‘‘State Sponsored Visa Pilot Program Act of 2017’’ is thoughtful conservative approach to immigration

WASHINGTON – Today, Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) and Congressman Ken Buck (R-CO) introduced the “State Sponsored Visa Pilot Program Act of 2017,” which would allow states to create a state-based non-immigrant guest worker program. Following the release of the “State Sponsored Visa Pilot Program Act of 2017,” FWD.us Campaign Manager Rob Jesmer released the following statement:

“The Johnson-Buck bill is an innovative and thoughtful conservative approach to immigration to fit the needs of local economies. Giving state officials a greater say in how best to meet their local workforce needs through a flexible and fair guest worker program will help fill labor gaps in local economies and improve border security by providing additional avenues for businesses to legally hire temporary workers.”
