Diversity visa or Green card lottery visa issued by the department of homeland security to foreign nationals for diversifying the US populations has hit a roadblock. President Donald Trump on a recent Twitter message has vowed to cancel the Diversity Lottery visa a.k.a US Green card lottery. He vowed to cancel the popular visa program after an attack was carried out by an Immigrant who entered US under the program. The attack was named as the deadliest attack on the United States since 9/11.
Mr. President said on twitter – “Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov, who ploughed a pickup truck down a crowded bike path near the World Trade Centre killing eight people and injuring 11 others in an ISIS-inspired plot, was allowed to enter the US on a State Department programme known as the “Diversity Lottery Programme”.
“I am starting the process of terminating the diversity lottery programme,” Trump told reporters ahead of a cabinet meeting.
“Today we mourn the horrifying terrorist attack in New York City just blocks away from the sight of the world trade center. The man drove a truck into a pedestrian bike path and murdered eight people and injured very, very seriously at least 11 more,” Trump said.
“All of America is praying and grieving for the families who lost their precious loved ones. Horrible Act. Our hearts break for them and we pledge to renew our resolve in their memory,” he said.
Well, I know after hearing all these stuff on your national media, there is one simple question on your head. Will the Diversity Visa Lottery be canceled anytime soon?
As of now, Donald Trump alone cannot decide the future of Diversity Visa Lottery system. He can’t cancel any immigration program at his whim, so for getting the visa program canceled he has to go through several layers of US laws and debates on the issue.
So, You don’t have worry about the current news, there won’t be any sudden ban on Diversity Visa Lottery or another immigrant visa programs.
