Donald Trump always said we would get tired of all the winning:
“The omnibus spending bill that Congress just passed included good news for businesses that hire foreign guest workers, like the Trump Organization. The bill allows the administration to nearly double the number of H-2B visas available for companies to hire temporary foreign workers this year to 129,547.
The H-2B program is supposed to help US businesses that can’t find American workers to fill temporary jobs at hotels, ski resorts, and landscaping companies. But the law caps the number of work visas at 33,000 for the summer months and 33,000 for the winter months.
Last year, Congress allowed the Department of Homeland Security to issue more H-2B visas in 2017, as long as it didn’t surpass the highest number of H-2B visas ever issued in a year, which was 129,547 in 2007 (back then, returning H-2B workers weren’t counted in the visa cap). The agency ended up issuing an extra 15,000 in July last year, which was a low figure because the summer season was already halfway done. Congress made the same exception for the department this year. …
In February, a coalition of businesses that hire H-2B workers lobbied Congress to lift the cap again. It appears Congress heard them.”
Naturally, the WINNING that we have witnessed over the past week wouldn’t have been complete without a staggering sell out on H-2B caps to the thirsty cheap labor lobby.
So, to recap: Larry Kudlow in charge of the economy. John Bolton in charge of national security. There is no such thing as a free speech crisis in America which is overblown. Cucked on H-2B visas. Cucked on gun control. Cucked on abortion. Cucked on steel and aluminum tariffs. Cucked on a border wall which was the signature issue of the 2016 campaign and which now has no chance of ever being built. $1.3 trillion in spending on a bloated military. We’re building walls in Egypt, Jordan, Tunisia and Lebanon. We’re shelling out billions on Israel including an extra $705 million for missile defense programs. Oh, and all the political capital of the 2016 election was blown on cutting Mark Zuckerberg’s taxes.
