State Department’s Diversity Immigrant Visa Program insures a continuing supply of vibrant enrichment

By Dr. Patrick Slattery — Hey gang, did you know that our State Department actually encourages immigration from the very populations who have the least connection to the people of the United States? That’s right. It is called the Diversity Immigrant Visa (DV) Program. Because our population isn’t diverse enough yet. The following comes straight from the State Department website:

Section 203(c) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) provides for a class of immigrants known as “diversity immigrants,” from countries with historically low rates of immigration to the United States. A limited number of visas are available each fiscal year. The DVs are distributed among six geographic regions and no single country may receive more than seven percent of the available DVs in any one year.

For a list of countries/areas by region whose natives are eligible for DV-2018 and DV-2017, please refer to the DV Instructions.

The requirements for the DV program are established by U.S. immigration law. If you are planning to register for the DV program, be sure to look closely at the requirements for this type of visa.

Note:  There is no cost to register for the DV Program.

Wow. And its free, too. So, if you know a Bushman from Botswana or a Pygmy from Burundi, please let them know, because we are definitely underpopulated by Bushmen and Pygmies.

At first I was worried that Australia would not be on the diversity list because, well, it has too many non-diverse people. But I was wrong. So our American multi-culture can be strengthened by the vibrancy of Aborigines. Imagine how enriched you will feel when our television broadcasts public service announcements informing Aborigines not to sleep in the road.

Here is another one, clearly sponsored by the Aussie government:

Thanks, State Department!
