Moderator(s): Peter Comstock, Senior Director of Legislative Affairs, ABC


WEBINAR DESCRIPTION
ABC Members Only

With the ongoing significance of immigration in U.S. politics, ABC is focused on advocating for an immigration system that secures our borders and effectively enforces immigration laws on the books—all while considering the contributions of hardworking undocumented immigrants currently in the United States and providing employers with a flexible visa system that allows sufficient access to foreign workers.

ABC believes that commonsense, market-driven immigration reforms would allow us to better address the nation’s workforce needs while providing jobs through legal avenues and discouraging illegal immigration. This webinar will discuss ABC’s immigration’s priorities and hear from Rep. Lloyd Smucker, R-Pa., about his proposal to enact a new visa program to alleviate the worker shortage and help employers.
