US sued by 22,000 would-be immigrants

US sued by 22,000 would-be immigrants...A lawsuit has been filed against the State Department alleging it unfairly denied 22,000 would-be legal immigrants the right to permanent residency in the U.S. White and Associates said it filed the lawsuit in the District Court for the District of Colombia charging the State Department committed a "blunder" in holding a lottery granting them the permanent resident "green card." In a statement, the firm alleged that the State Department had informed the lottery "winners" that in fact they had to be disqualified because a "computer glitch" meant they had not been randomly selected, as required by Congress...These are Belgium, Bulgaria, Cameroon, Canada, Egypt, Ethiopia, France, Iran, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Morocco, Nepal, Nigeria, Russia, South Africa, Spain, Sudan, Turkey, Uganda, Uzbekistan and Yemen.
