The construction industry is experiencing record economic activity with low unemployment and little expectation that the current domestic workforce can alone meet employment demand.

Currently, our nation's immigration system provides the high-tech sector, agricultural businesses, and seasonal employers with options for legal work authorized immigrants. It does not for construction.

Legislation has been introduced in Congress that would allow contractors to hire year-round construction guest workers, who otherwise have no legal immigration avenue. The Workforce for an Expanding Economy Act would provide industries like construction access to tens of thousands of new temporary workers while protecting Americans and alleviating incentives for individuals to enter the country illegally.

Contact your members of Congress and urge them to support this legislation.
