US Issued Visas to At Least Five Accused Terrorists; Others Under Investigation for Terror Ties

I was told this could not happen and never did happen, ever.

The U.S. government granted visas to and resettled in America at least five foreign individuals who were later tied to terrorism, according to the White House, which announced that "hundreds of other foreign nationals" admitted to the country are currently under investigation for terror ties.

Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov, an Uzbek national alleged of committing recent deadly terror attacks in New York City, is just one of several terror-tied foreign nationals who were permitted to resettle in the U.S. as part of the Visa Lottery, which randomly awards green cards to foreigners.


"Just a few days prior to Saipov's attack in New York City, another Uzbek national and Visa Lottery winner, Abdurasul Hasanovich Juraboev, was sentenced to 15 years in prison after pleading guilty to conspiring to provide material support to Islamic State terrorists,' according to the White House.

In 2009, Syed Hais Ahmed, also a Visa Lottery winner, was convicted of terrorism related activities in the U.S. and elsewhere, according to the White House information, which was provided to reporters as part of a push by the Trump administration to end the lottery program.

Read the whole thing. Maybe Chuck Schumer will pump a few fake tears when we end this nonsensical program.

More here. The headline says "six" terror-linked people have come through this system, though the body then says "five."
