The Trump Organization has won the permission to hire 70 foreign workers to serve as maids, cooks and servers for the 2017-2018 tourist season, according to data from the U.S. Labor Department.
The Palm Beach Post reported Friday that Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Fla., won the permission after first applying for the H-2B visas in July. The request was originally filed during Trump's "Made In America" week at the White House.
Palm Beach's unemployment rate currently sits at 3.6 percent. A local job placement agency told the Post that there are plenty of local workers who would be eager to fill the positions.
"We currently have 5,136 qualified candidates in Palm Beach County for various hospitality positions listed in the Employ Florida state jobs database," CareerSource spokesman Tom Veenstra said Friday.
I can't seem to find any reasonable explanation for this other than he's an utter hypocrite.

He hires visa workers because he made America so great again so fast that everyone has a job and nobody wants to work at Mar-a-lago. Also, the media. I blame Obama.
Exactly. Which any reasonable person would think is the opposite since most of them enjoy hunting and fishing and drinking beer outside while BarBQing and having tailgate parties. You would think they would give a damn about the quality of that nature they allegedly love so much.
