    Well, not for Trump anyway. Like his businesses he is keeping overseas rather then bring them back to America, and create American jobs, he has exempted himself for the work visa program he has ended for other businesses:

    http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2017/03/20/the-foreign-workers-of-mar-a-lago

    "When it comes to America’s technology industry, Donald Trump takes a dim view of foreign workers. “I will end forever the use of the H-1B as a cheap labor program”—it provides visas for technical and skilled employees—“and institute an absolute requirement to hire American workers for every visa and immigration program,” he said in a statement a year ago. “No exceptions.”

    When it comes to the hospitality industry, though, Trump is much more, well, hospitable. His Administration recently made it harder to get H1-B visas, but he has expressed no objection to the visa category that hotels and resorts use—the H-2B—to attract low-cost, low-skilled seasonal labor. In fact, at Mar-a-Lago, his Palm Beach club, the visas are still in active use. Why the exception to the no-exception rule?"

    IMO, the answer lies in the last sentences of the article:

    "So why would Trump target one visa program but not the other? The answer, as with so much else that Trump has done, is hard to discern from the slew of contradictory messages, but it seems that, when it comes to his own businesses, he’s not eager to take a hit. And no one is making him."

    Like everything Trump says, or does, it seems no one has the balls, or the integrity, to hoild this lying coward responsible, especially those who voted for him.
