Final H-2B Letter & Need for Local Calls/Meetings Email
Thursday, November 16, 2017 12:00 AM

H-2B visa programThanks again to everyone who reached out to their Representatives and asked them to sign the attached letter that was sent earlier today to House Speaker Paul Ryan and Minority Leader Pelosi. A bipartisan letter from 65 Members of Congress to House leaders is a powerful tool! If your Representative signed the letter, please follow up and say thank you.

To get cap relief signed into law, however, all of our Congressional outreach must continue. Beginning tomorrow, Senators and Representatives will be their home states through November 27. Please call or visit in person with your Senators and Representatives at their district offices. Phone calls and visits to the district office while your elected officials are home will help amply our message that we need cap relief now. You can find the local contact information for your Senators and Representative on their websites, through www.house.gov and www.senate.gov, or in this sheet from ALCC. Please stress the need for Congress to include H-2B cap relief in any year-end spending bill or any other appropriate legislation. Stress the importance of H-2B workers to your business, your American workforce, and the local community. Please also encourage your colleagues, employees, vendors, and customers to make similar calls.
