Democrat NY Sen. Schumer Created Diversity Visas Which Invited Alleged Killer to NY (UPDATE: Trump Tweets, Terrorist “came into our country through what is called the ‘Diversity Visa Lottery Program,’ a Chuck Schumer beauty.”)
DIVERSITY VISAS? REALLY, LIKE THE USA IS SOME HOW NOT DIVERSE?
Yesterday’s terror jihadist who killed 8 people and injured nearly a dozen was a lottery winner of the diversity visa program. Guess who helped creates it, Democrat Senate leader, N.Y. Sen. Chuck Schumer, then Rep. Schumer in the 1990′s. Really? We have a diversity visa program in the most diverse country in the world? Its time for this to be stopped and immigration be based solely on merit. 29-year-old terrorist Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov was the recipient of this program.
The Democrats’ Senate leader, N.Y. Sen. Chuck Schumer helped create the diversity visa program which reportedly provided a green card to the Islamic immigrant who allegedly killed eight New Yorkers on October 31.
The diversity visa program was created in 1990 by then-Rep. Schumer in response to Irish lobbies in his New York district. Twenty-seven years later, it annually awards 50,000 visas by annual lottery to entrants from around the world, ensuring a cascade of subsequent chain-migrants.
An August poll shows that only one-in-six Americans strongly favors the program, despite much political and media pressure to welcome migrants. Politico and Morning Consult conducted the poll of 1,992 registered voters, which showed:

Other polls show that the public strongly opposes elements of the program which offers green cards to people with few skills, little earning ability and little ability to assimilate into the United States’ non-Islamic society.
President Donald Trump and several GOP legislators, including Georgia Sen David Perdue and Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton, has called for the diversity visa program to be ended. But the program is praised by progressives for imposing variety on Americans’ civic society. According to a progressive website, Qz.com:
Supporters believe the DV program, despite its relatively small size is essential in keeping the US a truly multicultural society by providing an opportunity for people from communities that aren’t largely represented in recent immigration flows to have a shot at America.
Schumer’s diversity visa plan was included in the House-approved “Family Unity and Employment Opportunity Immigration Act of 1990” when it was combined with a proposal by a Democratic from Boston. The resulting “Schumer visa” measure was included in the completed Immigration Act of 1990, which also raised the annual inflow of legal immigrants up from 500,000 up to 700,000. The bill was signed by then-President George H.W. Bush.
The diversity visa program offers green cards to 50,000 lottery applicants each year. Lottery winners undergo a State Department interview and health check, and can then bring their spouses and minor children to the United States and get them on a five-year track to citizenship.
Once a winner and a spouse become citizens, they can import their parents, their in-laws and their children, plus the parents of their in-laws, such as the winner’s spouse’s sister’s husband’s parents. In turn, the relatives can later become citizens and import their relatives. The chain-migration process does not set any skill tests for admission, and so delivers a growing flow of unskilled and uneducated — and often ill, elderly and retired migrants — to the nation’s extensive welfare system.
President Trump announced that he has ordered Homeland Security to step up “extreme vetting” in the wake of the New York City attack that left eight people dead and 11 injured.
“I have just ordered Homeland Security to step up our already Extreme Vetting Program. Being politically correct is fine, but not for this!” he wrote.
Trump’s statement comes after a man described as a “lone wolf” deliberately drove a rented truck into a West Side bike path in lower Manhattan, in the first terror attack in New York City since 9/11, and just blocks from the World Trade Center.
Trump’s extreme-vetting policy on immigrants entails more stringent investigative measures intended to identify those who may sympathize with extremists or pose a national security risk to the United States.
On Wednesday, Trump called for “Merit Based immigration,” saying on Twitter that the driver in Tuesday’s attack “came into our country through what is called the ‘Diversity Visa Lottery Program,’ a Chuck Schumer beauty.”
TRUMP CALLS OUT CHUCKY SCHUMER …
President Donald Trump mocked New York Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer for claiming lack of confidence in former FBI director James Comey and then acting upset when Trump fired him.
In a tweet posted late Tuesday evening, Trump referred to Schumer as ‘Cryin’ Chuck Schumer for reversing positions on Comey after Trump fired the FBI director earlier Tuesday. Trump made the decision based on the recommendation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions and his deputy Rod Rosenstein. According to the president, the purpose of the firing is to reinvigorate “public trust and confidence.”
Hypocrite Democrat Senate Minority Schumer to President Trump: Comey Firing a ‘Big Mistake’ … Isn’t This the Same Guy Who Said I Have No Confidence in Comey?
REALLY CHUCKY, IT WASN’T TOO LONG AGO YOU WERE CALLING FOR COMEY’S HEAD …
It would appear that Chuck Schumer was for the firing of FBI director James Comey before he was against it. Senate Minority leader took the podium with with moral condemnation of Comey. Schumer told Trump that it was a big mistake to fire Comey. REALLY? Who does not think that if Hillary won the 2016 presidency, God forbid, that she would have not fired him. Schumer said that the “first question” for the Trump administration is why the president decided to fire Comey now. The FBI is investigating Russia’s meddling in the 2016 White House race, as well as any connections between Trump’s campaign and Moscow.
But this is not what the two face, hypocritical Schumer was saying previously about James Comey. The duplicity of Schumer reeks of nothing more than partisan politics.
Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) says he told President Trump that his decision to fire FBI Director James Comey was a “big mistake.
“Earlier this afternoon President Trump called me and informed me he was firing Director Comey,” Schumer told reporters on Tuesday. “I told the president, ‘Mr. President, with all due respect, you are making a big mistake.’ ”
He added that Trump didn’t “really respond” to his comment.
Trump wrote in a letter to Comey that the FBI has to restore “public trust and confidence.”
But wait, wasn’t it just last November 2016 when New York Sen. Chuck Schumer gave Comey a vote of no confidence and all but alluded to the fact that Comey would be fired once Hillary Clinton won? That is exactly what was said.
New York Sen. Chuck Schumer gave FBI Director James Comey a no-confidence vote in response to Comey’s revelation that the agency has reopened its investigation of Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server when she was secretary of state.
“I do not have confidence in him any longer,” the likely incoming leader of the Senate Democrats, told Bloomberg.
That statement raises the possibility that Democrats will try to oust Comey after the presidential election. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi hinted at the prospect Wednesday. “Maybe he’s not in the right job,” the California Democrat told CNN. “I think that we have to just get through this election and just see what the casualties are along the way.”
Comey rocked the presidential campaign when he sent a letter to lawmakers on Friday revealing that investigators had found a new batch of emails “pertinent” to the Clinton probe while conducting “an unrelated investigation.” The letter was at odds with the standard procedure of the FBI not to confirm or deny ongoing investigations, but Comey thought it was necessary because he testified before Congress that the Clinton probe was finished.
MAKE NO MISTAKE ABOUT IT, DEMOCRATS WILL RUE THE DAY IF THAT ACT IN A PARTISAN MANNER IN VOTING FOR SUPREME COURT NOMINEE GORSUCH …
Democrat Minority leader Schumer said yesterday on Meet the Press that Democrats and Republicans should come up with a mainstream nominee instead of President Trump’s nominee, Neil Gorsuch. Sorry Chucky, you don’t get to dictate anything or make the rules. You are in the minority. In the famous words of former president Barack Obama when speaking to the GOP leadership after he won the presidency … elections have consequences.
As the Senate gears up to consider President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch, Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer predicted Sunday that “it looks like Gorsuch will not reach the 60-vote margin” needed to overcome a filibuster.
If the 60 votes aren’t there, Schumer argued during an appearance on “Meet The Press,” Trump should gather with Senate Democrats and Republicans to “try to come up with a mainstream nominee.”
“Look, when a nominee doesn’t get 60 votes, you shouldn’t change the rules, you should change the nominee,” said Schumer, D-New York.
Republican Majority leader Mitch McConnell said that Neil Gorsuch would be elected to the SCOTUS in one way or the other. McConnell put forth the qualifications of Gorsuch and battled the liberal MSM who argued the Democrat side.
THE DOUBLE STANDARD OF THE LEFT, SO I AM GUESSING DEMOCRATS WILL BE ASKING SCHUMER TO RESIGN?
With all the insanity from the LEFT that there is a connection between Trump and the Russians, because the LEFT just cannot accept losing an election, what about this? From the Gateway Pundit comes this inconvenient flashback for Democrats where in 2003, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) met not only with the Russians, but Vladimir Putin, himself, in New York City.
More from NTK on this Schumer meeting with the Russians. Not Trump, but Chucky Schumer. So where are the calls for Schumer to resign as Democrat Senate Minority leader? Come on folks, this man has met with Putin. Oh the double standard and hypocrisy.
Incoming Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has talked quite tough on Russia as of late. In December, he said Trump’s team is “far too close to Russia,” and added “[b]oth parties ought to be united in standing up to Russian interference.”
Schumer hasn’t always been so tough on Russian President Vladimir Putin.
In 2003, Schumer welcomed Putin to New York City as Russian oil company Lukoil opened a gas station in Manhattan.
The AP photo shows Putin and Schumer smiling, with coffee and Krispy Kreme doughnuts. The caption reads:
Russian President Vladimir Putin, right, enjoys a Krispy Kreme doughnut and coffee with Senator Charles Schumer from New York as Putin visits the first New York gas station of the Russian company Lukoil, Friday.
Schumer also said that day:
“When I showed the president of Russia a Krispy Kreme doughnut and he ate it and said it was good, that was one of the more surreal moments I’ve had in politic
