“We are fighting hard for Merit Based immigration, no more Democrat Lottery Systems. We must get MUCH tougher (and smarter).”

Trump further said their administration want to get rid of chain migration also.

US President has asked the congress to start working on this immediately and get rid of the program as soon as possible.

Sri Lankans also had the opportunity to apply for the green card lottery program.

The attack Tuesday left 8 people dead and the suspect, Sayfullo Saipov, was charged with providing material support to terrorists and violence.
