HOOPERS ISLAND, MD - MAY 17: Freshly picked crab meat is ready to be shipped out, at the W.T. Ruark Seafood Co., on May 17, 2018 in Hoopers Island, Maryland. Due to a new lottery system this year several seafood companies failed to get temporary H-2B visas for their mostly Mexican workforce that has been coming to the Maryland eastern shore for over two decades to pick the crab meat that is sold in restaurants and stores on the east coast.
