White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders briefed reporters on Wednesday afternoon, following a terror attack in Lower Manhattan on Tuesday that killed 8 people. Authorities said the suspect, Sayfullo Saipov, is an immigrant from Uzbekistan who pledged loyalty to ISIS.

President Donald Trump on Wednesday called for an end to the long-running green card lottery program, which admits roughly 50,000 immigrants annually from countries that are under-represented in U.S. immigration. Authorities said they believe Saipov entered the country in 2010 after winning a visa in the lottery.
