President Trump said Wednesday he will ask Congress to end an immigrant visa program that he said the New York City terror suspect used to enter the U.S.
Speaking during a Cabinet meeting, Trump called the suspect an “animal” and said he should have not been allowed into the country.
"I am today starting the process of terminating the diversity lottery program,” the president said at the White House. "We need to get rid of the lottery program as soon as possible."
Trump will need Congress to get rid of the program, which was enacted by law in 1990 with bipartisan support.
