H2B Update: Ask your Congressmen to Encourage the DHS to issue additional visas
Sunday, March 25, 2018

Due to the hard work of the Grassroots (that means YOU) letting your member of Congress know that H-2B Cap Relief is vital to your business, the lobbyists, the trade associations, the H-2B Coalition, the Seasonal Employment Alliance, our Champions in Congress were able to have H-2B Cap Relief language placed into the Omnibus that has been passed by Congress and signed by the President.

There was a great amount of negotiation, several different proposals presented, some would have hurt the H-2B program more than they helped, many with unintended consequences that could not even be imagined.  Believe it or not, after months of discussions, meetings, and conference calls, what survived was the exact same language that was authorized by Congress in May of 2017.  

The language gives the Secretary of Homeland Security the ability to raise the cap by up to 68,000 additional visas.  The language does NOT mandate that the Secretary raise the cap nor does it provide a timeline.  Last year the cap was raised, but by only 15,000 visas and not until July - when the damage had been done for many employers and completing the process and filing for workers would have been moot as their seasonal need was over.  We need for your members of Congress to let the Department of Homeland Security Secretary know that she needs to take immediate action and start accepting applications for H-2B workers and raise the cap to the maximum number authorized by Congress.

Your member of Congress and your Senators are on Spring Break and should be in your District this week.  Although you may not be able to visit with member of Congress it is imperative that you customize the attached letter and send to each of your members of congress.

Best way is to HAND DELIVER to the District Office.

Second Best, Scan and Email to your Members of Congress.  If you have been in contact with their offices, have picked up the business cards from the offices, the emails should be on the cards.  If not, there should be email addresses on their websites.

If you cannot deliver in person, cannot scan and email, then fax!! 

If you do not know who your members of Congress are, click here to look it up by providing your home address.

  • There is a draft for your company to use if you have already received your workers.  It is extremely important that you take action, even though you will get your workers this year; what about next year?  Download this draft.

  • If you have NOT received your workers, download this draft.

  • There is a draft for you to provide to your fairs/festivals/sponsors.  Download this draft.

  • There is a draft for you to provide to your suppliers.  Download this draft.

Do NOT send the DRAFT letters unedited!  Open them up.  Cut and paste onto your company letterhead.  They are not perfect, they are rough drafts, intended to be customized so that it reflects your business and your current situation, and is addressed to your members of Congress.

Do NOT mail via US Postal Service to anyone as there is NO TIME for it to be received in Washington and screened.  You must either EMAIL or FAX to your Representative and two Senators or hand deliver to the district offices of your members of congress.

THIS IS AN EMERGENCY REQUEST, IT IS A TRUE EMERGENCY, SO PLEASE DO NOT BLOW THIS EMAIL OFF AND ASSUME THAT SOMEONE ELSE WILL TAKE ACTION.
