Yesterday, New York City was struck by a terrorist attack that claimed eight innocent lives and severely injured at least 11 more. But the tragic truth is that this is one massacre that could have been prevented.

The terrorist, Uzbekistan national Sayfullo Saipov, entered the U.S. via the Diversity Visa Program, a little-known immigration policy that awards citizenship to thousands of immigrants every year via a lottery system.

President Donald Trump tweeted several times in condemnation of this program on Wednesday:

The terrorist came into our country through what is called the “Diversity Visa Lottery Program,” a Chuck Schumer beauty. I want merit based.

“Senator Chuck Schumer helping to import Europe’s problems” said Col. Tony Shaffer. We will stop this craziness!

Other Chilling Facts

While politicians debate the policies that allowed Saipov to enter the U.S., Americans are slowly uncovering more facts about the terror suspect, who is in police custody.

So far, it is known that Saipov has lived in the U.S. since 2010, and has a Florida driver’s license but is believed to have a residence in New Jersey. For a time, he worked as an Uber driver.

Saipov is also now known to be an ISIS sympathizer; a pro-ISIS note was found in the rented Home Depot truck that he used to barrel through a bike lane in lower Manhattan. Investigators have also found evidence of Saipov pledging his loyalty to the terrorist group.

Investigators have so far released information claiming that Saipov was “proud” of his attack and admitted that he had been radicalized in an American mosque. The FBI has already raided the Omar Mosque in New Jersey, which Saipov regularly attended, among other places that Saipov frequented.

A neighbor told reporters from Fox News that Saipov was “cordial” and “peaceful,” though they often went for rides with “two other guys” in the Home Depot truck, which was parked in front of Saipov’s house for weeks. The neighbor said he wasn’t sure what exactly they were up to:

They didn’t look like construction workers. They weren’t dressed like they were going to work.

The Attack

Saipov’s massacre was called a terrorist attack almost immediately for obvious reasons: for fourteen blocks, the Uzbek killer drove the wrong way on a bike path heading toward the World Trade Center.

The majority of those he killed in his behind-the-wheel rampage were foreign nationals, including four from Argentina and one from Belgium.

The terrorist then collided with a school bus and exited his damaged vehicle with what were later discovered to be a paintball gun and a pellet gun, and shouted “Allahu Akbar.” Soon after, New York City police officer Ryan Nash shot Saipov in the stomach to stop him from advancing.

More information is likely to become available as the FBI continues their investigation of the suspect.
