Congratulations, you're now an American... er, sorry, we made a mistake
Roughly 22,000 would-be immigrants to the U.S. have had their hopes shattered.
That's because a computer glitch corrupted the State Department's annual worldwide lottery for 50,000 U.S. immigrant visas and the results will be scratched, the Obama administration revealed today.
It's a devastating blow to 22,000 would-be immigrants who were notified this year that they had won a chance to come and live legally in the United States.
