The Trump administration is banning any more temporary visas to Haitian applicants.
Haiti, Belize and Samoa will be removed from the list of countries where residents are eligible for H-2A and H-2B.
There are about 80 countries whose residents are eligible for the low-skill visas.
H-2A and H-2B visas are typically used for seasonal work.
Nearly 40% of Haitians who receive temporary work visas illegally overstay their visa.
Somalia is being removed for not accepting deported illegals back to their country.
Meanwhile, human trafficking concerns have disqualified Belize.
The move comes following President Donald Trump’s decision to end the Temporary Protected Status of more than 200,000 El Salvadorians. People here from El Salvador, who are not citizens, will have until September 2019 to leave the country.
Back in November, President Trump ended the Temporary Protected Status for Haiti.
These moves are all part of the President’s pledge to reform America’s broken immigration system. President Trump has pushed for a merit-based system of immigration. He’s also called for the end of Chain Migration, the Diversity Lottery and funding of a massive border wall.
The President also famously ended the Obama-era Deferred Action for Child Arrivals program. He insists any deals to legalize the 800,000 DACA applicants must include funding for the wall and other immigration reforms. Democrats have decided they’d rather shut the government down than provide funding for the Great Wall of Trump.
Last week, the President was accused of calling Haiti and nations in Africa “sh!tholes.” The accusations triggered Leftists into a rage.
The President denies using those words, but does say he used “tough language.”
If he did say it, it is hard to argue Haiti is not a “sh!thole,” filled with corruption, crime, violence and poverty. In fact, Haitians literally live in garbage and eat mud pies.
