Last week, on April 8, USCIS hosted an H-2B Nonimmigrant Worker Supplemental Visas Listening Session. There were many participants on the call representing the landscape industry, forestry, and hospitality along with other industries who benefit from the H-2B program.

Please take a minute to send a short email to USCIS stressing the need for the immediate release of supplemental visas.
