Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer created what is arguably one of the most dangerous acts of legislation in modern day history.
In 1990, Chuck Schumer was instrumental in helping pass the Diversity Lottery program, which allows some 50,000 immigrants to be granted visas seemingly at random.
And while one terrorist attack has already been linked to an immigrant from the program, the situation may be even worse than it originally seemed.
According to statistics released by the White House this week, four other terrorists have been let into the country via the Diversity Lottery Visa program.
Though President Trump has been vocally active this month to dismantle the bill, damage has already been dealt to innocent citizens.
In late October, a recipient of the program killed eight people in a premeditated attack and injured several more.
But even more shocking may be the news that has been revealed about several other recipients.
One beneficiary was sentenced to 15 years for conspiring to help ISIS just days before the attack in New York.
Yet another was found guilty of terrorist attacks in the US and beyond in 2009.
The Daily Caller reported:
In the days before Saipov’s attack, Abdurasul Hasanovich Juraboev, another Uzbek national and Diversity Visa beneficiary, was sentenced to 15 years in prison for conspiring to provide material support to the Islamic State.
Syed Harris Ahmed of Pakistan, another Diversity Visa Lottery beneficiary, was convicted in 2009 of terrorist activities in the U.S. and abroad.
In 1997, Mousa Mohammed Abu Marzook, a Hamas leader, was deported for terrorist activities. The White House said that he received his green card “through the predecessor program to the Visa Lottery.”
Two other terrorists received green cards due to relatives winning the Visa Lottery.
Hesham Hohamed Ali Hedayet, an Egyptian who killed two during a July 2002 shooting at Los Angeles International Airport, received his green card due to his wife being a winner of the Diversity Visa Lottery. He claimed a green card when his wife was selected as a beneficiary and was able to immigrate because his parents had previously benefited from the program.
Pakistani national Imran Mandhai pleaded guilty in 2002 to conspiring to bomb both electrical power substations in the Miami area and a National Guard Armory. Mandahi immigrated to the U.S. because his parents were Visa Lottery winners.
Chuck Schumer’s disregard for the safety of the American people can also be matched with his naivety concerning immigrant control.
The Diversity Lottery Visa program is one bill that must be dealt with swiftly if further attacks are to be thwarted.
