TFT - DHS Approves 30,000 More H-2B Workers
This week, the Trump administration announced their decision to release 30,000 additional H-2B visas for fiscal year 2019. The H-2B visa allows employers in non-agricultural industries to hire foreign guest-workers. While the program has a statutory annual cap of 66,000, language included in recent spending bills have given the secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) authority to temporarily raise this cap. This is the largest increase allowed under the Trump administration.
