NumbersUSA is today calling on everyone who wants to halt the colonization of America to ask their Representatives in Congress to support HR 2305, a bill that seeks to kill an outdated and frankly dangerous immigration program known as the diversity visa which I told you about here late last year.
Congress and the Administration still plan to take 50,000 U.S. jobs later this year and raffle them off to foreign workers on pure chance. Never mind that 14 million unemployed Americans are looking for a job. If that doesn’t make any sense to you, get passionate about Rep. Bob Goodlatte’s SAFE for America Act (H.R. 2305). Let’s kill this absurd lottery before autumn.
OK, the Visa Lottery doesn’t actually raffle off jobs. But it does raffle off U.S. citizenship — without any regard to a person’s education, skills, character, family relation, humanitarian need or the impact on American workers, taxes and quality of life.
The fact is that every year the federal government raffles off greencards (and path to U.S. citizenship) to 50,000 of the millions who play the lottery.
Nearly all of those 50,000 will immediately seek a job.
Those 50,000 foreign lottery winners will either take a job from an American, or fail to find a job and become a total net consumer of taxpayer benefits and infrastructure.
The fax campaign is underway:
See if your Representative is a co-sponsor and if so, be sure to thank him or her.

By the way, I always thought the Diversity Visa Lottery winners were pretty much on their own when they arrived, but this article from Shelbyville, TN in February indicates that Egyptian Lottery winners are getting some help with job searches and seem to be in direct competition with refugees (and Americans!) for meat packing jobs.
