The House Freedom Caucus announced Monday that they would back a bill to end the diversity visa lottery.
The conservative group of lawmakers joined President Trump’s call to end the program in the wake of the terror attack in New York City last week. The suspect in the attack, Sayfullo Saipov, used the program to enter the U.S. in 2010.
The group threw their support behind a bill introduced by Rep. Bill Posey (R-Fla.).
“In the wake of the recent terrorist attack in New York City, we call on House leadership to follow President Trump’s call to end the diversity visa lottery program,” the caucus said in a statement.
