26 GOP Senators, 97 House Republicans Ask For More Foreign Workers To Fill U.S. Jobs – Report

With everything going on in the D.C. swamp, it’s hard for many Americans to actually see real news taking place in other parts of the country.

This is especially true given House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Democrats are on the cusp of passing a bill that would bring more foreign workers to the United States to compete against working-class Americans for jobs.

In total, 123 Republicans in the Senate and House have signed and sent a letter to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf to bring more foreign workers to America to fill jobs.

In a letter to Wolf, 26 Republican Senators and 97 Republican House members joined 66 Senate and House Democrats in demanding DHS allow businesses to bring an additional roughly 30,000 foreign workers on the H-2B visa program to take nonagricultural blue-collar U.S. jobs.

Every year, U.S. companies are allowed to import 66,000 low-skilled H-2B foreign workers to take blue-collar, non-agricultural jobs.

Businesses have used the H-2B visa program has been used by businesses to bring in cheaper, foreign workers and has contributed to blue-collar Americans having their wages undercut.

“We urge DHS to release the maximum number of additional visas without delay,” the Senators and House members wrote. “These vital American businesses depend on the expeditious release of a sufficient number of additional visas.”

And, to state the obvious, Trump is vehemently against this bill and the idea of taking away jobs from Americans.

This bill is not something Trump and his administration support.

Trump’s team has spent three years trying to tighten the labor market, which has secured historic wage hikes for blue-collar and working-class Americans.

And the fact that a total of 123 Republicans in Congress support this bill will not sit well with the president.
