Biden Finalizes Plan to Import 65K More Foreign Workers for Blue-Collar Jobs:
President Joe Biden will import nearly 65,000 H-2B foreign visa workers to take blue-collar jobs as 11.6 million Americans are jobless and another 3.7 million are underemployed.
In October, Biden’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas announced that the administration would be allowing businesses to import close to 65,000 additional H-2B foreign visa workers to take nonagricultural jobs in construction, meatpacking, and landscaping, among other industries.
On Tuesday, Mayorkas said the plan had been finalized.
“The Department is making supplemental H-2B visas available earlier than ever, ensuring that American businesses can plan for their peak season labor needs,” Mayorkas said in a statement. “At a time of record job growth, these visas will also provide a safe and lawful pathway to the United States for noncitizens prepared to take jobs that are not filled by American workers.”
Specifically, the H-2B visas will go to 20,000 nationals from Haiti and northern Central American countries as well as 45,000 foreign workers who have previously been rewarded the visas.
Biden’s Labor Secretary Marty Walsh previously laid out the administration’s plan to fill unfilled American jobs with foreign workers, rather than pull jobless Americans from the labor market sidelines. --->READ MORE HERE

WaPo: Unfilled U.S. Jobs Belong to Foreign Workers, Not Americans:
The Washington Post, with ties to some of the biggest corporations in the United States, suggests mass immigration is the answer to filling millions of unfilled jobs — rather than pulling millions of Americans into the labor market.
Annually, the U.S. gives more than a million green cards to foreign nationals from all over the world and another million are brought in on temporary work visas to take American jobs. This annual inflow is in addition to the hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens arriving annually with government-approved work permits.
Decades-long mass immigration has inflated the labor market by tens of millions of foreign workers that has not been seen since 1996.
The Washington Post published a piece suggesting that more foreign workers are the answer to filling unfilled U.S. jobs – not necessarily a national full employment agenda to pull millions of jobless Americans back into the labor market, particularly working-age men.
Major corporations are represented on the Post‘s board of directors, including Berkshire Hathaway and the Coca-Cola Company. Mass migration groups like TheDream.US are also represented and companies such as the Vanguard Group, with a history of outsourcing American jobs, holds a stake in the Post. --->READ MORE HERE
