U.S. Chamber of Commerce

U.S. Chamber of Commerce is having a meeting on "Comprehensive Immigration Reform: Fixing a Broken System". The meeting will take place October 18, 2005 in Washington, DC. Registration is now open. AILA is a co-sponsor of this event. On the USCC website the Issues Center; lists as an Immigration Policy Priorities for 2005-2006; As the federal government reorganizes to fight terrorism, work with the administration and Congress to ensure that immigration policies and procedures remain responsible, efficient, and fair. Continue to respond to ill-advised, albeit well-intentioned, policies directed at terrorism that will seriously impact border trade and business immigration without achieving increased national security.

Urge Congress and the administration to address current and potential delays, backlogs, and disruptions in our immigration and border management systems that impede the movement of legitimate cargo and travelers across U.S. borders. Continue to advance long-term immigration objectives to secure additional workers to counteract demographic trends and provide for earned legalization of essential workers. Ensure the continuity of H-1B and L-1 visas for professionals and highly valued workers. Push for continuation of employers’ ability to access needed talent and meet global workforce needs.
