U.S. allows more seasonal workers as Trump pushes 'hire American'The U.S. government cleared the way on Monday for thousands more foreign workers to enter the country under temporary seasonal visas, just as President Donald Trump declared this “Made In America” week and pledged to stand up for U.S. workers. Advocates of stricter limits on immigration criticized the additional visas, saying American workers should get job openings. Trump, a former New York real estate magnate who has relied on seasonal workers at his hotels and resorts, campaigned on promises to restore American jobs.
