Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

President Donald Trump said Wednesday that he would end the popular US green card lottery after a radicalized Uzbek man who entered the country under the program killed eight people in New York. "I am starting the process of terminating the diversity lottery program," Trump 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 1990 program 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.

"USA depends on immigration when it comes to science and engineering....for employers who don't want to pay American wages."

I have mixed feelings on this.

I don't quite think a lottery is the best way to do this.

Id assign a case worker, but that costs money, so it's a non-starter.

It's pretty easy to disappear in America. And get "socialized" on the Internet. Social isolation is a common thread among many of our "crazy outburst" killers.

But we can't even get Russian political propaganda off the Internet, so good luck stopping teenage Muslim immigrant boys looking at those naughty ISIS websites!

..for employers who don't want to pay American wages.

Usual BS from the DR's in-house BS artist.

Microsoft's CEO and Google's CEO (both of whom are from India) are paid less than the other's who came before them?

Really?

Your lies get wilder as you get older.

If you knew anything you would be d danger to everyone. Scientists and engineers don't come in on a lottery system.

They come on the H1B visa, Illiterate. I was talking of immigration in general.

I said, he is going to start with the lottery visa and then move on to finish off immigration in other categories. It's what he wants to do. Stop ALL immigration.

There is as much evidence of that as there is that 'common sense gun control legislation' will lead to banning and confiscation of firearms.

Is that clear enough ------? - J_Tremain at 2017-11-03 12:22 PM

immigrants who came here on merrit based visas hate the lottery system.

The primary difference between an Indian engineer and a native engineer is about 30 thousand. Actually most of what the country needs is competent engineers. My brother gets the plans from makes dies and sees if their plans actually work. In his case he proved a hygrostatic delivery of vaccines- no needle. Sort of important in developing countries reducing the cost of the delivery of vaccines by about 50%. The needles cost more than the vaccines in many cases. One of the great strengths we have is the ability build anything quickly. There is a process. A concept, which requires a PHD, a design, which requires a masters, a tool and die maker, which requires years of skill and serious knowledge acquired by years of experience to make the tech available to use. Of course I didn't say anything about the sales and marketing that pay for the process. That is the primary advantage over a centrally planed economy. Central planed economies have no imagination. My brother in about six months probity saved more people doing his job for about 8000 a month than any of you ever will.

all immigrants should at the very least have to earn those way here. And if down the road they screw up, send them back. And no immigrant should ever be eligible for social services.
