Republican lawmakers: New York attacker entered US on diversity visa
WASHINGTON - The House and Senate judiciary committees said on Wednesday that the suspect in Tuesday's attack in New York entered the United States on a so-called diversity visa from Uzbekistan in 2010.

"According to reports to my office, Saipov is a lawful permanent resident who immigrated to the United States from Uzbekistan on a diversity visa over five years ago," Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley wrote in a letter to the secretary of state and the acting secretary of homeland security.

In a separate statement, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte called for the program to be terminated.
