S.1632: Visa Lottery Repeal Act


The Visa Lottery Repeal Act would end the diversity visa program. The diversity visa (DV) program, today, 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.

Talking Points

  • The National Assembly opposes this bill because the diversity visa program makes our society more diverse, enriching social, cultural, and civic life as well as boosting the economy.
