Trump Seeks 78 Visas for Foreign Workers

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump seeks temporary visas for foreign workers for 78 positions—including servers, cooks, and housekeepers—at his Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach and the Trump National Golf Club in Jupiter. Trump has pledged to restore American jobs, and he repeated that goal last week during the Republican National Convention, when he said, “I’m going to bring our jobs back to Ohio and Pennsylvania and New York and Michigan and all of America.” Still, instead of seeking Americans to work those jobs, he is seeking out foreign workers for the positions. The applications filed this month claim there aren't enough Americans available to do the work. But officials at a career services agency in the area say that Trump’s claims are untrue. One such official told BuzzFeed that he had “hundreds of people in our database that would qualify for a lot of those hospitality jobs” and a database with the names of 1,327 Palm Beach County residents looking for such positions.
