The State Department has awarded 4,453 permanent resident "Diversity Visa" applications to would-be immigrants from Iran, a state sponsor of terrorism that was recently implicated in a plot to assassinate the Saudi Arabian ambassador to the United States.
The lottery program for Diversity Visas awards prospective immigrants with the chance to obtain a permanent residency visa. The 4,453 prospective Iranian immigrants will still have to pursue their visa applications on their own, according to the State Departments website.
To be eligible, applicants must have at least a high school education or two years of work within the previous five years at a job that requires at least two years of training.
Irans intelligence services have been implicated in a plot to assassinate the Saudi ambassador to the United States by bombing a restaurant or public place in Washington, D.C.

how many scots were awarded such visas?
how many northern Europeans?
Again, I compare our immigration system to the Australian model...and we come up glaringly and completely short.
This is a very dangerous program that needed to be ended yesterday.
All of the talk of what to do with Mexican illegals seems suddenly foolish when you stop to realize that we are granting LEGAL status to tens of thousands of immigrants from Islamic terror hellholes each and every year.
[ Throw in the Bahai, Christians, and the 4 remaining Jews, and Id be OK with that. ]
I would be all for that too, bring over all the “infidels” from the ROPer countries in the middle east.
I worked with someone who was a Christian Iraqi, (She moved over here in the late 80’s) she was a very gentle and kind soul.
[ Im sure theyre all Zoroastrians... ]
After what the ROP has done to the Zoroastrians I will never forgive the ROP for that.
I assume that means radical Iranian Muslims, since, we have enough moderate Iranian Muslims.
That picture will make a nice target for the range, blown up to proportional size.
I’d rather have 4453 more Irishmen than one more muslim, quite frankly.
--For 2012, the State Department, along with registrations from people in other countries, selected 4,453 applicants from Iran; 292 from Cuba; 757 from Sudan; and 160 from Syria. (Total: 5,662.)---
The State Department, has pushed gay pride activities in our embassies, Bought and push the 911 ground zero Imams book, complained about civil rights issues in AZ while in China... Their priorities are very anti-traditional American. (IMO)
I’d rather have 4453 more Irishmen come over here than one more muslim, quite frankly.
Probably none. The visa lottery is only for "under-represented groups".
"We'll give some land to the n----s and the chi--s.....BUT WE DON'T WANT THE IRISH!"
?!?!?What is THAT from??!?!?
That gets me Irish blood fired up...
Is that really a true story about Schultz?
duhbummer is building his army in front of our faces..
The ROP has done nothing of any good for anyone.
Obama sendind the signal that America roll over and play dead.
I was personally acquainted with few of them when I worked in Japan and my former company was called on to assist American companies in selling into Japan.
I'm not so sure if this is still the case, but back then I was told that the U.S. Embassy in Tokyo was second only to Saudi Arabia in the number of staff.
