Donald Trump to cancel US Green card Lottery

President Donald Trump said Wednesday that he would end the popular US
green card lottery as police said a radicalised Uzbek man staged the
deadly truck ramming in New York after entering the country under the
programme.

The move could spell the end to the US immigration hopes of millions of
people around the world who have tried to win US residence permits
through the program since it was created 27 years ago.

“I am starting the process of terminating the diversity lottery program,” Trump angrily told reporters.
“We have to do what’s right to protect our citizens,” he said. “We will get rid of this lottery program as soon as possible.”

The programme awards US permanent resident visas to around 50,000
applicants from around the world each year, opening the door as well for
members of their broader families to follow them, so-called chain
migration.
