NYC terror suspect entered US via diversity visa program
WASHINGTON - The Department of Homeland Security says the suspect in the New York City truck attack entered the United States in 2010 under the diversity visa program.
Homeland Security officials are confirming that the immigrant from Uzbekistan arrived in the U.S. that way.

The Diversity Immigrant Visa Program covers immigrants from countries with low rates of immigration to the U.S.
