Trump Administration To Add 15,000 Work Visas For Workers Outside The U.S.


Just in time for Donald Trump's "Made In America" week, the Trump administration has announced an increase of 15,000 work visas for workers from outside the U.S.

From the Chicago Tribune:

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 the 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.

The visas are for workers taking seasonal jobs in the seafood, tourism and other industries -- but not farm laborers.

Trumpers - you got played. President Babyhands promised you all jobs and now he's allowing 15,000 more immigrants to come into the country for jobs.

And on top of that, Trump's "Made In America" week also gets the "Irony Award" since the vast majority of Trump products are made outside the U.S.A. Watch the report below.
