Multiple officials have identified the alleged truck driver who mowed down pedestrians Tuesday in lower Manhattan, killing eight and injuring about a dozen more, as 29-year-old Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov. Officials are calling the incident “an act of terror.”
According to many witnesses, Saipov shouted “Allahu Akbar” upon exiting a Patterson, New Jersey Home Depot rental truck after intentionally driving the wrong way on a busy bike lane near the World Trade Center — the site of the deadliest terror attack on U.S. soil. After striking several people, witnesses say he “crashed deliberately into a school bus carrying at least three children,” CNBC reports. Leaving his vehicle with two imitation guns, he was shot in the abdomen by police, according to NYPD.
Officials later found a hand-written note in the truck Saipov drove that pledged allegiance to ISIS.
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.
Donald Trump has vowed to put an end to the aforementioned program and also “chain migration” which allows the family of a person already in the United States to get accelerated legal immigration into the United States.
