Immigration Reform

The hotel industry thrives because our employees are as global as our guests. We have always been a major employer of immigrants, and we also rely on legal guest worker programs to augment our workforce. We believe that the United States can have both an effective and welcoming legal immigration process that enables hotels and other businesses to meet our workforce needs, while also protecting our national security.

Our Position

AHLA urges Congress to pass comprehensive immigration reform and to pass legislation that strengthens the H-2B and J-1 visa programs.
