“I feel like I’ve been tricked by the devil,” Devine admitted. “I feel so stupid.”

Devin says Trump’s policies are more about race than economics, noting that Trump properties in New York and Florida rely upon the H-2B visa program for 144 jobs a year.

“I think there’s a war on brown people,” he argued. “I want to know why it’s OK for him to get his workers, but supporters like me don’t get theirs.”

“We live and die by these visas,” said Ken Monin, owner of Monin Construction. “Last year we about went bankrupt. The workers we were supposed to get in March didn’t show up until August because they couldn’t get visas.”

“Americans don’t want most of these jobs,” Monin claimed.
