Biden to Reverse Trump Rule to Allow More Migrants to Flood Into U.S.

(RightWing.org) – President Biden showed his disregard for American workers again on Monday when his administration overturned rules aimed at persuading employers to hire Americans affected by the COVID pandemic.

On April 19, the Department of Homeland Security announced an extra 22,000 H-2B visas for seasonal guest workers, on top of 66,000 existing visa allocations. That will allow almost 90,000 workers to take jobs in the US, while unemployment runs at 6.6% and millions of Americans can’t find work. DHS spokesman Alejandro Mayorkas hinted that the priority will be on immigrants from the so-called “Northern Triangle” countries of Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador. These are low-income countries, and more immigration from them will also push down wages.

President Trump’s administration suspended the H-2B program last year to make more jobs available for unemployed Americans. Now, Biden has decided to take that opportunity away in favor of his immigration agenda.
