"At a time of heightened securityconcerns over terrorism and immigration in the wake of Paris and SanBernardino, Congress is considering an omnibus spending bill that includes as aprovision quadrupling the number of H2-B visas for low-skilled workers. This isas irresponsible on the security front as it is politically deaf, dumb, andblind. House Republicans cannot possibly vote to keep the gates wide open, inthe process making America less secure, while also throwing Americans workersunder the bus. Now is the time for House members to stand up for sanity, andreject the special interests who are selling America's future down theriver."
