Trump Administration Adds More Foreign Guest 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. The announcement Monday indicates Trump is willing to acquiesce to employers on the issue.

Temporary workers at seasonal resorts as well as in landscaping, seafood harvesting and processing are among those eligible, the government said. After appeals from employers in their home districts, representatives in Washington have been haranguing the administration to act.

The Trump Administration says it has a problem with visa overstays in the country and is now determined to step up enforcement to try to cut down on the violations.

Some 66,000 "H-2B" visas were allocated for this summer, and resorts from ME to Florida along the United States east coast have complained they don´t have enough.

FY2020 EPS Estimates for Astrazeneca PLC Lowered by Analyst (NYSE:AZN)
Large investors have recently bought and sold shares of the stock. 23 funds opened positions while 45 raised stakes. Eventually, AstraZeneca PLC Drug Manufacturers - Major exhibits an EPS value of 7.30% for the next five years.


"The fact that more than 700,000 visits were overstayed previous year shows just how much we need to step up interior enforcement to create more of a deterrent, not only by identifying and deporting overstays, but by weakening the job magnet by cracking down on employers who hire illegal workers", she said.

DHS chose to increase the amount of H-2B visas allowed after consulting with the Department of Labor, and was given the authority to do so in the omnibus spending bill that Congress recently approved.

U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly found after consulting with Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta that there were not enough qualified and willing American workers available to perform temporary nonagricultural work, the department said in a statement.

"Congress gave Kelly the authority to put around 70,000 more of those jobs out of the reach of Americans; at least Kelly limited the damage to keeping just 15,000 more Americans out of the labor market", he said in a statement. "Nonetheless, this is yet another example of the administration and Congress failing to keep the Trump campaign promise of putting American workers first".
