trumpGuest Worker visas are nothing less than the return of indentured servitude to the United States because unlike permanent residents and citizens guest workers can change jobs only with difficulty and can be sent home at the whim of an employer.

Trump can claim he is importing the "good ones", but the sad fact is that when they're not,  current law makes him and other employers in no way legally responsible for criminal activity his indentured servants commit while in the US.
