After NYC Terror Attack, Trump Vows to End 'This Craziness'

The program, the State Department's Diversity Visa Lottery Program, aims to diversify the U.S.'s immigration population by picking applicants from countries with low rates of immigrants in the country, according to the State Department. Trump said he instead wants "merit based" immigration. "We must get MUCH tougher (and smarter)", he added.

The terrorist suspected of mowing down people on the Hudson River bike path entered the country through a little-known immigration lottery, a program now coming under the microscope.

"Once again, we've seen the evil face of terror in our own borders, but this is a face that knows no borders, and certainly Belgium, Europe and other countries have to deal with this evil that confronts us from time to time", he said. Charles Schumer, D-New York, for supporting the program. "These solutions have been in front of Congress for years, and yet, no action has been taken". One Argentine, a German and three Belgians, were among the injured. "I think they tend to point fingers and politicize the situation", he said.

He had also changed the banner on his Twitter account to the New York skyline.

The process also includes an in-person interview. Trump said there were "23 people that came in or potentially came in" with Saipov. The world was a different place back then.

That plan contained a series of provisions designed to make the U.S. visa system more merit-based, including the elimination of the diversity lottery program, a bipartisan law Schumer helped write and President George H.W. Bush signed into law in 1990.

The House approved the conference report the following day, by a 264-118 margin.

Has Congress tried to change the program?

Since then, the program has been hotly debated, with liberals typically defending the program while conservatives push for merit-based immigration. The aim is to mix up the nation's melting pot, although the visas are a tiny fraction of the roughly 1 million green cards the government issues annually.

In New York, leaders vowed that the annual marathon would go ahead as planned on Sunday. "They're worried about how they're going to be able to pay the rent".

Another of the eight, Republican Sen.

The comments followed Trump's Tuesday night statement that he had ordered DHS "to step up our already Extreme Vetting Program".

Speaking on the Senate floor Wednesday, Schumer said he has "always believed that immigration is good for America".

The immigration bill ultimately failed in the GOP-led House after passing the Senate in June 2013, 68-32, with 14 Republicans joining Democrats. There is still no indication from authorities that Saipov was connected to any kind of a terror cell inside the country.

The president immediately reacted to the attack and expressed his condolences to the victims and their families. He managed to drive about 20 blocks, killing eight people and injuring 22 with serious but not life-threatening wounds. As it stands, the lottery brings in immigrants of all colors, but what's significant is its relatively loose demands: the applicant must have completed a high school education or has had two years of work experience in an occupation that requires two other years of training.
