The #Trump administration is moving to prohibit people from Haiti — which the president allegedly insulted in a meeting last week — from applying for visas for seasonal and farm workers.
The Department of #Homeland Security has given notice it plans to prohibit people from Haiti, as well as Belize and Samoa, from applying for H-2A and H-2B visas, which are temporary.
Those #visas allow businesses to bring in workers from other countries. The H-2A visa is for agriculture and the H-2B is for non-agricultural seasonal work in places such as resorts.
The notice of which countries are eligible was to be published in the Federal Register on Thursday, but a copy was publicly posted onlineWednesday per the usual process.
In the notice, DHS said that Haitians applying for the visas "present extremely high rates of refusal" and Haitians who have been granted H-2A and H-2B visas "have demonstrated high levels of fraud and abuse and a high rate of overstaying the terms of their H-2 admission." #DHS referred questions about the decision to Citizenship and Immigration Services, which emailed excerpts of DHS’ notice in response. Requests for information on numbers were referred to the State Department Wednesday evening.
Michael Clemens, a senior fellow at the non-partisan Center for Global Development, said the move eliminates the only U.S. work visas that almost everyone in Haiti can apply to get. The number of Haitians who get the visa is in the hundreds.
Other visas require higher skill levels and education. Most Haitians don't qualify for family sponsored visas and because of the number of Haitians already in the U.S. the diversity visa lottery is not open to them.
Clemens said barring Haitians from the visa will encourage illegal migration to the U.S. and hurt the U.S. economy.

Let's use some different tactics.
Trump deals Haiti another blow, ending participation in guest worker program.
The Trump administration has slapped Haiti again.
As of Thursday, Haitian farmers and other laborers seeking to come to the United States as temporary, seasonal workers under the federal H-2A and H-2B guest worker program, will no longer be eligible.
The temporary workers’ visa has for decades allowed hundreds of U.S. farmers, hoteliers and other business owners to hire thousands of foreign seasonal workers.
But citing Haitians’ “extremely high rates of refusal... high levels of fraud and abuse and a high rate of overstaying the terms of their H-2 admission,” the U.S. Department of Homeland Security said Haiti’s inclusion on the lists of eligible countries for 2018 “is no longer in the U.S. interest.” It also announced that the English-speaking Central American country of Belize will be banned, as well as Samoa in the central South Pacific Ocean.
