NAM Strongly Opposes Administration’s Immigration Executive Order
Washington, D.C. – National Association of Manufacturers President and CEO Jay Timmons released the following statement on President Trump’s immigration executive order suspending new nonimmigrant visas.
“Leaders should be working to strengthen manufacturing in the United States, but these actions will make our industry unquestionably weaker. The reality is the visa programs targeted by this executive order boost manufacturing in America and support job creation. We will lose talented individuals to other countries, giving them an added advantage in competing against us. This action will not help manufacturers lead our economic recovery and renewal.
“It is painfully clear that Congress should act to advance the comprehensive immigration reform we desperately need.”
