Do you know how many more visas are Poles allowed this year in the Green Card lottery (after Poland sent so many troops to Iraq)? Does anybody have the details?
Unfortunately no. I agree with you by the way and think green card lottery, visas, etc should be tailored to our true allies but the politicians are in a grid-lock over so many things they can't even begin to debate this issue...
Note, this is just a green card (DV) lottery; only 50 thousand people a year - 'peanuts' compared to the actual amount of immigrants who come in every year to the US. (...and I'm not even talking about the illegal immigrants from south of the border)
state.gov/r/pa/prs/ps/2009/sept/129956.htmFor DV-2011, natives of the following countries are not eligible to apply because the countries sent a total of more than 50,000 immigrants to the United States in the previous five years:
BRAZIL, CANADA, CHINA (mainland-born), COLOMBIA, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC, ECUADOR, EL SALVADOR, GUATEMALA, HAITI, INDIA, JAMAICA, MEXICO, PAKISTAN, PERU, PHILIPPINES, POLAND, SOUTH KOREA, UNITED KINGDOM (except Northern Ireland) and its dependent territories, and VIETNAM. Persons born in Hong Kong SAR, Macau SAR, and Taiwan are eligible.
