 Trump abolishes Green Card programme which permits foreigners to reside in America


Trump abolishes Green Card programme which permits foreigners to reside in America

America's President yesterday (2) decided to abolish the 'Green Card' lottery programme which paved the way from a long time for citizens of other countries including Sri Lanka to migrate to America and secure permanent residentship. He has commented
on Twitter stating that he has launched this move.

Trump has from the inception of his Presidential propaganda campaign had an inclination to bring forward this decision and the closest reason which provoked this last decision after it was revealed that it was the terrorist attack that was launched last 31st in New York targetting motor cyclists and pedestrians by a person who had entered the country through the green card, foreign news say. This attack was launched by 29 year old Posfulo Saipochi, a migrant from Uzbekistan and having connections with ISIS who incidentally had come into occupation in America. The President has mentioned in the Twitter message that a number of lives were lost as a consequence of an act of a terrorist who came to America in an irregular manner across the lottery method and that America need not regard this as because of this programme and that in future an opportunity would be provided for foreigners to reside in America by launching migration programmes based on skills.

'Green card' was a programme which provided an opportunity for foreigners to reside legally in America. A large number of Sri Lankans too have migrated to America through this lottery and have secured permanent residentship. Citizens who have claimed residentship upto now across the green card lottery system would face no issue. However, no new applicants would be permitted across the green card method. The President's decision will be subjected to approval of the Congress and effected in a few more days' time.
