    DHS to Make an Extra 22,000 Seasonal Visas Available by Summer

    DHS to Make an Extra 22,000 Seasonal Visas Available by Summer

    Tue, APR 20th 2021 @ 2:29 pm EDT

    The Biden administration is expected to make an additional 22,000 seasonal guest worker visas available to foreign nationals before this summer.

    The decision will have dramatic consequences in both the short and long term, acting as an additional threat against the containment of the coronavirus, and cementing the President’s lack of commitment to Americans and already-present immigrants currently struggling in the job market, especially given a U6 unemployment rate nearing 11%.

    The 22,000 seasonal workers will be in addition to the 66,000 visas that are already allotted each year for temporary foreign workers during busier seasons.

    According to the Wall Street Journal, most of the 22,000 additional visas will be earmarked for applicants from El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras, where a vast majority of families and migrants surging the southern border travel from.

    Under the plan, illegal alien workers already in the United States will immediately be employed and will not have to wait for the usual approval process.

    DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said in a statement:

    The H-2B program is designed to help U.S. employers fill temporary seasonal jobs, while safeguarding the livelihoods of American workers. This supplemental increase also demonstrates DHS’s commitment to expanding lawful pathways for opportunity in the United States to individuals from the Northern Triangle.

    Just weeks ago Biden rescinded a job-saving ban on the H-2A visa program and other visa programs which made jobs more available to American workers and already present immigrants.

    Congress has given the Department of Homeland Security the ability to issue an additional 64,000 visas on top of the 66,0000 made available each year, meaning Secretary Mayorkas could add up to 42,000 more visas this year.
