The 29-year-old foreign national terrorist behind the New York City or Manhattan attack came to the United States years ago through the courtesy of Democratic Party and Barack Obama. In simple words, he came through the Diversity Visa Lottery, a program that President Trump wants to end.
Sayfullo Saipov, the terrorist who mowed down pedestrians in the Tribeca neighborhood of New York City entered the U.S. in 2010 from Uzbekistan under the Diversity Visa Lottery before obtaining a Green Card.
Donald Trump along with Sen. David Perdue (R-GA) and Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) has been demanding an end to the Diversity Visa Lottery program.

Cotton explained to Breitbart News: “The diversity lottery serves no discernible humanitarian or economic interest. It is a policy that has far outlived its usefulness and it really doesn’t even serve diversity since Europe is one of the primary uses of it.”
“Even in past efforts at amnesty-first comprehensive immigration reform like we saw in 2013 and 2007, most people agree we should eliminate the diversity lottery. I think it’s a policy that has far outlived its usefulness if it ever had any utility and it’s time to eliminate the diversity lottery.”
