The Real Problem With the Diversity Visa Lottery Program

Share

Government officials have long warned that the program is a serious security threat.

“Diversity lottery. Sounds nice. It’s not nice. It’s not good. It hasn’t been good. We’ve been against it,” Donald Trump stated. “We have to get much tougher. We have to get much smarter. And we have to get much less politically correct,” he continued. On Wednesday, Trump singled out Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) for his role in propping up the State Department program known as the Diversity Visa Lottery, which allowed the New York City terrorist to enter the country seven years ago. Trump tweeted, “We are fighting hard for Merit Based immigration, no more Democrat Lottery Systems. We must get MUCH tougher (and smarter).”

Also on Wednesday, several senators took up Trump’s call to end the Diversity Visa Lottery, created in 1990. “We ought to be more focused and more merit-oriented when it comes to our immigration program. There’s always going to have to be a combination of family-based immigration, but we also ought to reward people who we want to see come to this country and help us grow our economy,” Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) stated. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) echoed his comments, saying, “Count me in for wanting to eliminate the lottery system for merit-based immigration.”
