I don't have a problem with legal aliens who are here to work, nor do I remember Trump saying that.   This piece is based on the lefty mantra that Trump's criticism of illegal immigration is a attack on all immigration.   Don't buy into that spin.   Tom

Mar-a-Lago asks to hire more foreign workers

The jobs would begin on Oct. 1 and end in May 2018, according to the filings. Those positions would take advantage of the H-2B visa program, which allows U.S. employers to bring foreign nations to the country for temporary, non-agricultural work.

The Trump National Golf Course in Jupiter, Fla., also filed a request to hire temporary foreign workers as cooks for the same period of time.

The requests came as the White House celebrates what it has designated "Made in America Week," highlighting American-made products and re-upping the administration's emphasis on bringing jobs back to the U.S.

Employers must establish that there are not enough American workers able or willing to fill the temporary positions in order to qualify for H-2B classification. 

The cook positions at both Mar-a-Lago and the golf course pay $13.34 per hour, according to the filings. The server jobs pay $11.88 per hour, while the housekeeping positions pay $10.33 per hour.

As a presidential candidate and in his first six months in office, Trump touted the importance of U.S. manufacturing and labor and savaged international trade agreements, saying they have killed American jobs. 

The president signed an executive order in April promoting what he has dubbed a "Buy American, Hire American" agenda. The order also tightened rules on granting H-1B visas to skilled foreign workers.

But the Trump administration moved to expand the H-2B program on Monday, saying it would offer an additional 15,000 visas because not enough American workers are willing or able to fill the country's employment needs for the rest of the 2017 fiscal year.

Trump has defended the hiring of foreign workers at Mar-a-Lago, saying during an appearance on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" in September that "getting help in Palm Beach during the season is almost impossible."

 President Donald Trump has thrown his support behind legislation that looks to curb the level of legal immigration into the United States by proposing a skills-based system.
 Top White House aides have been working with Republican Sens. David Perdue and Tom Cotton on a bill that -- if passed -- would dramatically remake the current immigration system, which allows a number of ways to bring family members to the US along with job-based visas.
 Trump cast the proposal as a way to protect American workers by reducing unskilled immigration and creating a merit-based system that grades possible immigrants based on their ability to work in the United States.
 "It has not been fair to our people, to our citizens, to our workers," Trump said of the current immigration system, specifically citing low-income and minority workers. The bill, Trump said, "would represent the most significant reform to our immigration system in half a century."
 The effort is expected to be met with skepticism from both Democrats and Republicans. But Trump's support could help the measure gain traction.
