Oh joy! more Russians*** and more Egyptians to help speed up the goal of changing America by changing the people!
I guess most of you know by now that we have a legal immigration program called the Diversity Visa Lottery (aka Green Card Lottery) because America isn’t sufficiently diversified and each year 50,000 US citizen wannabes from around the world (except from countries that have sent 50,000 of their people recently) get a ticket to Anytown, USA.
The President has voiced his opposition to the giveaway, but so far Congress continues to support the program.
Here the Miami Herald tells us who the lucky winners are this year:
Egyptian and Russian citizens won the most U.S. green cards in this year’s random visa lottery
More than 23 million people from around the world — the applicants and their family members or “derivatives” — tried this year to legally immigrate to the United States and achieve the American Dream through the visa lottery program, the U.S. State Department statistics show.
Winners were selected through a randomized computer drawing from over 14 million qualified entries received during the 34-day application period last year.
According to the department, the visas were distributed among six geographic regions “with a maximum of seven percent available to persons born in any single country.”
The two countries that won most immigrant visas were Egypt and Russia, with 5,568 and 5,118 winners, respectively, of this year’s DV-2020 diversity lottery, followed by the Democratic Republic of Congo (4,743 applicants selected), Iran (4,101), Nepal (3,696) and Sudan (3,691).
What the hell!
Are we moving the whole of the DR Congo to America?
We’ve ‘welcomed’ 50,000 from the DR Congo already as refugees, see here, and they are streaming across the US border illegally and ending up in Maine, here, and we still take thousands from that African hot mess of a country through the lottery!
The Miami Herald continues….
Last year, Iran received the highest number of visas — 4,199 — followed by the Democratic Republic of Congo (4,186), Egypt, Ukraine (4,025) and Ethiopia (3,856).
In the Americas region, natives from Cuba benefited the most from this year’s DV-2020 drawing, and 2,703 Cuban nationals were selected at random for a green card. It is a substantial increase compared to last year, when only 326 citizens of Cuba won. [Really, Cuba! we don’t have enough migrants from Cuba?—-ed]
The visa lottery is one of the immigration programs that President Donald Trump has openly criticized. He has said that the “worst of the worst” are selected in the cost-free process.
“About 70 percent of immigrants who come to the United States today are admitted based on family relationships or through a random visa lottery —a system that favors random chance over the skills our economy needs,” President Trump’s Immigration Plan for the 21st Century says.

***Coincidentally my friend Richard just yesterday sent me a 2018 story from VDARE (Mainstream media won’t name Medicare Fraudsters) which educates us to the fact that a very large amount of Medicare fraud is linked to immigrant fraudsters with Russians topping the list. Ah, the joys of diversity!
