More fraud in Diversity Visa Lottery as feds move to strip citizenship from four Somalis

The Justice Department moved Monday to strip citizenship from four Somali immigrants who prosecutors say lied about being a family, and managed to defraud the Diversity Visa Lottery program that Republicans are aiming to nix.

The government says one woman, Fosia Abdi Adan, won the lottery in 2000 and then brought in two other people as her husband and children, using a fake marriage certificate.

The prosecutions come a week after the Diversity Lottery was in the news as the immigration program used by the suspect in last week’s terrorist truck attack in New York City.

    OT but a story implortant enough to follow. Maybe explains whey gold jumped today and oil is up over 56 for the first time in a long time.

      Will Iran be providing Hezbollah with the same ballistic missiles as they have sent to the Houthi rebels in Yemen?

        They keep trying. That’s why Israel sometimes send their fighter jets into Syria, to blow up these weapons.

        Maybe. I suspect the missile brought down over Ryhad (sp?) recently was a Scud. They are cheap and plentiful, I’m sure they could get their hands on a few.

    They can strip them of US citizenship but there’s no way they’re going to repatriate them to Somalia with the current judiciary.

      They’ll probably drop them off at our border.

      Hey, it will never come to that. They will take taxis to the Canadian border where they will be welcomed and even likely have the RCMP act as their personal porters.
