DHS Approves 15000 Additional Temporary Worker Visas

"Congress gave me the discretionary authority to provide temporary relief to American businesses at risk of significant harm due to a lack of available seasonal workers", said DHS Secretary John Kelly in a statement Monday.
The administration insisted the visa boost is not incompatible with its "America first" pledge. The government does not require them to submit evidence, but requires them to maintain documents that could act as evidence for three years.
The Trump administration announced Monday an increase in seasonal worker visas that United States resorts depend on, but the move halfway through the summer is unlikely to alleviate a nationwide shortage.
Congress allowed the administration to increase the number of H-2B visas in a compromise spending bill passed in May and the new joint rule the Departments of Labor and Homeland Security have put forward will be published in the federal register later this week, according to senior DHS officials.
The Trump Organization is among the businesses that use the visas.
To receive the visas, businesses must attest they would suffer irreparable harm if they can not bring in those workers.
President Donald Trump has been outspoken against what he views as abuses of the H-1B visa program, which allows companies to employ workers over a longer period of time in specialty occupations, including science and technology.
While he was still serving in the Senate, Attorney General Jeff Sessions past 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.
Roy Beck, president of NumbersUSA, a group that favors reduced immigration levels, said in a statement the decision "threatens to reverse the trend of reports emerging around the country of employers working harder and raising pay to successfully recruit more unemployed Americans for lower-skilled jobs".
