Palm Beach minority groups want to stop guest workers. (because they are white)


Professional race hustlers like the NAACP and Latino groups are usually major advocates of open borders. However, after seeing an influx of white South Africans and Eastern Europeans in Palm Beach, they are having a sudden change of heart. The staff of CofCC.org will now await for the local media to denounce the NAACP, The Urban League, and the Hispanic Human Resources Council as racists and xenophobes.

From Palm Beach Post…

Leaders in the Palm Beach County minority community are calling for changes to procedures that country clubs and resorts use to import hundreds of foreign workers every year, and say they can supply U.S. citizens to fill those jobs.

One community leader called for abolition of the “guest worker” program.

Last Sunday, The Palm Beach Post published a story listing some of the county’s top resorts and more than a dozen country clubs that import foreign workers for jobs they classify as “seasonal” but most of which last seven to 10 months.

The U.S. Labor Department made 1,500 of the guest worker H-2B visas available over the past year for Palm Beach County employers, to bring in workers for such jobs as waiter, waitress, cook, housekeeper and golf range attendant, among others. The State Department provided additional visas, known as J-1’s.

Before they import the workers, employers must attest that local U.S. citizens are not available for those jobs. But leaders of local NAACP and Urban League chapters, as well as the executive director of the Hispanic Human Resources Council, said this week that those employers are not seriously recruiting workers locally, at a time when the county’s unemployment rate is over 10 percent and at least twice that in the minority communities.

Jorge Avellana of the Hispanic Human Resources Council sent letters of protest Thursday to U.S. Sens. Bill Nelson, a Democrat, and Marco Rubio, a Republican, and to U.S. Reps. Allen West, R-Plantation; Tom Rooney, R-Tequesta; Ted Deutch, D-Boca Raton; and Alcee Hastings, D-Miramar.

“I was very disturbed on Sunday morning when reading The Palm Beach Post,” Avellana wrote in his letters. “I found out that many local businesses are importing unskilled labor from Romania South Africa and other countries to work in the tourism business at the expense of the American workers.
