Back in April, I described the "changes" Obama was making to immigration from terror nations under the diversity and religious visa program. Changes. President hopeychange wasted no time in opening up the visa
regulations, beginning with "religious visas." Before, whoever wanted
to enter as a supposed missionary needed to demonstrate his/her
affiliation with a religious institution for at least two years. Now they changed it to almost no proof at all.
Another type of visa that is dangerous is an IV (Immigrant Visa). This is what is called a "Diversity" visa
— a class of immigrants known as “diversity immigrants.” Diversity
Visas (DV) each fiscal year are made available to persons from
countries with low rates of immigration to the United States. The
annual DV program makes visas available to persons meeting the simple eligibility
requirements. A computer-generated, random lottery drawing chooses
selectees for diversity visas. The visas are distributed among six
geographic regions, with a greater number of visas going to regions
with lower rates of immigration.
The numbers are staggering, but still not fast enough for some. Today's Arab News Online reported, "Saudi students and travelers complain that the president could do
something about the visa processing issue".
For June alone, immigrant numbers in the Diversity Visa category, broken down by regions/eligible countries, are as follows:
Africa 39,600 Except: Egypt 20,650 ("Palestinians" are in this group)
Ethiopia 19,500 (includes Somalis)
Europe 28,000 (don't be fooled — it is the Diversity visa so we get more Pakistanis, Moroccans, etc)
North America 15
South America, 1,100 (Central America,
and the Caribbea)
The Truth Must be Told
