    Did the "American" in the article call and apply? Sounds like she blah blah blah and wrote it off. Sounds like a staged article by WaPo to me. Just my opinion.

    It shouldn't have been raised at all! John Kelly, doing Trump's bidding from his position as Secretary of DHS, was actually the one that decided to raise it. The Trump administration was under no obligation or congressional mandate to raise it.

    Just more of the same. Say one thing during the campaign to get our votes but then end up going another direction based on the recommendations from his staff, cabinet appointees, and business cronies. Oh, and let's not forget to mention how convenient it was for his own family's business enterprise.

    I never heard Trump attack any of these short-term seasonal worker visas during the campaign. Trump attacked the multi-year H1B visa because Americans were being fired and replaced with H1B visa workers.

    This bill does not place American's first.

    What bill are you talking about? The H2B visa program is already law, it's been around for decades.

    According to this link, H2B visa was started in 1987.

    In-sourcing American jobs with H-2B guest workers does not put American's first!


    Excerpt:

    Americans don’t want to mow your lawn. They don’t want to serve you your lobster roll sandwich during your summer holiday in Maine. They won’t drive the trucks that bring food to the grocery store you shop in, or chop down the trees that produce the paper you use, or perform at the circus you attend every summer. You’ll also need the helping hand of a “temporary, seasonal” guestworker to help you get on the chair lift in Vail, and to learn how to ski or snowboard. Nor will Americans guard your swim club’s pool, shovel the snow in your driveway, operate the rides at the amusement park you take your kids to, tidy up the hotel room you sleep in, or process the seafood you eat. Americans can’t even be counted on to coach sports, or work construction jobs. American workers have grown soft, young people don’t want to work, and the unemployed don’t want to do much of anything strenuous these days.

    These are the kind of flawed assumptions that have led to the creation and rapid growth of the H-2B visa program, which has resulted in more half a million jobs being filled by foreign guestworkers over the last five years, rather than Americans and immigrants already in the United States.

    Despite the significant impact that the H-2B visa program has on American workers, the program receives scant media coverage compared to other guestworker categories. Issues surrounding the issuance of H-1B visas, for example, tend to receive far more media scrutiny because the beneficiaries and the victims are highly educated and often fall within the same social circles as journalists, and the topic of higher-paying skilled jobs is perceived to be more relevant to the kind of readership and viewership that advertisers desire.

    The H-2C legislation would allow companies to import hundreds of thousands of H-2C guest-workers each year, each for 18 months or 36 months. The program would start at 450,000 workers per year, and could rise 10 percent whenever food-industry recruiters reach the annual H-2C cap. Illegal immigrants now in the country could enroll in the program to gain legal status.

    Undocumented farm workers currently in the US would also be to apply for the H-2C visa, which they cannot currently do. The Department of Agriculture, rather than the Department of Labor, would oversee the program. . .
