New England Patriot won the visa lottery

November 22, 2010 § Leave a comment

Zoltan Mesko, punter with the New England Patriots, came to the U.S. from Romania thanks to the program, after his family won a spot in the lottery when he was a child. Hundreds of winners have gone on to enlist in the U.S. armed forces.   And this year, a record 15 million people around the world this year entered America’s green-card lottery, an immigration program that offers a quick path to legal, permanent U.S. residence for 50,000 people a year—selected purely by the luck of the draw.  The so-called “diversity visa program” lottery drew nearly 25% more entries than last year, according to the State Department. The limit of 50,000 green-card recipients through the program was established years ago by Congress.  (WSJ)
