Anti-immigrant Donald Trump Likes Hiring Immigrants for his Florida Resort
Donald Trump launched his campaign with promises to bring jobs back to America from the likes of China and Mexico.
He says he would be the “greatest jobs-producing president that God ever created.”
Um, let’s not go crazy Trumpster.
BUT, according to a damning New York Times article, those jobs are likely for foreigners…
They reported Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lagos resort, a private and exclusive club in Palm Beach, Fla., has repeatedly turned away Americans looking for jobs in favor of foreign workers.
So now you like immigrants, don’t ya?
Yup, a lot of the people hired at the resort have needed visas.
According to the Department of Labor, 296 locals have applied for seasonal jobs at the resort since 2010. Only 17 were hired. In that same period, resort requested more than 500 H-2B visas for foreign workers.
When questioned, Trump told the New York Times that his resort had to go with foreign workers because nobody wanted those jobs.
What happened to the 279 Americans not hired?
Guess this is just another Trump lie…
Fun Fact: According to Politifact, Trump lies more than 75% of the time.
