Can We End the Crazy Diversity Visa Lottery Yet?

Michelle Malkin, CNS News, October 3, 2014

Ebola has reached our shores from Africa. Dozens of children are reportedly suffering paralysis from a deadly virus with unknown origins. Medical providers across the country have warned of a looming public health crisis as communicable diseases spread unmonitored and uncontrolled. Other countries are cracking down. But America is stuck on open-borders stupid.

The Diversity Visa (DV) program, to take just one glaring example of government insanity, is still going.

On October 1, the State Department opened the annual DV random lottery to applicants from around the world. Yes, it’s completely random like a Powerball drawing. Up to 55,000 lucky winners will snag permanent residency visas (green cards), which put them on the path to American citizenship ahead of millions of other foreigners patiently waiting to come to this country.

The green card lotto winners’ spouses and unmarried children under 21 all get golden tickets into the country, too, no matter where they were born.

Illegal aliens are eligible if a legal family member wins the jackpot. Applicants don’t even need a high school education. No outstanding abilities, training or job skills are necessary. A handful of countries are excluded if they no longer qualify as “underrepresented.” But if you come from a terror-sponsoring or terror-friendly nation–such as Iran, Syria, Sudan, North Korea and more than a dozen officially designated terror enablers on the State Department’s list–no worries. Thousands from these breeding grounds for jihad will walk through our front doors.

This is what happens when bipartisan panderers in Washington get their way. The visa lottery was championed by left-wing social engineer Sen. Ted Kennedy and signed into law by President George H. W. Bush in 1990 to admit more “underrepresented” immigrant minorities into the U.S. Although originally intended to give a leg up to Irish illegal aliens who had overstayed their visas, most of the winners now hail from non-Western terror hot spots and hostile territories.

You know who else will get in? Untold numbers of “diversity” petitioners from Liberia, Sierra Leone and other West African countries where the Ebola virus is epidemic. If you think the feds will ensure that foreign visa-seekers with communicable diseases stay out, think again. The State Department now allows applicants with HIV to apply and enter. Those who suffer from tuberculosis, leprosy or other afflictions “of public health significance” can apply for waivers.

The Diversity Visa lottery program is a public health hazard and a national security risk that leaves our safety to random chance. But pleas to curtail or end the program since the 9/11 attacks have fallen on deaf ears.

    “Can We End the Crazy Diversity Visa Lottery Yet?” – Nope, sorry, America can still function as a viable state. We’re gonna have to keep going for now.

    – Sincerely, Management!

    • The wife constantly tells me the American people have not receive a sufficient beating, or series of beatings, that will redirect their fears. 9/11 temporarily moved the fear in the right direction, but the media and Democrats identified the potential for their embracing tradition early on (remember all the flags?) and that motivated them to begin their assault upon Bush 2 in earnest – to distract attention from Islam, and Clinton’s dithering that permitted the attack, and to congregate hate against Bush. It will take a considerable events, or series of events to radically change WHAT and WHOM the American people fear and open their eyes to the USA’s actual enemies.

  • No we can’t.

    Because diversity.

    • DaveMed

      Q: “Well, what’s so great about diversity?!”

      A: “Multiculturalism.”

      Rinse and repeat.

    • LHathaway

      Because it’s diversity. . .

    • propagandaoftruth

      I thought it had electrolytes. Where’s funbags? Oh there she is…

      • Garrett Brown

        Who is that?

        • propagandaoftruth

          That is “Funbags”, a character from Mike Judge’s “Idiocracy”.

          Judge, creater of “Beavis and Butthead”, “King of the Hill” and “Office Space”, has been documenting the rise of the Cult of Stupidity now for years.

          Pardon if too much info. Watch “Idiocracy” if nothing else. Very funny, farcically prophetic.

          • AutomaticSlim

            Funny thing is, “Funbags” was still a better A.G. than you know who…

          • propagandaoftruth

            I prefer their prezzy to ours actually…

            And nice ejucayshun secretary…

  • Mary

    No, we can’t end it. We have yet to import enough terrorists, welfare recipients, various criminals, AA beneficiaries, resource suckers, neighborhood and school destroyers, America haters, and socialism supporters. We still have a long way to go.

    • Right you are! After all, there’s an entire world out there of huddled masses that need to be imported, placed on welfare, given federal assistance ‘programs,’ and taught to hate the white man!

      • LHathaway

        You miss-spoke that. There’s an entire world out there that need to be imported, sent to college, given a government, AA, or solid middle class job, marry a white woman, and then be taught to hate the white man

  • Can we really call it insanity? Insanity implies the possibility of good intentions. This seems more like good old-fashioned treason to me.

    Hey, what’s the penalty for treason again?

  • LHathaway

    “The green card lotto winners’ spouses and unmarried children under 21 all get golden tickets into the country”

    I recently listen to Enoch Powell’s speech again (thanks to an AmRen poster who provided a link). Powell made note that, even if immigration were stopped, the growth would continue and the pyramid would keep stacking up as relatives or children of the immigrants married those back home and then for whatever reason more and more families were ‘reunified’ in the chain migration process.

    “The Diversity Visa (DV) program, to take just one glaring example of government insanity, is still going.”

    I didn’t realize that a purposeful and unilateral government program to ethnically cleanse Europeans was attributable to mental illness instead of a nefandous mens rea.

  • We could end it, if the majority of Americans vote in Nationalist party, or at least the Constitution party would slow it down at least. But with the democraps giving every thing away, and the republicans looking for a pool of cheap labor, it will not end.

    I’m gonna go with… NO for a Thousand Alex.

  • JackKrak

    20 years ago, it was enough to walk around New York, Los Angeles or Miami to see how ridiculous the idea that America needed more “diversity” was. Now it’s enough to walk around small towns in Texas, Kentucky and Colorado.

    Soon, the idea of having “diversity” lotteries to bring white people to America will make more sense than the current system ever has.

    • AutomaticSlim

      “to walk around small towns”

      Like Ferguson, Mo.
      Probably a really nice place, once upon a time.

      • Who Me?

        A friend who grew up there when it was 99% White. She says it really was nice…back then.

        • Homo_Occidentalis

          Did the white people move out, or did the negroes outbreed them?

          • Who Me?

            The blacks moved in, first one “nice” family, then another. They brought their cousins and their daughter’s boyfriends and their TNB with them. Property values dipped slightly, so more Whites sold. With prices cheaper, more Whites sold and more blacks bought, and brought more TNB, so houses got even cheaper … and round and round and round. You know, the typical White flight scenario.
            This happened to thousands of nice suburban neighborhoods all across the U.S.since the 60’s. It’s why I laugh when libtards say they “just LOVE” diverse neighborhoods. Sure honey, we’ll integrate YOUR neighborhood, and slash $100-250K off your property values in one fell swoop. Let’s see how fast you cut and run for an all White, civilized neighborhood. Your aren’t a racist? Not until your daughter reaches dating age, you aren’t. Get back to me on that one.

          • John Smith

            It’s never the first black families that are bad, but damn if they don’t bring their ghetto trash relations with them.

    • De’Ontavious Jizzaiah Jones

      Google articles about African and other immigrants being resettled in Maine. Maines current laws allow welfare benefits for non US citizens. So now illegals have flocked there and state is overwhelmed and finally realizing it needs to change law. In an article this week, an illegal interviewed openly admitted she had heard of Maine ‘ s generous welfare program and so chose to go there.

      • Homo_Occidentalis

        Maine will not remain 94% white for long. As recently as 1990, it was 98% white. Pretty soon it will be down to the level of Kansas or Wisconsin, states which were once 98%+ white but which are now hovering near 80%. and dropping fast.

        Hopefully the snow will keep most of the browns out.

        • Lynn Munoz

          Doesn’t Maine now have a new (supposedly conservative) governor now? There might be hope politically.

        • John Smith

          Detroit is mighty cold and we see how that went.

  • dave

    Diversity will end when the last white is killed or driven out of the country. War has been declared, either we fight or die.

  • John Smith

    There a towns full of these Africans working at the chicken and beef processing plants. That’s right folks, your food supply. They ship them in specifically for these plants. And they get EBT cards.

    • Lynn Munoz

      This might be a good time to start watching one’s diet more carefully. Less meat, more vegetables/fruit, vegetarian/vegan meals. Besides what you’re saying, I’ve heard too many horror stories about our meat supply anyway.

  • Sue

    “But pleas to curtail or end the program since the 9/11 attacks have fallen on deaf ears.”
    That’s because they know the real culprits of 9/11!

  • Truthseeker

    If we die out, so do the benefits of everything our people built. Then we’ll be “racist” for not staying alive to support them, I’m sure.

  • guest

    DIE-versity – now a known killer along with AIDS, cancer, heart disease, and strokes to name but a few.

  • John R

    “The Diversity Visa lottery program is a public health hazard and a national security risk that leaves our safety to random chance.”
    Yes true. But I will take it further: ALL IMMIGRATION. Legal and otherwise, is the same.

    • TL2014

      I think that statement is too sweeping. There are most definitely desirable immigrants out there. It’s just that current policy discriminates against them.

  • proud white

    darn, I though I had more time before the country crumbled. now where did I put that bucket list……

  • Paleoconn

    Diversity is our strength is such a ridiculous mottos. It suggests that it is our only strength.

    In reality, besides food and music, there is nothing diversity offers of any value.

    New mottoes: diversity cannot be spelled without D I E
    Diversity is the future. A short one.
    Diversity macht frei

  • LHathaway

    I can see someone under 40 years old thinking, ‘Diversity Visa Lottery’ what else would one call it? But really, our national leaders seriously gave it the name ‘Diversity Visa Lottery’? That’s the title of the program?

  • willbest

    Sane policies will not be tolerated!

  • Who Me?

    Although originally intended to give a leg up to Irish illegal aliens who had overstayed their visas, most of the winners now hail from non-Western terror hot spots and hostile territories.
    _____________________
    If this bill was intended to “help the Irish” why didn’t they just say so. Whatever happened to plain speaking and saying what you mean?

  • TL2014

    I don’t know. My family got here through the “diversity lottery” (we came from a European country). The program could be tweaked so that there is emphasis on countries likely to produce the kind of immigrant we would want here.

    • Mary

      Yes, a little desirable diversity for a change—Europeans. But, that simply does not conform to the agenda. They’re trying to diminish us, not recruit us.

  • WR_the_realist

    Allowing for spouses and children the diversity lottery alone probably amounts to 150,000 additional immigrants per year. That’s more than half of what total immigration was when I was a boy.

    It’s an insane program. So of course congress voted for it and will never repeal it. And if congress did repeal it, Obama would recreate it by executive order.

  • baldridge999

    White genocide takes precedence over all other concerns, even public safety.

    • Mary

      Yes, and diversity is the highest good, while racism is the most vile evil (formerly murder was in more sane times).

  • Anna Tree

    Thank you for the link. Great article. The author theory about the media class is logic.

    • Epiminondas

      Please pass on that link to others who might gain by it.

  • THis issue wouldn’t be an issue, if Ted “Chappaquidick” Kennedy and his pals didn’t radically alter US immigration policy in the mid 1960s. That Act was named Hart-Celler (prolly so Ted could avoid complicity) Teddy must have hated America for his brother’s fate, OR, he was more aligned with LBJ than he would ever admit. Hart-Celler changed the century old practice of limiting applicants to Western European Christians – primarily. Ted’s work mandated DIVERSITY in immigration policy. Apparently, limiting immigration ot Ted’s ethnic compadres wouldn’t do. Bringing in people who would likely never assimilate and who would demand they be afforded special rights and priviledges while retaining their ethnic and cultural heritage was the die cast. This monumental change was missed – along with the No-Bid military contracts being funneled to Brown-Root – later to be come Kellogg Brown Root Haliburton; then Haliburton. KBR financed LBJ’s political career!!! Lady Bird Johnson, LBJ’s wife was a majority share holder in Brown Root. “…They (Brown-Root) got all of the contracts to build the bases, roads, and airports in Vietnam – and the Johnson became millionaires. Not to mention that NASA’s Houston Control (duplicate of Cape Canaveral), was built by B-R and ordered by Johnson. It soon became the largest construction company in the USA.” The American public was oblivious to the B-R collusion and most of the War on Poverty laws enacted – as they were distracted – force fed Viet Nam War deaths nightly. As welfare et al climbs past 60% of the nations budget and funnels dependency votes to Democrats who now seek to permanently change the ethnic complexion of the USA, few know, or are willing to admit the underlying causality – or identify it and change it.
