"Today's terror suspect entered our country through extended-family chain migration, which is incompatible with national security", the President said. The bill would lower legal immigration levels by half and put an end to both chain migration and the visa lottery. "Congress must also act on my administration's other proposals to enhance domestic security". He also noted that foreign nationals from countries that are state sponsors of terrorism are allowed to apply for the lottery, which awards 50,000 green cards annually. Mandhai immigrated to the US on the basis of his parents' visa lottery win. CBS News confirmed via the Department of Homeland Security that Ullah arrived in the U.S.in 2011 through "extended family chain migration". Ullah is a lawful permanent resident, or green card holder, spokesman Tyler Houlton said. Trump said his executive action to restrict the entry of certain nationals from eight countries, which the Supreme Court recently allowed to take effect, is just one step forward in "securing" the immigration system. "If that had been in place, that would have prevented this individual from coming to the United States", White House press secretary Sarah Huckebee Sanders told reporters Monday afternoon. "And so we know that the President's policy calls for an end to chain migration, which is what this individual came to the United States through", Sanders said during a press briefing. After the attack, President Trump called on Congress and the Department of Justice to end the program.

"As I have been saying since I first announced my candidacy for president, America must fix its lax immigration system, which allows far too many risky, inadequately vetted people to access our country", Trump said in response to the attack.

"If these sources are correct, this further highlights the need to consider whether our country is best served by a family, non-skills based legal immigration system", Grassley, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, wrote to the Trump officials.

He's demanded that Congress make good on that promise in the near future, as part of a legislative solution for people living in the country under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.
