I have been documenting the increase of outrageous and dangerous "diversity" and "religious" visas. Back in June 2009: DIVERSITY VISA NUMBERS: IMPORTING JIHAD IN THE TENS OF THOUSANDS and April 2009: "Diversity Visas" and "Religious Visas": Importing Jihad, I reported the advancement of this importation of jihad.
Below I show the employment, diversity, all types of immigrant visas for January 2010. Nigeria and Egypt (Gaza) are among the largest ones.
Obama wasted no time in opening up the visa regulations when he took office last year, beginning with "religious visas." Before, whoever wanted to enter as a supposed 'missionary' needed to demonstrate his/her affiliation with a religious institution for at least two years. Obama changed it to almost no proof at all.
"Missionary" Christians come and go, and priests, pastors, nuns, ministers have used this visa, but their number is so low that it is insignificant. The Jews also use this type of visa, but it is the same as the Christians. The numbers are low, and, as with the Christians, generally those folks use a tourist visa.
It is predominately Muslims who use the "religious visa". And that number is quite high. Many countries such as Pakistan or territories such as Palestine use this type of visa, because it has been harder for them to get a regular visa (though that is no longer true for the Palestinians). But because most Muslims can't really provide or do not want to provide the information of a specific mosque they've attended or they've "preached" at, they complained -- and now DOS has granted their wish of waiving the 2-year proof requirement.
Bottom line, this yet another type of visa they are using, and this change helps them enormously.
Another type of visa that is dangerous and is an IV (Immigrant Visa), is what is called a "Diversity" visa -- a class of immigrants known as “diversity immigrants.” Diversity Visas (DV) each fiscal year are made available to persons from countries with low rates of immigration to the United States. The annual DV program makes visas available to persons meeting the simple eligibility requirements. A computer-generated, random lottery drawing chooses selectees for diversity visas. The visas are distributed among six geographic regions, with a greater number of visas going to regions with lower rates of immigration.
Just to give you an idea of the impact of these changes on regions rife with jihad, look at the numbers.
And don't be fooled by Europe's number -- diversity means we are importing Europe's Pakistanis, Moroccans, Algerians, etc., and we know how well they have integrated into those societies.
New numbers show a dramatic increase. And remember Egypt includes Gaza and Ethiopia includes Somalis ...that's how they hide those numbers.
