Call me NostraDebmus . . . or is that, NostraDebbie?
Either way, I predicted that 22,000 mostly Muslim diversity visa lottery entrants would sue the State Department after a computer “glitch” that “accidentally” awarded them green cards for no reason, and they received letters revoking the notices granting them green cards. And, last week, just as I predicted, they filed suit, which they have a good chance of winning. I also predicted that if they sue and win, it could open the door for all 15 million applicants to the diversity visa lottery held by the State Department via computer random drawing. There is absolutely NO reason we have this diversity visa lottery. It only rewards people–mostly Muslims–from countries that hate us, with carte blanche, red carpet entry onto our shores and a permanent stay thereafter.
Lawsuit Over “Glitch” Could Mean Green Cards for 22,000-15 Million of America’s Enemies
Get ready to bend over for tens of thousands, possibly tens of millions, of new, mostly Muslim ANOs (Americans in Name Only) (pronounced, “Anus”). Kenneth White is the ANOL–Americans in Name Only Lawyer. Thank Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and their America-hating State Department incompetents for screwing this up and creating a ripe opportunity for scumbags to take advantage. G-d knows, our borders aren’t wide open enough.
More about this suit. Told ya so, and sadly, I was right. Only in America:
A lawsuit has been filed against the State Department in federal court seeking to reinstate thousands of potential green-card winners whose chance of obtaining U.S. residency was scuttled because of a government computer error.
A record 15 million people from around the world submitted entries to the so-called diversity visa program lottery, which each year offers a quick path to a green card for 50,000 people selected by random draw.
In early May, the State Department notified 22,000 people they were chosen. But soon after, it informed them the electronic draw would have to be held again because a computer glitch caused 90% of the winners to be selected from the first two days of applications instead of the entire 30-day registration period. The government told affected individuals they would be re-entered in a new draw.
The lawsuit, filed Friday in U.S. District Court in Washington, seeks class-action status and names plaintiffs from more than 20 countries. The suit asks that the U.S. government restore its “broken commitment,” stating that chosen individuals had “lawfully and properly” followed rules set forth by the State Department and thought they were among the “lucky few” selected to proceed with the green-card application.
David Donahue, a deputy assistant secretary of state who oversees the program, said the original draw was voided because it “did not represent a fair, random selection of entrants as required by U.S. law,” according to a State Department website.
The lawsuit contends the “outcome was indeed not uniform, but nevertheless still random as required by law.”
Under the program, visas are made available to applicants from countries with low rates of immigration to the U.S. Winners have a shot at settling in the U.S. without a family member or employer as a sponsor, the usual routes to obtaining permanent residency.
Disenchanted applicants from across the globe created a Facebook page dubbed “22,000 Tears” and began collecting signatures for letters to the State Department and U.S. lawmakers in protest. In an email to a reporter, an applicant from Egypt threatened to kill himself if he wasn’t reinstated.
Huh? Only 22,000 tears? Cry me a river. I guarantee you the many American victims of aliens–specifically the largely third-world, mostly Muslim aliens–who eventually come here, take their jobs, honor kill people, etc. have shed far more than 22,000 tears.
The State Department’s inspector general said earlier this month a team would be assembled to review the situation. A spokesman said Monday the review should be finished within weeks.
Los Angeles attorney Kenneth White, who is representing the individuals in the suit pro-bono, said “the basis of this case is deep-rooted in the simple and enduring American value that ‘our word is our bond.”‘ . . .
Launched in 1990 to promote diversity in the immigrant population, the green-card lottery is now open to people from almost anywhere in the world, except countries that already have a large number of nationals in the U.S., including Mexico, China, India and the Philippines. No special skills are required beyond a high-school diploma. Lottery winners eventually qualify for U.S. citizenship. . . .
Critics say the program poses security risks, lures uneducated immigrants and enables individuals with no connection to the U.S. to get into the country more quickly than those sponsored by relatives and employers. Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R., Va.) has introduced legislation to abolish it.
Good for Goodlatte. Now where are the other Republicans who control the House? Why aren’t they moving this forward for a vote while the iron is hot?
Oh, yeah, because they are frauds who really couldn’t care less about securing our borders and ending entitlements to these new “Americans” In Name Only (AINOs).
Anyway, bend over, ‘cuz this lawsuit will probably not end well . . . for Americans.
And, FYI, the lawyer is no dummy. For PR purposes, he filed the suit seeking class action status on behalf of Armande Gil, a French neuropsychologist. But most of the people who applied for and received the false confirmation that they’d get green cards are unskilled Muslims without so much as a high school degree in the Third World, as I showed in the graph above, when I first wrote about this.
Immigration lawsuits are all about smoke and mirrors. And so are lawyers, especially immigration lawyers. But you knew that.
