Chuck Schumer thought he had Donald Trump trapped in a corner.

The Senate’s top Democrat was hoping he could jam Trump on amnesty and ride the voter backlash to victory in the midterm elections.

But he just woke up to the worst news of his life.

A radical Islamic terrorist murdered eight Americans after plowing a van down the West Side Highway in New York City.

The terrorist left a note in the truck claiming affiliation with ISIS.

Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov – an immigrant from Uzbekistan – allegedly won entry into America in 2010 through the “diversity” lottery.

The diversity lottery was the brainchild of then Congressman Chuck Schumer who included it as part of a 1990 immigration act that passed Congress.

Breitbart reports:

“The Democrats’ Senate leader, N.Y. Sen. Chuck Schumer helped create the diversity visa program which reportedly provided a green card to the Islamic immigrant who allegedly killed eight New Yorkers on October 31.

The diversity visa program was created in 1990 by then-Rep. Schumer in response to Irish lobbies in his New York district. Twenty-seven years later, it annually awards 50,000 visas by annual lottery to entrants from around the world, ensuring a cascade of subsequent chain-migrants…

…Schumer’s diversity visa plan was included in the House-approved “Family Unity and Employment Opportunity Immigration Act of 1990” when it was combined with a proposal by a Democratic from Boston. The resulting “Schumer visa” measure was included in the completed Immigration Act of 1990, which also raised the annual inflow of legal immigrants up from 500,000 up to 700,000. The bill was signed by then-President George H.W. Bush.

The diversity visa program offers green cards to 50,000 lottery applicants each year. Lottery winners undergo a State Department interview and health check, and can then bring their spouses and minor children to the United States and get them on a five-year track to citizenship.

Once a winner and a spouse become citizens, they can import their parents, their in-laws and their children, plus the parents of their in-laws, such as the winner’s spouse’s sister’s husband’s parents. In turn, the relatives can later become citizens and import their relatives. The chain-migration process does not set any skill tests for admission, and so delivers a growing flow of unskilled and uneducated — and often ill, elderly and retired migrants — to the nation’s extensive welfare system.”

Donald Trump took to Twitter and lit Schumer up for his allegiance to open borders instead of America.

He also pointed out that he was willing to make a deal for pro-America immigration reforms, such as making the immigration lottery a merit based system in order to ensure only the best are coming to America and the nation is not handing out golden tickets to radical Islamists.

Republicans won the 2014 and 2016 elections campaigning against Barack Obama’s amnesty programs – which were championed by Chuck Schumer – and securing the border.

If the GOP sticks to this platform and fights for Trump’s pro-America immigration policies, they will rout the Democrats in the midterms.
