Default Is the DV Lottery 2019 cancelled?

Is the US Green Card Lottery canceled?

On November 1, 2017, President Trump called on Congress to end a green card lottery that may have led to the driver in a New York City attack getting into the country.

Speaking at a Cabinet meeting less than 24 hours after a driver killed eight and injured at least a dozen in Manhattan, Trump repeated his criticism of the Diversity Lottery Visa program from tweets earlier in the morning.

On November 1, 2017, President Trump stated that he will ask Congress to eliminate the DV Lottery, a program that enjoyed bipartisan support in the past. Critics claim that the President and supporters of ending the lottery are taking advantage of a tragedy. President Trump cannot cancel the 2019 DV Lottery by himself. Canceling the program would be a long, highly debated process.

Default Re: Is the DV Lottery 2019 cancelled?

This years (2018) Green Card Lottery Program is called DV-2020 (the year successful applicants may enter the United States of America on the green card they won), and is now open to all individuals worldwide who meet two basic entry requirements. The Program makes Permanent Resident Cards available to the winners, authorizing the winners and their families to live, study and work in the United States of America as permanent residents.
