Why some companies decide to hire developers with US/CA only restrictions?

What kind of the position the discussion is about? What kind of bad salary we are talking about, bad as in I am a developer and I want to have 3x the salary of the average person, or bad that it doesn’t pay to write code, and doing something else is paying better?

Bad as in the same pay that I got at my first job in Paris fresh out of university, but 15 years later. Namely, around 33k a year. For what we call a CDI so permanent contract, full time (35 hours a week), for a full stack position. It is still quite a bit higher than the median French salary though.
