SHRM Sends Letter to White House: Nonimmigrant Visa Holders Will Contribute to the U.S. Recovery Post COVID-19

On May 28, SHRM President and CEO Johnny C. Taylor, Jr., SHRM-SCP, sent a letter to the White House highlighting the critical role that nonimmigrant visa holders will play in strengthening the U.S. economy and labor market post COVID-19. The letter also highlighted SHRM member concerns about talent acquisition and the importance of the Optional Practical Training Program. President Donald Trump is expected to issue an immigration-focused executive order as early as next week. SHRM will continue to advocate for an employment-based immigration system that allows employers to secure the best talent.
