Pinoy Panawagan: the diversity visa lottery and its impact
Attorney Lou Tancinco joins us on BA to talk about President Trump’s plans to eliminate the diversity visa lottery, a program he blamed for allowing the New York City’s Halloween terror attacker in the US.
Conservative lawmakers have proposed eliminating the diversity visa lottery – in a bill that slashes legal immigration in half within a decade by limiting the ability of American citizens and legal residents to bring family members into the country.
What are the chances that this bill would get passed — and just how big of an impact would this have on immigrant families, including Filipinos?
While all of these developments are happening, would you advise immigrant families to petition their family members — if they already can — before legal immigration is further restricted in this country?
