Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, July 17, 2017

The Department of Homeland Security will issue up to 15,000 visas allowing U.S. companies to hire temporary, non-agricultural workers, an announcement that comes as President Donald Trump has pushed a "Hire American" theme and at the start of the administration's "Made in America" week. To qualify for the H-2B visas, hiring companies must attest under the penalty of perjury that they are "likely to suffer irreparable harm" without the influx of workers, the Department of Homeland Security's Monday announcement said. The additional visas are being allowed, the department said, because the annual, congressionally mandated allotment of 66,000 H-2Bs was reached last March, leaving some businesses without "enough qualified and willing U.S. workers available to perform temporary nonagricultural labor."

Ivanka's stuff is made in China.

"enough qualified and willing U.S. workers" So unqualified they are required to train their foreign replacements or lose their retirement and unemployment benefits.

How long will it take Trump's base to figure out that he was playing them for fools during the entire campaign and has no intention of canceling NAFTA, stopping offshoring of jobs, improving your health care...?

They'd have to watch something other than Faux News to get some real information first.

The GOP suddenly became rational and reasonable? Or did Trump resign while I wasn't looking?

I am sure THAT is what Democrats REALLY want.
