Reps. Bergman (R-MI) and Keating (D-MA) are circulating the attached letter that will be sent to House Appropriations Committee leaders in advance of committee action on the Fiscal 2020 Department of Homeland Security Appropriations bill in mid-June. We are grateful for their leadership on this issue.
Please call your Representative and ask him or her to sign the attached letter. If they have signed supportive H-2B letters in the past, please thank them for their continued efforts and support. Please also be aware that members of the Appropriations Committee will often not sign on a letter to appropriations leaders even if they are very supportive of the H-2B program. If this is the case with your Member, thank him or her for their support and encourage them to support any effort to include H-2B cap relief in the DHS funding bill.
You can reach you Representative through the Capitol switchboard at 202-225-3121. Once connected to the office, please ask to speak to the staff person that handles H-2B visas issues. You can also send an email to your lawmakers by using the following link set up by NALP: https://p2a.co/l5fTSY7
