Maine State Chamber of Commerce Recommends the Proposed Rule to Delay and Prohibit Asylum Seeker be Withdrawn
The Maine State Chamber of Commerce recognizes the President and Congress for the actions they have taken to help businesses recover from the COVID-19 epidemic. As our economy rebounds, Maine businesses will need assurances that they can meet all their workforce needs. To that end, it is crucial that they have access to talent both from Maine and other states as well as from around the world. Policies that would, for example, impose wide-ranging bans on the entry of non-immigrant workers or impose burdensome new regulatory requirements would threaten businesses access to that talent, and hinder the economic growth and creating of jobs in Maine.
