House to vote on Immigration Bill that Includes H2B Returning Worker Exemption
Tuesday, June 26, 2018
The House of Representatives plans to vote tomorrow on a compromise immigration bill offered by Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA), which would mandate that employers use e-verify to confirm the work eligibility of new employees. The bill includes a permanent H-2B worker exemption! It also includes a new ag worker bill, capped at 450,000 workers, nearly $25 billion for a border wall, additional limits legal and illegal immigration, a path to citizenship for recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, and a reversal President Donald Trump's "zero tolerance" policy.
Please call your Representative TODAY and express your strong support for the H-2B cap relief provided in the legislation. You can reach your Representative through the Capitol Switchboard at 202-225-3121. Once connected to the office, as to speak to the staff person who handles immigration issues. Thank you!
