna's turn at the podium, Gregory Chen, director of government relations for the American Immigration Lawyers Association, called it "baldly transparent" that the administration could not make a sufficient connection between the immigration programs it is targeting and terrorism. The bill would lower legal immigration levels by half and put an end to both chain migration and the visa lottery. "We have now seen two terrorist attacks in New York City in less than two months that were carried out by people who came here as the result of our failed immigration policies that do not serve the national interest-the diversity lottery and chain migration", Sessions stated. Trump also pointed to chain migration in official remarks.
