Default Diversity Visa Program

Have you heard of this program? It's a lottery system for visas for people who come from countries that are under represented in our country. That's how this scumbag got here.

Passed in 1990 came in in 1995. Thank you Chuck Schumer who sponsored bill for the program. About 55K / year. The individuals apply on line for free.

Its a damn shame most Americans will never know Schumer is responsible for this and if enough do find out the media will tell them Schumer tried to get rid of this law but never inform the people that what he really did was try and use it to get amnesty for more illegals.

Its long over due that the GOP finds a way to inform people outside of Trumps twitter feed.

This is one of the most insane things I've heard of. Never knew it existed. WTF? From what I understand it is basically like buying a scratch off ticket at a convenience store. You just win a lottery to come to the US? 50k Democrat votes? Wow.

These "terrorist attacks" coming from recent Middle East immigrants should be a wake up call to deal with border security and immigration reform. Trump understands that and needs to work through the promises that got him elected. He got his first Conservative SCOTUS in the first year and hopefully can get a bullet proof border security plan implemented in the second year. If something isn't done soon we will be rotted out from within sooner than later. Without a secure border which protects us all kinds of threats enter the country. Go Trump get it done.

We need to start by getting rid of the rot in Congress, on both sides of the aisle.

Lol, this might be true however, you've left out the important part. It was stuffed into a bill as a rider by Chuck Schumer. Btw, there is an audio clip of Chuck bragging about how he was the mastermind of getting this through.

As a side note, technically it was Ted Kennedy who thought up a stupid program like this year's before. He targeted it for the Irish because he thought they were mistreated for years. It had always been one of these temporary/authorize it each year until Chucky made it permanent.
