DHS Approves 15000 Added Temporary Worker Visas

DHS Approves 15000 Added Temporary Worker Visas”

This may seem out of line with USA president Donald Trump's "Hire American" initiative, and his efforts to reduce or delay visas for skilled foreign workers.

US business will be able to hire an additional 15,000 foreign workers under the H-2B visa program through the end of September, the Department of Homeland Security announced Monday.

In order to hire foreign workers through the non-immigrant visa program, businesses must show there are not enough US workers "able, willing, qualified, and available" for the jobs.

Businesses have been vocal in demanding an expansion of the H-2B program, saying there are not enough American workers to fill the temporary jobs they need to operate. Congress gave the DHS the power to authorize more visas if needed.

"As a demonstration of the administration's commitment to supporting American businesses, DHS is providing this one-time increase to the congressionally set annual cap", Kelly said in a statement.

Kelly, who in May said he planned to grant additional visas, received approval from congress to authorise additional visas.

While he was still serving in the Senate, Attorney General Jeff Sessions previous year sent a letter to the Senate Appropriations Committee asking them not to dramatically increase the number of H-2B visas as the House had done in a temporary spending bill.

Trump acknowledged as much at a July 12 press availability held aboard Air Force One on the way to France to celebrate Bastille Day.

The Trump administration promotes what it calls a "Hire American" policy and the president has repeatedly called for more limited immigration.

"Though we fear this gesture may be too little too late for thousands of small businesses ... the additional visas may help save some small businesses this year". The cap was met on March 13 this year.

"It's not that Americans don't want work, it's that Americans don't want these jobs because they're back-breaking hard work", Bishop said.

"This is yet another example of the administration and congress failing to keep the Trump campaign promise of putting American workers first", he told The Washington Post.

While President Trump has expressed his opposition to guest worker programs, he has made an exception for the H2B visa - one his Mar-a-Lago resort regularly applies for in order to supplement its staff.

Trump said he has relied on the program in the past to find workers for his golf courses and hotels. "This does help with American businesses continuing to prosper".
