Mr Trump has backed a conservative bill in the US Senate which aims to scrap the green card lottery, halve the number of immigrants to the US and cap the number of refugees. Trump's tweets make it seem like he's focused on protecting people, but the deceptive nature of his words make it clear that it's nothing more than an attack on a political opponent. That plays right into the hands of the terrorists. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., said it was "probably not the best way to bring out the best in our country".
Why is the program coming under scrutiny?
Trump's anti-terrorism-funding cut? "I hope we can include this area of common ground as we work to fix our broken immigration system and strengthen our national security".
"The big 'V' is the issue", Phares replied.
"The focus on vetting and thinking that people are trying to get here to commit acts of terrorism is not a legitimate lens to view the bulk of this problem", Bier said.
During the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump proposed a total ban on Muslim immigration to the U.S. before embracing "extreme vetting".
The president called for a merit-based program, and criticized "chain migration", saying the suspect "brought in with him other people". Schumer said he has "always believed and continue to believe that immigration is good for America".
Schumer did back the lottery program as a member of the House when it was approved with the support of both parties in 1990. The driver, who is in police custody, has been identified as Sayfullo Saipov, an immigrant from Uzbekistan who came to the U.S. legally in 2010. Just a fraction of 1 percent of them eventually received visas to the United States, according to the latest State Department figures available. "I want merit based", Trump wrote on Twitter.
"The diversity visa program has got to end", Ingraham said. "Fox & Friends First" played a clip from his interview with Hannity shortly after 4 a.m., and again after the 5:00 a.m. hour.
The diversity visa program provides up to 50,000 visas annually by lottery. I think it needs to be looked at.
DHS said after the terror attack that using vehicles to plow into crowds of people is gaining popularity among jihadists around the world.
The program takes applications for so-called diversity visas from residents of countries that send few immigrants to the US. It wasn't even a close vote in the Senate. "That's not what Islam is all about". How much more diversity do you want? It would "replace the current permanent employment visa system with a skills-based points system" that prioritizes well-educated English speakers "high-paying job offers", "entrepreneurial initiative" and a record of "extraordinary achievement". That bill was never picked up by the House. "We need strength. We need resolve".
One such bill, which two Republican Senators rolled out in August titled The Reforming American Immigration for Strong Employment, would curb low-level immigration by examining the age, level of education, salary, english proficiency of visa applicants.
