Posted on 10/18/2011 8:21:55 AM PDT by opentalk
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.

That seems high, what was the total amount handed out each year?
Tell them to go ahead and cross the Mexican border just like everybody else.
Wonder how many cells Iran has here?
More recruits for “Obama’s Army”.
The standards themselves are pretty low: a high school education OR employment in two out of the last five years. The high school education can be by third world standards which, admittedly, might be just as good as some places in the USA. The work experience can include anything from rag picking in Timbuktu to prison guard in Tehran.
The most stupid of all is that all eligible entrants are thrown into a single pot for random drawing. So, naturally, the overwhelming number of entrants are marginal candidates from eligible third world countries.
More DNC "gifts" against America which
should not be forgotten.
Would that be 4453 muzzies??
I’m sure the Iranian gov. will be happy to choose the folks to fill these spots, complete with documents and books on “How to construct a bomb”.
Iran is proud of the fact that their Al Quds force consists exclusively of soldiers who required at least two years of training before rising to their job destabilizing the West and our allies. I wonder if State is subsidizing their travel costs to get here too.
I’m sure they’re all Zoroastrians...
Some of those Iranians will no doubt be thanking God for their deliverance from the prison state of Iran, but mixed in among them will be terrorists who can’t wait to get to the U.S. and start planning attacks on us.
The State Department’s loyalty to the U.S. is high questionable in my judgment. They’ve long perceived that their job is to explain other nations to the U.S., rather than explain the U.S. to other nations.
Throw in the Baha’i, Christians, and the 4 remaining Jews, and I’d be OK with that.
This is simply insane. The "State Sponsors of Terror," will make sure the people they allow to come "meet" our requirements, but you can be sure they are sleeper cell types and to consider anything else is not only wrecklessly blind, it borders on treason IMHO.
For the record, individuals submit the applications, not the governments and the winners are chosen at random. However, when you accept applications from countries filled with anti-American zealots, it should be no surprise when most of the winners are also anti-American zealots.
Tag ‘em and track ‘em
We should be so lucky to get no muzzies. However, I’m sure they’ll make up 98% of the visas.
George Schultz, Reagan's Secretary of State, was one of the few exceptions to this rule.
New recruits were asked to report to the chief for a brief exchange before they reported to their first foreign posting. Schultz had a globe on his desk and asked them to point to the country which they would be representing. Inevitably, the new recruit would point to their assigned post.
Schultz would rise from his desk, stick his finger on the United States and shout "No! Dammit! That is where you will be posted! This is the country you will be representing! Don't you ever forget it!"
last year, ..the State Department awarded 2,427 Diversity Visas to people from Iran, Syria and Sudan 1,842 for Iran; 553 for Sudan; and 32 for Syria
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.
Hard as it is to believe, my town does not have one Muslim Lesbian. Not a damned 1! How the hell are we supposed to compete in sophisticated international markets? There was a place that had an espresso machine, but until we have a gay Muslim outreach program, we will never be another Seattle.
Perhaps Stimulus Funds could be used to get a circuit-riding Muslim Lesbian who could cover several towns trying to survive these harsh economic times. Hell, we would even settle for an Asian Transgendered person. (We do have a cross-dresser, thank you.)
Believe it or not, I’ve NEVER seen that movie.
“Young Frankenstein”, yes...”Blazing Saddles”, no.
How did you get into FR? Don’t you know to become a Freeper you first have to pass the Blazing Saddles Trivia Test?
“..Schultz would rise from his desk, stick his finger on the United States and shout “No! Dammit! That is where you will be posted! This is the country you will be representing! Don’t you ever forget it!”...”
Ahh, for the good old days, when AMERICANS ran things around here...instead of the POS we have now.
I was thinking the same thing. The message that make sense is 0.
“...How did you get into FR? ...”
I snuck over the southern border, following a pack of crazed dwarf albanian haberdashers...and believe me, it was NO picnic...
Still picking cactus needles outta my Byootoks...and polyester leisure suits do NOT reflect the heat very well, lemme tell ya...
In short, they are progressive marxist ideologs whose "fundamental change" of America means destroying it and the way of life as we and our fathers and forefathers have known it.
in 2012 we have perhaps the best opportunity in decades to significantly turn it back and set it on its proper and intended course. I pray God in Heave that we do not let the opportunity pass, or be taken from us by the scheming and manipulations of those we are fighting against.
ha ha; you think Scots or Northern Europeans want to come here?
