Visa lotteries should be abolished. It frees adjudication officers and consular personnel from being over burdened and it provides room for 50,000 extra visas. It was originally sponsored by Sen. Kennedy ( D - MA) and he made sure that Ireland had 50% of the winners in the first year. All that is gone following new regulations (one per applicant,etc.) A bill is before the House to abandon this ridiculous lottery. It is degrading. Send your letters to Rep. Goodlatte (R - VA). He supported the House Bill to abandon the visa lottery. It wastes adjudicator and consular officer's time. It releases 50,000 visas. It is degrading. A lottery to allow permanent residency into the US. I-485's are waiting for 2 years for employment based petitions. E-mail your congressional representatives.
