America’s latest terrorist, 27-year-old monster Akayed Ullah, took advantage of chain migration policies to gain entry into the country. A close relative became a naturalized citizen, giving Ullah the ability to apply for a special visa.
The Trump administration has repeatedly railed against chain migration. The system turns the government into the dupe of migrants. Green card holders are allowed to bring unlimited family members to join them in the U.S. One person passes the background check, and their family quickly hastens to latch onto them.
If that wasn’t bad enough, there’s another loophole. The State Department hosts a yearly lottery granting a visa to whatever name is lucky enough to be pulled out of the hat. A few months ago a Muslim lottery winner rammed his car into a crowd of pedestrians and bikers.
“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,” Trump said.
.@DHSgov can confirm that the suspect was admitted to the United States after presenting a passport displaying an F43 family immigrant visa in 2011. The suspect is a Lawful Permanent Resident from Bangladesh who benefited from extended family chain migration.

“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.”
Immigration reform needs to happen NOW.
