Green card lottery error crushes applicants’ hopes

Posted on May 20th, 2011 No Comments

The Diversity Visa Lottery gives away 50,000 green cards each year. The requirements are simple and straightforward; be from an underrepresented country other than the United States, fill out an application and be selected randomly.

The hard part is defying the odds stacked against you to obtain one of the coveted green cards. Nearly 10 million people apply for this lottery each year in hopes of being able to stay in the United States. On May 1st of this year, a glitch in the program occurred and too many people received a supposed green card from the lottery. People were overjoyed until the State Department released an announcement about their mistake.

According to the State Department, a programming miscalculation distributed an overload of green cards in this year’s lottery. As a result, numerous applicants were crushed with the news when they received notification that their green card had to be withdrawn because of this error.
