AGC Presses for Immigration Reform

AGC joined over 400 business organizations calling on Congress to address America’s broken immigration system and prioritize market-based reforms that allow a path for immigrants to aid in workforce issues.

On May 1, AGC joined over 400 business organizations in a letter calling on Congress to address immigration reform this year. The LIBERTY Campaign recognizes there is universal agreement that the U.S. immigration system is broken, placing national security in jeopardy, leaving more than a hundred thousand current construction workers with uncertain futures in the hands of the court system and leaving no legal option for lesser skilled immigrants to meet workforce needs.

AGC views market-based immigration reforms as necessary. The stakes are too important to the industry to allow for another decade of inaction. That is why AGC joined the hundreds of groups in calling for reforms that are viable in the current political climate.

In addition to advocating for reforms, AGC will be providing an educational webinar for members on May 31, 2023, at 2:00 PM ET. With the recognition of the growing workforce challenges in the industry, the webinar will focus on the considerations for construction contractors for employment authorizations and immigration work visas. The webinar will review the programs, the requirements, and options for employers to participate in them. For more information and to register click here.
