FY2018 H-2B: Sustainable Cap Relief Needed!

0

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500.

Last year, H-2B Employers and stakeholders saw how devastating Congress' inactions can be for seasonal businesses in America. Cap relief was swept under the rug and businesses, far and wide, felt the economic impact of not having a sustainable workforce to meet their peakload demands.

We are now headed into FY2018 with widespread uncertainty. Cap relief for FY2018 will likely be determined in the next two weeks. We must all join forces and demand that Congress support American small business by adding the language below:

 

 "Section 214(g)(9)(A) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. 1184(g)(9)(A)) is amended by striking ‘‘2013, 2014, or 2015 shall not again be counted toward such limitation during fiscal year 2016.’’ And inserting ‘‘2017 shall not again be counted toward such limitation during fiscal year 2018.’’

 (1) IN GENERAL- The amendment in subsection (a) shall take effect as if enacted on September 30, 2017, and shall expire on October 1, 2018.

 (2) IMPLEMENTATION- Not later than 14 days after the date of the enactment of this Act, the Secretary of Homeland Security shall begin accepting and processing petitions filed on behalf of aliens described in section 101(a)(15)(H)(ii)(b) of the Immigration and Nationality Act, in a manner consistent with this section and the amendments made by this section. Notwithstanding section 214(g)(9)(B) of such Act, as added by subsection (a), the Secretary of Homeland Security shall allocate additional numbers for fiscal year 2017 based on statistical estimates and projections derived from Department of State data."

 

Please Contact:

Your member of Congress and request that they support H-2B cap relief for FY2018.
