White House claims Trump's immigration plans could have prevented NYC attack

"And any chain migration would certainly be a part of that process", Sanders added.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions is also supporting ending chain migration and the visa lottery. Mandhai immigrated to the US on the basis of his parents' visa lottery win.

"Over time, the combination of the diversity visa program and the laws allowing extended family migration result in the admission of hundreds of thousands of immigrants without any assessment of whether their job skills meet any sort of USA economic need and without any consideration of the immigrants' age, education, English language ability, or close connection to the United States", said Cissna.

"The Department of Homeland Security will use every legal option available to keep Americans safe", DHS spokesman Tyler Houlton said in a statement.

Calling his executive action to restrict travel from six Muslim-majority nations - in addition to travel from North Korea and for some Venezuelan officials and their families - "just one step", Trump argued for further congressional action. Noting that the president's policy has called for an end to chain migration and if that had been in place, that would have prevented the individual (from Bangladesh) from coming to the United States, she said Trump is aggressively going to continue to push forth responsible immigration reform.

India, Russia, China jointly condemn terrorism
The Chinese minister met minister of external affairs Sushma Swaraj in New Delhi on Monday ahead of the RIC meeting. And it will be better to meet again and without agenda, which will help us to expand our mutual understanding.

Sanders could not answer a follow-up question about whether the individual had been radicalized in the United States in the years he's lived here, as have recent terrorist attackers in the U.S. who were not natural born citizens.

President Donald Trump tweeted last month that he would like to see chain migration end.

"The best bill out there is the RAISE Act, which was introduced by Senators Tom Cotton and David Perdue", he says.

First and foremost, 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. Family connections, including spouses, children and extended family, account for a large share of green cards given out each year. After five years, a lottery victor is eligible to become USA citizen, enabling them to then sponsor an even wider range of distant relatives. Those families still must meet eligibility requirements to enter the USA and are screened and interviewed. "Congress must also act on my Administration's other proposals to enhance domestic security, including increasing the number of Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers, enhancing the arrest and detention authorities for immigration officers, and ending fraud and abuse in our immigration system".
