Letter asking for administrative actions to address coronavirus related immigration issues

Thursday, April 16, 2020 - 1:30pm

Dear Secretaries Wolf, Scalia, and Pompeo:


The Chamber appreciates the flexibility your departments have provided to firms that rely on foreign nationals working in industries that are contributing to the pandemic response. Hospitals, manufacturers, producers of agricultural commodities, technology companies, among many others, are grateful for the measures you have taken. However, a lack of certainty remains in some areas related to immigration policy, and action on your parts would improve collective efforts to respond to the challenges of the coronavirus.
