How To Win The Diversity Visa Lottery: AKA The Green Card Lottery Video

As details emerged about the incident, prominent right-wing commentators and news outlets seized on a report from New York’s ABC affiliate that the attacker, Sayfullo. Saipov, had come to the United States from Uzbekistan under a State Department program known as the Diversity Visa Lottery.

The NYC Killer also sponsored 24 others to enter the US.

The Department of Homeland Security confirmed on Wednesday afternoon “that the individual identified in the New York City terror attack was admitted to the U.S. upon presentation of a passport with a valid diversity immigrant visa.” A DHS spokesman, who did not mention Saipov by name, said the suspect entered the United States in 2010.
