NEW Poll: 60 Percent of Likely Voters Want to End ‘Visa Lottery’

AP/Lai Seng Sin
Roughly three in five likely American voters say the Diversity Visa Lottery program that imports 50,000 random foreign nationals every year to the United States should end.
Under the Visa Lottery program, championed by former Sen. Ted Kennedy and Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), the U.S. randomly gives out 50,000 visas every year to foreign nationals from a multitude of countries, including those with known terrorism problems – such as Afghanistan, Algeria, Egypt, Iraq, Lebanon, Libya, Nigeria, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Trinidad and Tobago, Venezuela, Yemen, and Uzbekistan. Winners have undergone only minor screening from immigration officials, even when their ideology is hostile to American laws and culture.
A new poll by Pulse Opinion Research shows overwhelming support among Americans for eliminating the Visa Lottery, with 60 percent saying the program should be ended. Less than 30 percent of likely voters said the Visa Lottery should remain in place. Another 11 percent said they were “not sure.”
