    Exclusive: Donald Trump's companies have sought visas to import at least 1,100 workers

    Donald Trump is staking his run for U.S. president in part on a vow to protect American jobs. But this month, one of his companies, the elite Mar-a-Lago Club resort in Florida, applied to import 70 foreign workers to serve as cooks, wait staff and cleaners.

    A Reuters analysis of U.S. government data reveals that this is business as usual in the New York property magnate's empire.

    I guess he couldn't find any American citizen minorities in West Palm Beach to clean his club in Palm Beach.

    Good help is hard to find. Sometimes you have to go to Mexico to get them. And bring them back to take American jobs. Trump: making America great again.

    Companies owned by GOP frontrunner Donald Trump have sought at least 1,100 foreign worker visas since 2000—a practice that stands in stark contrast to Trump’s self-portrayal as a presidential candidate who would create and protect American jobs

    I could hope his Republican opponents in this Thursday's debate will mention this. But I doubt they'll have the guts, lest Trump drag out their own dirty linen.

    And catching Trump's hypocrisy with his own Chinese imports, for which he criticized others, seems not to have hurt him a bit with Republican voters. But then they only listen to racial hatred and stereotypes; details, contradictions & truth are not of interest to the average Republican voter, and least of all the Teabaggers, who are currently running the Party at State level, and nearly at Federal.

    Donald Trump is running for president with a message of bringing jobs back to the U.S., but at many of his businesses the Republican real-estate mogul has had a habit of importing foreign workers. Trump owns companies that have sought to import at least 1,100 foreign workers on temporary visas since 2000
    Although Trump’s presidential campaign has been short on providing specifics to date, it has been built in large part on the concept of keeping jobs in the U.S. or bringing those already sent overseas back here. “I will be the greatest jobs president that God ever created,” he said while announcing his candidacy June 16. “I will bring back our jobs from China, Mexico and other places. I will bring back jobs and our money.”

    But as a businessman, Trump’s job creation has gone largely in the opposite direction. Nine companies majority-owned by Trump have sought to bring in foreign cooks, laborers, vineyard workers and wait staffers through temporary work-visa programs administered by the Labor Department...
