Senator Kerry's wife is also in the spotlight -- but it's not a good light.

Goodlatte says the *Diversity Immigrant Visa Lottery* is flawed and is a threat to national security, because it can unknowingly grant visas to potential criminals.
But supporters of the lottery say it provides a long-shot hope for reuniting families who are frustrated by complicated and rigid immigration laws.
