It happened again. Another terrorist attack has occurred on U.S. soil. Not surprisingly, the killer is a Muslim man from Uzbekistan who became radicalized and swore allegiance to ISIS.

On Halloween, Sayfullo Saipov got in a Home Depot rental truck and mowed down civilians on a busy New York street, killing eight people and injuring scores of others. Saipov was later shot and wounded by police and is now in custody. Inside Saipov's truck was a bag containing a large hunting knife. Police also found letters written in Arabic.

The chaos is reminiscent of vehicle attacks seen throughout Europe.

Why was someone like Saipov even in the U.S. in the first place? He is not a U.S.-born citizen. He actually entered the country through the Diversity Visa Program in 2010. Yes, believeĀ it or not, there is such a thing. The program was started by Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer in 1990 and admits up to 50,000 immigrants from countries with lower levels of immigration.

Only in the mind of a whack progressive can you come up with something as crazy as that.

It should be also noted that since arriving to the U.S., Saipov has sponsored the arrival of 23 family members.

Luckily, the country now has someone in the office with common sense. In light of the attack, President Trump has called for an end to the Diversity Visa program. Trump minced no words and called the program a "Chuck Schumer beauty."

Schumer fired back by accusing the President of politicizing the attack.

It's time we stop handing out immigration visas like candy and turn to a merit-based system, which Trump has advocated. How many more of these attacks have to occur before we say enough is enough? How much longer are we going to put political correctness before the country's safety?

Is it time for the Diversity Visa Program to go?
