H-2B visa program update

Below you'll find a link to a video of President Trump at his rally in Michigan, where he made comments in support of H-2B. Says NALP's Paul Mendelsohn, "This is the first time that he has made public comments recognizing the need for the program during his presidency. Of course, the statement could be viewed as a policy trial balloon; he made the comments in front of an extremely pro-Trump group and quite frankly the reaction he received was lukewarm at best. Regardless, it is an important development that we thought you should know about. At a minimum, we should be able to use the soundbite to our advantage as we continue our push for short-term cap relief and permanent cap-reform."

This week, many of our representatives are back in Denver. Please reach out to them and ask them for support of the H-2B visa program. Additionally, we must continue pressure on DOL and DHS to release the additional visas immediately. 

The video can be viewed at https://youtu.be/ooX8pufHGHg.

If you have any questions about this matter or want to get more involved in H-2B advocacy, please John McMahon at 303 757-5611.
