WEEKLY  NEWSLETTER

THIS ISSUE: An agreement between Republicans staffers and lobbyist group would double the number of H-2B guest worker visas available

 FRI,  NOV 30th

This week it was reported that Congressional Republicans were working on legislation that would permanently double the number of H-2B guest worker visas given out each year, from 66,000 to 132,000. These visas are used by employers to bring in foreign workers to take jobs in landscaping, food service, meat processing, hospitality services, janitorial and housekeeping work, and other lower-skilled, non-agricultural occupations. 

As reported in the Breitbart story included in this newsletter, Republican Members of Congress “have cut a deal with the business lobby to allow businesses to import as many foreign workers — instead of hiring blue-collar Americans — so long as they meet certain requirements.” 

This agreement to displace more American workers comes at the same time the Department of Labor announced that unemployment claims had been climbing for the last three weeks of November, a troubling sign heading into the Christmas hiring season. It is also an unprecedented move. 

The The Washington Times reported that there was a Memorandum of Understanding between staffers for Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA), Sen. Thom Tillis (R-NC), Sen. Mike Rounds (R-SC), and Rep. Andy Harris (R-MD) with a lobbying group named the H-2B Workforce Coalition and the Seasonal Employment Alliance. This MOU purportedly is an agreement to double H-2B visas in exchange for businesses using E-Verify to check new hires, and, over a period of years, check hires as far back as 2012. However, any unauthorized worker on the payroll could be replaced with an H-2B worker without that additional guest worker counting against the cap. Perversely, this may allow some employers to replace illegal alien employees, who may be making more money and may leave to take a job with another employee, with a legal guest worker who earns less and is tied to a specific employer. 

Commenting on the MOU, NumbersUSA Deputy Director Chris Chmielenski told the The Washington Times: 

I don’t ever recall seeing a formal agreement between Congressional staff and employers to draft legislation to increase employers’ access to cheap, foreign labor….Donald Trump won the White House by running on a pro-American-worker immigration message, but his party lost control of the House during the midterms by abandoning that message. This agreement is evidence that Republicans haven’t learned from their recent election losses.  

NumbersUSA Director of Government Relations told Breitbart: 

In 28 years of working in Washington, I have never seen congressional staffers sign an agreement with lobbying organizations to produce special-interest legislation that directly benefits those lobbying groups….I’m sure their constituents would love to hear them explain why they are so eager to help employers keep wages down for lower-skilled American workers.

With wages stagnant for working Americans and more than 40 million Americans out of work, Congress should not be trying to make things worse. 

Take Action: Tell your Member of Congress NOT to allow an increase in H-2B guest workers.
