President Trump has previously called for the elimination of the visa lottery system, which since 1990 has awarded 50,000 visas per year to foreign nationals from countries with low levels of migration to the US. They noted that his uncle, now a USA citizen, originally came on a diversity lottery visa, a program that benefits up to 50,000 people per year from countries with lower levels of immigration to the U.S. and is the same program that brought the suspect in a Halloween New York terrorist attack to the US. "Not luck or lotteries", Cissna wrote.
CBS News confirmed via the Department of Homeland Security that Ullah arrived in the U.S.in 2011 through "extended family chain migration".
"Today's terror suspect entered our country through extended-family chain migration, which is incompatible with national security", the president declared. "Congress must end chain migration".
But when pressed to explain the connection to terrorism from the White House podium on Tuesday, Director of US Citizenship and Immigration Services Lee Francis Cissna could cite olnly hypothetical risk.
In both Monday's attempted bombing near Times Square and October's tragic truck attack, the perpetrators were foreign nationals from Middle Eastern countries who came to the U.S. thanks to the Diversity Visa Lottery, which the President wants to end. After five years, a lottery victor is eligible to become US citizen, enabling them to then sponsor an even wider range of distant relatives.

Multiple wildfires destroy homes in Los Angeles County
On Tuesday, two risky fires swept through southern California, forcing tens of thousands of people to evacuate. Burnt out remains of homes in the Bel-Air section of LA, destroyed by wildfires in 1961 during the dry season.
America's chain migration policy allows people who have migrated to the U.S.to sponsor other family members to come here as well.
The President stressed his call on Congress to take action.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions is also supporting ending chain migration and the visa lottery. "I am determined to improve our immigration system to put our country and our people first".
President Trump touts immigration reform for the same reason he lashes out at illegal immigration at a time when such behavior is in decline, not on the rise.
"It's worse than not effective, it's counterproductive", said Michael Breen, president and CEO of the Truman Center and Truman National Security Project, whose membership includes former national security officials and veterans of the Obama and Clinton administrations. There is absolutely a reasonable conversation to be had about encouraging merit-based immigration, but there's also one to be made about keeping families intact.
