Trump Lets in 15,000 Workers to Take American Jobs

The Department of Homeland Security on Monday announced a one-time increase of 15,000 additional visas for low-wage seasonal workers for the remainder of this fiscal year, a seeming about-face from President Trump's "Hire American" rhetoric, following heavy lobbying from fisheries, hospitality and other industries that rely on temporary foreign workers.

The increase represents a 45 percent bump from the number of H-2B visas normally issued for the second half of the fiscal year, said senior Homeland Security officials in a call with reporters Monday.

Sad

I have no problem with temporary, legal immigrants who do not overstay their welcome! The Media and the rest of the Left Wing want this to not be about legal versus illegal; they'd rather have it be about their Lie that protecting our borders against illegal immigration and visa overstays is somehow Racist!

I do have a problem with companies importing workers to bump American workers such as happens with H1-B visas and high tech jobs!

By the way, when welfare reform is addressed as it was during the last term of the Clinton Administration (Republican Contract for America) then we may need fewer unskilled laborers to process our crops!  (Obama abolished workfare and changed the definition of work to include looking for a job on your free Obamaphone!_)

While I am not opposed to temporary work visas necessarily, they do tend to drag wages down for US workers.  If we're bringing in a labor pool to work agriculture jobs, that's a pile of work that US workers can't compete with.  Wages too low.

Rome wasn't built in a day.  Our immigration policy was broken long before Obama (although he doubled down on stupid and made things much worse, as he did with almost everything he touched).  It may take awhile to address all of our issues, including our Dept. of Labor and the State Department working together to determine what industries might need additional imported labor without taking jobs from Americans.  I believe it may be true that there are some jobs in some locations which need more labor than is readily available (such as pickers at harvest time).  However, we ought to make America's interests come first; not that laborers form Mexico or anywhere else can make more north of the border than they can in their own county.

Aren't they going to do the jobs Americans won't due? That's usual liberal spin.
