Trumps Wants To End ‘Diversity Lottery Program’ Following NYC Attack

Investigators are still trying to determine what led a truck driver to drive through a group of people on a riverfront bike path in New York City. At least eight people were killed and 11 seriously injured. Police critically wounded the suspect before he was taken into custody.

Uzbek man identified as truck driver who allegedly killed 8 in New York City

“The man accused of plowing a truck through a New York City bike path is a 29-year-old professional truck driver and Uber driver who came to the United States from Uzbekistan in 2010 and lived most recently with his wife and children in the same northern New Jersey city where several 9/11 attack conspirators stayed.”- (USA TODAY )

President Trump said Wednesday he would renew efforts to kill a particular immigration program in the wake of the terrorist attack in New York City.

“Later, Trump told reporters he was “starting the process of terminating the diversity lottery program.” He added that “we have to get less politically correct,” and although the program “sounds nice,” he said, “I’m not nice.”- (The Atlantic)
