My December 18 op-ed on Trump’s claims that the diversity visa program lets in the worst was quoted in a CBS News article on January 10. Trump has gone on to say that foreign countries are contributing to the lottery the “people they don’t want”.
“There is no way a foreign government can game the lottery to offload the worst of their citizenry,” Yale-Loehr writes. “Applicants who commit fraud, say by applying more than once each year to increase their chances of winning, are barred from the program. The State Department has issued specific warnings against fraud in the diversity visa program. So even if a government tried to game the lottery, it should be caught.”
