Trump tweeted, “Time to end the visa lottery. Congress must secure the immigration system and protect Americans.”

Trump linked his message to a Justice Department press release regarding a complaint to revoke the resident status of a visa lottery program recipient who funded global terrorist activities.

This decision would benefit Indians who work on a variety of visas in different parts of the US. Many of them are in Washington demanding a Trump and Congress to change the immigration policies over the past week. The White House has announced that the new immigration policy will prevent damage to US economy. Trump also responded by Twitter. It’s time to cancel the lottery process.
