I am writing to respectfully request that Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas and DHS immediately release all of the additional H-2B visas authorized under the current law. We just were notified today that the April 1st visa cap has been met and without cap relief actions on behalf of Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas and DHS our company will not receive the necessary workers we need to properly operate in 2021.
Our company relies very heavily on the H-2B program in order to fulfill a desperate need for employees who are willing and able to work in our established landscape services business. Despite continued attempts to hire/employ American workers, We have greatly struggled this year as well as over past years to find individuals to fill our workforce need (let alone find applicants) and allow our company to sustain business, serve our client base well and most importantly support our American workers
Our need is dire and time is of the essence. American workers livelihoods are at stake here. I/we hope you are able and willing to act quickly, release additional visas an address this situation. Thank you for your time and prompt attention to this matter.
