Green Card Lottery

Green Card Lottery

Every year in the United States the government hands out fifty-five thousand green cards through its Green Card Lottery drawing. Like a true lottery, eligible participants are selected randomly and by chance. Once the eligible participant is chosen then it is time to celebrate! Since the applicant, their husband or wife and children (under twenty-one and unmarried) are then given a green card. Once you receive a US Green Card you now have permanent resident status and can live in the United States as long as you wish.

Many of you might be wondering if this is really true and why would the governemt allow such a thing. However, the Green Card Lottery program is sanctioned by Congress and by the Diversity Visa agenda.

Registration is free and can be done online at the official USAGC Organization website.

Hi INKcredible, great hub. Many Americans don’t understand why our Congress would allow this, considering we have such a large unemployment in the United States. One thing people don’t realize is that corporations still have difficulties filling high skilled jobs, even in this economy. To be honest, I rather bring in high skilled workers through H-1B who will pay taxes and make contributions to our society in positive ways, than to outsource our jobs.

Sorry if I went off topic a bit with H-1B, and skilled workers. I hope it is related somehow, and the Green Card Lottery is to bring in skilled people who would be productive members of our society. Do you know if anyone is accepted, or do immigrants still have to go through interviews and qualifying process?
