Tragedy was narrowly averted on Monday morning when an Islamic terrorist named Akayed Ullah failed to detonate the homemade pipe bomb he’d intended for New York City subway passengers. Ullah was yet another walking, talking condemnation of U.S. immigration policy, following hot on the heels of October’s scumbag – another NYC terrorist who arrived in America thanks to the brilliant idea known as the diversity lottery program. Ullah wasn’t here because of the lottery program but for an even more absurd reason – his uncle is a naturalized U.S. citizen who sponsored him for a visa. His uncle, however, did come here on the lottery program. So it all comes back to that.
We’re still not sure what purpose it serves to invite random idiots from Uzbekistan (the first terrorist) or Bangladesh (this reject) for the sake of improving our country’s “diversity.” Are Uzbekistan and Bangladesh busy inviting Chinese people into their country for that reason? Is there any concern amongst the governments of those countries that there aren’t enough white protestants driving Ubers around town? No? We didn’t think so. It’s time to give up this idiotic notion that there is something magical and transformative about diversity and multiculturalism. We’re not saying diversity is a bad thing, but we’ve come to the point where it’s seen as the ultimate good, which is patently absurd. America – especially metropolitan places like New York City – are, if anything, diverse enough as it is.
So that’s one issue. The other issue is the subject of chain migration, which President Trump addressed in a speech on Tuesday.
“We’re gonna end both of them,” Trump said of the diversity lottery and chain migration. “We’re going to end ’em. Fast. Congress must get involved immediately, and they are involved immediately, and I can tell you we have tremendous support.”
Yeah, we’ll see. With a razor-thin margin in the Senate, a hostile party in the Democrats, and plenty of Republicans who seem to think that our country is better when we throw open the doors to every kook Muslim within a 9,000-mile radius, we’re not getting our hopes up. If this were a country governed by common sense, that would be one thing, because it takes nothing other than common sense (and, perhaps, a basic understanding of how unrestrained immigration is killing Western Europe) to solve this problem.
But if we had that common sense, chain migration and the diversity lottery would have never been legislated in the first place.
