THE DIVERSITY VISA LOTTERY PROGRAM IS DANGEROUS.
On Tuesday, October 31, Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov killed eight and injured eleven others with a rented truck in New York City. This terrorist was allowed into the United States through the Diversity Visa Lottery program.
Why is the Diversity Visa Lottery Program dangerous?
- The program does not involve proper vetting
- The program does not require the immigrant to have a sponsor
- The only requirement is the immigrants must be adults with a high school diploma OR two years of recent work experience.
- Winners are allowed to bring their spouses and children
- There is no application fee
About 45,000 to 55,000 individuals come here on green cards issued by this program every year. This program must end. America needs a way to vet immigrants and keep our citizens safe.
