The Islamic radical who mowed down pedestrians in Manhattan is a Uzbek migrant who entered the United States on a Diversity Visa in 2010.
Supposedly the Diversity Visa program is a lottery of sorts where people from obscure countries can throw their names into a hat in hopes of winning entry.
And these entries are not based on skills or economic benefit to the US. But instead based on “just because” in hopes of making America more diverse.
If Extreme Vetting is one side of the spectrum, the Diversity Visa program is way down on the other side.
And fifty thousand people gain entry through this supposed lottery every single year.
But after yesterday’s terrorist attack, I think it’s fair to say that the Diversity Visa program is less a lottery and more like playing Russian Roulette with Americans’ safety.
And whom do we have to thank for this?
None other than the senior Senator from New York Chuck Schumer.
The people murdered in Manhattan yesterday were, as Mark Steyn once put it, “human sacrifices on the Altar of Diversity.”
Nobody has a right to immigrate to the United States.
Immigration should be what is in the best interests of the country.
And tell me, how did we as a nation benefit from the entry of Sayfullo Saipov? Was it his advanced training in Uber-driving that made him so indispensable?
Because heaven knows, no native-born Americans could have the skills to shuttle people around in a car.
The terrorist came into our country through what is called the "Diversity Visa Lottery Program," a Chuck Schumer beauty. I want merit based.

In August, President Trump — along with Senators Cotton and Perdue – introduced the RAISE Act.
This immigration overhaul would get rid of Visa Lotteries like the Diversity Visa program.
And keep in mind that many Republican Senators were quick to announce that they would not support it.
One of the Senators who wasted no time saying he would not support the RAISE Act was none other than “principled conservative” Jeff Flake. And, I’m sure this will come as a surprise, John McCain also dismissed it.
In fact, McCain made it clear that he was more interested in working with Chuck Schumer – the man who brought us the Diversity Visa program – than with President Trump and Tom Cotton.
But this doesn’t come as a surprise to me. McCain and Flake have always been more than happy to sacrifice American lives on the Altar of Diversity.
This country has to return to sanity. And that means a return to merit-based immigration.
It’s time to shut down the Diversity Visa program and stop playing Russian Roulette with American lives.
