Diversity-Visa Lottery Is a Jackpot for Immigrants from Terror States

Washington rolls the dice on public safety.
Fly in from any of 13 nations that Uncle Sam watches for possible terrorist arrivals, and TSA agents will subject you to extra scrutiny. Apply for a visa from any of these countries, and you could win the lottery, waltz into America, and wave your new green card at your new neighbors.
This folly is known as the Diversity Visa Lottery Program. It became notorious last week as the route by which alleged bike-path terrorist Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov entered the U.S. in 2010. Saipov, 29, is just the point of this potential dagger.
Last fiscal year alone, Washington’s breathless quest for diversity admitted to America 7,224 individuals from this baker’s dozen of terrorist-infected nations. (Saipov’s native Uzbekistan is not among these countries of concern.) From the start of FY 2007 through FY 2016, such visa-lottery admissions totaled 65,144.
The State Department officially designates only Iran, Sudan, and Syria as “State Sponsors of Terrorism.” Regardless, under this diversity scheme, 2,788 Iranians, 1,833 Sudanese, and 164 Syrians won the lottery, scored green cards, and came to America in FY 2016. From FY 2007 to FY 2016, this program brought into our borders 20,739 Iranians, 7,232 Sudanese, and 812 Syrians.
