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?

I think it doesn't have a lot to do with foreign politics - according to the rules Poland received more cards in the previous years than it was supposed to receive so this year (actually next year) Poland won't participate in the lottery.

O yeah? What about all these promises that Poland's participation in Iraq will get them BENEFITS? What kind of BENEFITS did the politicians talk about? A dinner in the White House or a new Rolex watch? Or what?

Don't play that lottery. It's a trap.
If you win you'll have to live in the US!

If you're German, why u want a Green Card?

does anyone know when we gonna have the opportunity to win green card again?

Not in no near future. The illegal Poles have to return to their country first, too many illegals overcrowding the Chicago streets, that's why there won't be a lottery visa for a looong time for Poles.

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.htm

For 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.

I really believe that Poland will be participating every year. And some of you stop hating, you say that because you have a GC. If you were in our situation, I will bet you would be depressed by this time and you would give up, unlike us. Let me tell you Mr. Tornado, i hope that tornado hits you one day and you will regret your little words. If you want to judge other people, get off this conversation and maybe YOU FIND A LIFE. Love, your best friend :)

or what is even much worse, when you win, you might come across one of them two (Canada isn't far away from here) and that would be a terrible thing to go through indeed.

Merged: Last call to Poles for US Green Card lottery

Saturday evening is the deadline for Poles keen to take advantage of the so-called Green Card Lottery, in which 3500 Polish citizens will be allowed permits to live and work in the United States.
