Is Trump's call for End to Visa Program justified after Manhattan Terror Attack?

President Donald Trump has called for an immediate end to the Diversity Visa Lottery Program that was developed with the aim of expanding the immigrant population in the US. This action was the outcome of Manhattan terror attack which left 11 people injured and 8 dead. And since it was discovered that the man who carried out the attack had used the diversity visa (won in a lottery) to enter the country, some action was expected.

This visa program had earlier drawn criticism for giving rise to visa frauds, increasing the threat to national security. However, I feel that it has also served the purpose of diversifying the population. So, to what extent is Trump's call to end the program justified when it comes to ensuring national security?

No it is not justified as it will limit tourism


Yes, in a way. But I am not sure.

There will always be loopholes to some decisions. Can't say anything.

No what needs to be done is a national broadcast where people are told that perpetrating any kind of crime is senseless and stupid and the conflict in some countries can only be brought down by the people of that country 

No, I don't think so. Actions of one person do not represent the ideas of all.

Yes it is
