The issue is due to get greater attention after the Department of Homeland Security announced on July 17 that it would allow companies to hire up to 15,000 additional foreign workers. He obtained "discretional authority" from Congress to provide "temporary relief" to United States companies that are going to be impacted without seasonal workers. Hamelback emphasized that Monday's H-2B cap increase is separate from the issue of whether Congress will reinstate the H-2B returning worker exemption, which would allow workers who have previously qualified for an H-2B visa to return without counting against the federal cap. Tillis's insatiable desire for cheap foreign labor, or if he will continue blocking the qualified nominee to extort more H-2B visas for the next fiscal year, beginning on October 1. However, this move could adversely impact the unemployed of America, as noted by Roy Beck, President of NumbersUSA, an advocate for reduced immigration.

But Congress did not renew the returnees exemption when it expired last fall, effectively curbing the number of available visas.

"The administration's decision to exceed the 66,000 cap not only undermines struggling American workers, but betrays unequivocal promises President Trump made in his campaign", FAIR President Dan Stein charged at the time.

"While there may be legitimate needs among employers who rely on H-2B workers in certain sectors of the economy, a growing body of evidence shows that our increasing reliance on the H-2B visa program hurts wages for American workers, and puts their jobs at risk".

In order to qualify for the additional visas, businesses must attest under penalty of perjury that they are likely to suffer irreparable harm if they can't employ H-2B workers for the rest of the year. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), the ranking Democrat on the committee released a statement in opposition.

"This move by leadership and appropriators cedes portions of this authority to the executive branch without a public debate", Grassley and Feinstein said.

The release of a new batch of seasonal worker visas is sending ME hotels and restaurant owners scrambling to submit applications before the supply of new visas is exhausted. "You needed them, or we just might as well close the doors, because you couldn't get help in those hot, hot sections of Florida".
