Paul Ryan just betrayed President Trump, America, Trump supporters, and most importantly the American middle class worker.
Thanks, Paul we will remember this when you’re up for reelection.
According to Breitbart, Paul Ryan is once again sticking a knife in the back of the American worker by jamming through authorization of more foreign workers into America.
Homeland defense secretary John Kelly will ok a whopping additional 15,000 H-2B visas for foreign blue-collar workers in 2017.
Kelly released a statement that said:
“U.S. businesses in danger of suffering irreparable harm due to a lack of available temporary nonagricultural workers will be able to hire up to 15,000 additional temporary nonagricultural workers under the H-2B program under a final rule that the Departments of Homeland Security and Labor submitted to the Federal Register today. To qualify for the additional visas, petitioners must attest, under penalty of perjury, that their business is likely to suffer irreparable harm if it cannot employ H-2B nonimmigrant workers during fiscal year (FY) 2017.
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. 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.”
The decision was forced by top GOP members of Congress like Paul Ryan and is, according opponents of the bill, “a betrayal of President Donald Trump’s campaign promise to deliver blue-collar jobs to Americans.”
“Kelly’s decision to increase H-2B foreign workers 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,” said Roy Beck, president of NumbersUSA, before adding, “Congress gave Kelly the authority to put around 70,000 more of those jobs out of the reach of Americans… this is yet another example of the Administration and Congress failing to keep the Trump campaign promise of putting American workers first.”
