Washington (CNN) — President Donald Trump, during a White House Cabinet meeting Wednesday, said he wants to terminate the Diversity Visa Lottery, a program that distributes around 50,000 visas to countries where there is a low rate of immigration to the US.

"I am, today, starting the process of terminating the diversity lottery program," Trump said, seated next to Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis. "I am going to ask Congress to immediately initiate work to get rid of this program, diversity lottery, diversity lottery. Sounds nice, it is not nice, it is not good. It hasn't been good and we have been against it."

He added: "We're going to quickly as possible get rid of chain migration and move to a merit-based system."

It's too soon to be discussing any changes to the law. Why is he politicizing a tragedy?

As it says in the link, this terrorist came in through the diversity program.

Would you rather not discuss changing the law and have a moment of silence instead?

Honestly, Noldor's response was the most perfect thing I could have possibly hoped for.

Thanks, Noldor.

Also, just to point out - "Chain migration" in reference to federal immigration policy is straight-up white supremacist speak. Good to know Stephen Miller and the ultra-nationalists still have Trump's ear on these things. Can't wait to see Spencer, Cernovich, et al. calling this a win for their side.

I didn't even know this was a thing.

It's been around since the (first) Bush admin. as a way to promote immigration from countries where we don't get as many applicants.

There is still, obviously, the same security screening process for each individual as there would be for any other type of resident visa. It isn't just as easy as getting your name pulled out of a hat and getting issued a green card.

What makes Trump's remarks doubly stupid is when he starts talking about "chain migration."
That's the white supremacist/nationalist term for the part of our immigration law that allows current immigrants (once they've become citizens or gotten PR cards) to sponsor family members to come here. It's absolutely nothing to do with the diversity visa program, or anything relating to this guy, to my knowledge.

So do we have to pay the KKK a nickel every time we use their term ('Chain Migration)?

You seem to be the only one claiming the connection...

1. Who said anything about the KKK?

2. A single CNN article not mentioning the connection == I'm the only one? OK.

Yeah, I'm definitely not reading anything from the Daily Mail. You really need to learn how to vet sources, don't you?

What do you want, links to white supremacist websites? No thanks. I'm not interested in a blood pressure spike this afternoon because you won't do your own research.

After trying to find this story somewhere else, I came up with:

Sean Hannity's TV show
Breitbart
the same Daily Mail article linked from a whole bunch of other sites

Everything else has just been "Trump claimed" this thing about the 23 family members, which is basically completely worthless, given how much he lies on a daily basis.

Even the Mail article is reporting that "Trunp claims"

It's not a matter or me being unwilling to do the research- - the only source I can find claiming that 'chain migration' is 'white supremacist term' is you...

Coz that's what this is all about.
