Trump administration approves more seasonal workers visas

The Department of Homeland Security announced another 35,000 seasonal workers visas will become available.

The Trump administration is making an additional 35,000 temporary worker visas available this year, the Department of Homeland Security announced Thursday.

The visa, formally known as H-2B, allows employers to bring foreign workers to the United States for temporary non-agricultural jobs, such as landscaping, hospitality and other industries.

DHS said in a statement Thursday that the "supplemental allocation was determined after extensive consultation with stakeholders—including members of Congress and the Department of Labor," adding that it's "intended to strike a careful balance that benefits American businesses and American workers."
