( Fox News ) President Trump vowed Wednesday to scrap the federal immigration program that allowed the New York City truck terrorist to enter the United States, and said “animals” like the suspect in Tuesday’s attack belong in Guantanamo Bay.
“We have to come up with a punishment that much worse than what these animals are getting now,” said Trump, who is asking Congress to end the diversity visa program.
… Trump took aim Wednesday at the diversity immigration program, as well as others that allow “chain migration,” in which immigrants can enter the country simply to be united with a relative already living here.
The type of visa Saipov possessed could theoretically have allowed dozens of his family members into the U.S.
“We will take all of the necessary steps to take care of our communities and our country has a whole,” Trump also said Wednesday. “What we have now is a joke and a laughingstock.”
The president instead wants foreigners allowed into the country only under merit-based programs.
“We’re so politically correct, we’re afraid to do anything,” he said.
It’s imploding! The collusion story about Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya meeting with Donald Trump Jr. June 2016 is a belly flop. She is now facing her own controversy after it’s revealed the Russian plant actually worked with the Democrats for years and got her special visa to stay in US is courtesy of Barack Obama’s AG Loretta Lynch.
The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group revealed on Wednesday that California Rep. Ron Dellums was a hired lobbyist for Veselnitskaya.
According to a Washington Post story, she worked for years on a case with Glenn Simpson, the founder of Fusion GPS, a firm that produced a widely discredited dossier against Trump.
She also worked with Christopher Cooper, the founder and CEO of Potomac Square Group, which has had Democratic clients including California Government Jerry Brown, Democratic presidential nominee Howard Dean, and Joe Trippi, according to the Daily Caller.
And it was Obama’s Attorney General Loretta Lynch that granted her an extension in late 2015 to stay in the U.S. after her visa was due to expire, under “extraordinary circumstances” related to defending a case in New York, according to The Hill. She was granted an extension through January, but it’s not yet clear how she was able to be in the U.S. in June 2016, when she met with Trump Jr., and again January 2017.
Four days after her meeting with Trump Jr. on June 9, 2016, she was in Washington, D.C. for a movie screening of an anti-Magnitsky Act film at the Newseum with at least five congressional staffers and State Department officials, according to The Hill.
The next day she attended a House hearing, sitting in the front row behind Obama’s former U.S. Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul, who was testifying, according to photos of the hearing. McFaul has taken to Twitter to claim that Republicans placed her there, apparently next to his family members, and has denied any meetings with her.
Around that time, Veselnitskaya also attended a dinner with the chairman of the House subcommittee overseeing Russia policy, Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA), and about 20 other guests, according to the The Hill. Rohrabacher said he believed she and Dellums were there lobbying other lawmakers to reverse the Magnitsky Act.
WOW! Time for the left to find a new spin on their DNC plant, beloved Russian agent Natalia Veselnitskaya!
When asked by far-left Daily Beast how Natalia re-entered US after her special permission from AG Loretta Lynch expired in January 2016 and how she was able to mingle with Washington D.C. crowd like a pro and meet with Donald Trump Jr., she has no answer. Even the crickets won’t answer. According to Daily Beast:
Veselnitskaya also did not respond to requests for comment.
Russian babe lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya is suppose to be the latest bombshell on Trump-Russia saga. She now looks like a villain character from a James Bond movie – like a Russian spy chosen by the Obama administration to create their fake Trump-Russia collusion hysteria.
In the new twist to the story, we can see the dirty hands of Obama administration all over the story:
- In late 2015, she was granted special permission by then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch to enter the United States even though she didn’t have a visa.
‘In October  the government bypassed the normal visa process and gave a type of extraordinary permission to enter the country called immigration parole,’ Assistant US Attorney Paul Monteleoni told a federal judge during a court hearing on January 6, 2016. ‘That’s a discretionary act that the statute allows the Attorney General to do in extraordinary circumstances.
- In January 2016, her visa expired.
- The State Department would not confirm or deny whether Veselnitskaya applied again for a visa in 2016, let alone if a visa was granted
- In June 2016, she met at Trump Tower with Donald Trump Jr, campaign chair Paul Manafort, and Jared Kushner
- Veselnitskaya also did not respond to requests for comment.

The State Department would not confirm or deny whether Veselnitskaya applied again for a visa in 2016, let alone if a visa was granted
A spokesperson told The Daily Beast the State Department could not comment due to privacy considerations.
Veselnitskaya also did not respond to requests for comment.
NO VISA! OBAMA DOJ GAVE RUSSIAN LAWYER NATALIA VESELNITSKAYA PERMISSION TO STAY IN U.S. WITHOUT VISA – WHY?
- Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya had an expired visa in early 2016.
- Obama Justice Department allowed her to enter US under “extraordinary circumstances” – like learn to play the Russian agent against Trump Jr. ?
- Natalia embarked on a lobbying campaign in 2016 that led to meeting with the president’s eldest son, members of Congress, journalists and State Department officials, according to court and Justice Department documents and interviews.
- The State Department would not confirm or deny whether Veselnitskaya applied again for a visa in 2016, let alone if a visa was granted. A spokesperson told The Daily Beast the State Department could not comment due to privacy considerations. Veselnitskaya also did not respond to requests for comment.
The far-left Daily Beast reported:
She (Natalia) then asked federal prosecutors for permission to enter the U.S. to work on behalf of a client in a Manhattan. Prosecutors granted Veselnitskaya temporary “immigration parole” in late 2015 but it expired in early 2016, the U.S. Attorney’s Office of the Southern District of New York told The Daily Beast.
Veselnitskaya’s parole was not renewed, the U.S. Attorney’s Office added.
That raises the question of how Veselnitskaya was able to enter the U.S. in June 2016 when she visited Trump Tower.
The State Department would not confirm or deny whether Veselnitskaya applied again for a visa in 2016, let alone if a visa was granted. A spokesperson told The Daily Beast the State Department could not comment due to privacy considerations. Veselnitskaya also did not respond to requests for comment.
In January 2016, Veselnitskaya filed a declaration to extend her parole past that month. The U.S. Attorney’s Office objected.
Report from The Hill:
The Russian lawyer who penetrated Donald Trump’s inner circle was initially cleared into the United States by the Justice Department under “extraordinary circumstances” before she embarked on a lobbying campaign last year that ensnared the president’s eldest son, members of Congress, journalists and State Department officials, according to court and Justice Department documents and interviews.
This revelation means it was the Obama Justice Department that enabled the newest and most intriguing figure in the Russia-Trump investigation to enter the country without a visa. Later, a series of events between an intermediary for the attorney and the Trump campaign ultimately led to the controversy surrounding the president’s eldest son.
3-MONTH-OLD ‘TERRORIST’ BABY INTERVIEWED AT US EMBABASSY AFTER GRANDFATHER ACCIDENTALLY CHECKED ‘YES’ ON TERROR QUESTION
For real? A three-month old British baby called to appear in US embassy for interview after grandfather accidentally checked ‘yes’ to question related to terrorism, espionage and genocide.
A three-month old British ‘terrorist’ baby was summoned to the US embassy for an interview, after his grandfather accidentally ticked the wrong box on a visa form.
Paul Kenyon was filling out his grandson’s visa waiver form before the family went to Orlando, Florida when he accidentally ticked yes for the question, “Do you seek to engage in or have you ever engaged in terrorist activities, espionage, sabotage, or genocide?”
Kenyon only realized his mistake when the baby was refused a visa.
“I couldn’t believe that they couldn’t see it was a genuine mistake and that a three-month-old baby would be no harm to anyone,” Kenyon was quoted as saying.
The baby was brought to the London embassy to meet with officials. The round trip from Cheshire to London and back took about 10 hours, longer than the flight to Florida.
“I thought about taking him along in an orange jumpsuit, but thought better of it,” said Kenyon. “They didn’t appear to have a sense of humor over it at all and couldn’t see the funny side.”
“He’s obviously never engaged in genocide, or espionage, but he has sabotaged quite a few nappies in his time, though I didn’t tell them that at the US embassy,” he said.
Harvey’s new visa didn’t arrive on time and he and his parents had to book new flights to join the rest of the family in Florida a few days later.
“If you were a terrorist, I suspect you’d not be ticking yes on the ESTA form anyway,” Kenyon pointed out.
