Politically Correct 'Insanity': Malkin Sounds Off on Visa Lottery Program, Chain Migration
Michelle Malkin said recent terror attacks in New York City highlight the need to fix our broken immigration system.
Akayed Ullah, a 27-year-old Bangladeshi national, allegedly pledged loyalty to ISIS before detonating a pipe bomb near the Port Authority Bus Terminal, injuring several people. Ullah was admitted to the U.S. in 2011 through chain migration.
Sayfullo Saipov, the suspect in the New York City terror attack on October 31 that killed eight people and injured 12, came to the U.S. from Uzbekistan in 2010 under the diversity visa lottery program.
"It is crazy that so many years after 9/11, we continue to hand out, like PEZ candy, visas which are such a precious commodity," Malkin said on "Fox & Friends" Wednesday morning.
She pointed out that millions of people around the world are clamoring to enter the U.S. the right way, so the fact that we still admit people randomly is politically correct "insanity."
Malkin noted there have been multiple bills introduced in Congress that would have ended the diversity visa program, but lawmakers from both parties have failed to take action.
"How many more people have to die or be threatened before we get rid of this stupidity?" she wondered.
She added that many lawmakers have "twisted priorities" and are focusing on a fix for the Consideration of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
"They think that it is more important to have a DACA fix to protect 700,000 illegal aliens rather than get rid of these stupid programs that are endangering American lives," Malkin said.
