US President Donald Trump said today that it is time to abolish the American Lottery for getting a green card.
It’s time to finish a lottery for visas. The Congress must provide an immigration system and protect the Americans – wrote Trump on his Twitter.
The famous “Lottery for Visas” has been held for years in the United States and has been a chance for many from around the world to access American green cards.
Most winners of the green card lottery last year were from Africa (20,706) and Europe (15,207), although the country with the highest number of winners was Nepal with 3,247 assigned visas, reports CNN. There followed Egypt with 2.855, Iran and Congo with 2.778 and Ethiopia with 2.143 visas.
