Whoa! Look how many other people came in with NYC terrorist through “Diversity Lottery Program”

Sayfullo Saipov’s arrival in the United States in 2010 began unceremoniously in Ohio.

“My dad introduced him as, ‘He’s new to the United States, and he’s going to stay with us,’ ” said Bekhzod Abdusamatov, 22.

Mr. Saipov, the suspect in the terrorist attack in Lower Manhattan that killed eight people on Tuesday, arrived from Tashkent — the Uzbek capital and its largest city — knowing little English, Mr. Abdusamatov said.

He spent those early days in the United States looking for a job and trying to improve his English, Mr. Abdusamatov said. But he was also a late sleeper.

About 24,000 people have entered the U.S. from the country of Uzbekistan since 2005. Of those that came in, NYC terrorist Sayfullo Saipov reportedly brought in 23 friends and family members.
