President Trump Calls For Elimination Of Diversity Visa Lottery After NYC Attack

President Trump is calling on Congress to terminate the Diversity Visa Lottery program.

That allowed the suspect in the New York City attack to immigrate to the United States.

The president accused the Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and Democrats for being soft on terror.

Schumer fired back blaming President Trump for proposing budget cuts to terror programs.

House members say lottery winners go through the same strict vetting process that every other immigrant goes through.

They say the program is a bipartisan effort.
