Trump's Immigration Hypocrisy

28 Jul 2016  |  Workpermit.com
The article discusses the contradiction between Donald Trump's presidential campaign rhetoric on immigration and his businesses' practices of hiring foreign workers. It highlights that Trump's Mar-a-Lago Club and Trump National Golf Club have sought to hire 78 foreign workers on H-2B visas, despite his public opposition to such visas. The report also touches on allegations that Melania Trump worked illegally in the US before obtaining her visa and that Trump Model Agency employs models on H-1B visas. The article further explores Trump's history of employing immigrants, including the Trump Tower scandal involving Polish workers. It also mentions criticism from Michael Bloomberg, who pointed out Trump's hypocrisy at the Democratic National Convention. The Trump campaign has not responded to these allegations.

Pro-Immigrant Groups Mobilize Against Trump's Candidacy

08 Jun 2016  |  Workpermit.com
The article discusses the efforts of the Binational Coalition Against Donald Trump, a collective of migrant- and migration-focused civil organisations, to counteract the perceived threats posed by Donald Trump's presidential campaign. The Coalition, which includes the Binational Aztlán Migrants Organisation and Casa Aztlán, criticises Trump's anti-immigrant rhetoric and policies, such as building a border wall, deporting migrants, and blocking remittances. Maria García and Carlos Arango, leaders within these organisations, express their concerns about Trump's campaign and its impact on various communities. They also mention the opposition to Trump's rhetoric, including protests and the cancellation of a Trump rally in Chicago. The article highlights the Coalition's plans to use the Latin vote to prevent Trump from becoming president and the upcoming protests in Mexico City and Chicago.
