As I’ve previously told you, I watch CNN every morning for a little bit just to get a feel for where the Leftwing media’s head is each day. They reported on the terror attack and the chain migration visa but did not mention that the chain began with a Diversity Visa Lottery winner.
Here John Binder at Breitbart reported the news:
The Bangladesh-born terror suspect who allegedly attempted to detonate a suicide-bomb in New York was able to enter the United States as a foreign relative of an immigrant, extended-family member who had won a visa to the U.S. under the Diversity Visa Lottery.
In a statement by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Ullah was able to enter the U.S. in 2011 as a foreign relative after one of his family members was awarded a Green Card in the Visa Lottery.
Every year, the Visa Lottery — championed by Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) — gives out 50,000 visas to foreign nationals from a multitude of countries, including those with known terrorist problems – such as Afghanistan, Algeria, Bangladesh, Egypt, Iraq, Lebanon, Libya, Nigeria, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Syria, Trinidad and Tobago, Venezuela, Yemen, and Uzbekistan.
As Breitbart News reported, Ullah was able to obtain a visa as the nephew of his Visa Lottery relative. This process of extended-family mass immigration to the U.S. is known as “chain migration.”
Chain migration allows new immigrants to the U.S. to bring an unlimited number of foreign relatives with them.
And, the Center for Immigration Studies has more here too.
Don’t miss my May 2017 post on the insanity of the Diversity Visa Lottery (aka green card lottery).
We have a category on the Diversity Visa Lottery here because although it isn’t a refugee program we followed it a bit over the years to help make our point that everyone needed to get off the illegal immigration is bad, but legal is good bandwagon!
