Seeking Diversity

About 22 percent of immigrants came to the U.S. through the diversity visa lottery program, according to the Population Reference Bureau (PRB). The program aims to attract immigrants from countries that are underrepresented among the U.S. foreign-born population. It provides some 55,000 visas each year.
