The Department of Homeland Security just released updated information on the terror suspect who allegedly attempted to detonate a bomb in a New York subway. On Monday, 27-year-old Akayed Ullah, a Bangladesh national, injured three people when he attempted to detonate an explosive device in a planned terrorist attack.
Ullah, as confirmed by the Department of Homeland Security, entered the U.S. in 2011 as a chain migrant.
Utilizing the F43 visa system, Ullah obtained a Green Card simply because a family member had recently been naturalized as a U.S. citizen. This process is known as “extended-family chain migration.”
If you will remember back in October, President Donald Trump called for an end to this “chain migration” process.
Under “chain migration,” new immigrants are allowed to bring an unlimited number of poorly-screened relatives with them to the United States. This creates a never-ending flow of immigration from some terror-ridden countries!
Check it out, per Breitbart:
More than 140,000 Bangladeshi nationals — larger than the population of Dayton, Ohio — have entered the United States since 2005 for no other reason than to reunite with extended family members.
This is the second time in three months that a foreign-born suspected terrorist entered the U.S. through an immigration program that Trump has called for the end to.
Another suspected ISIS-inspired New York City terrorist, Uzbek national 29-year-old Sayfullo Saipov who is accused of murdering at least eight individuals, entered the U.S. in 2010 by winning one of the 50,000 visas randomly allotted every year under the Diversity Visa Lottery.
The Visa Lottery dolls out 50,000 visas annually to foreign nationals from a multitude of countries. The countries include those with terrorist problems, including Afghanistan, Algeria, Egypt, Iraq, Lebanon, Libya, Nigeria, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Syria, Trinidad and Tobago, Venezuela, Yemen, and Uzbekistan.
Trump most recently slammed the visa lottery, saying:
We want a system that is merit-based. They come in on merit, they don’t come in on a lottery system. How about the lottery system? Folks did you see that? That’s the guy in New York City. The lottery system where they put names in a bin… so what they do, I would say but more than just say, they take their worst and they put them in the bin and then when they pick the lottery, they have the real worst in their hands… and we end up getting them.
No more lottery system. We’re going to end that. We’ve already started the process.
We want people coming into our country who love our people, support our economy and embrace our values. It’s time to get our priorities straight.
