Gov. Wolf Releases Statement on Suspension of New Work Visas

June 25, 2020

Governor Tom Wolf released the following statement today in response to the Trump Administration suspending new work visas, including H-1B visas:

“This is yet another ploy by the Trump Administration to push its xenophobic agenda under the guise of helping Americans. Suspending forms of legal immigration, including the types of work visas entrepreneurs and highly skilled workers rely upon, will harm Pennsylvania’s businesses and economy and slow our recovery from the downturn caused by COVID-19. These workers, who are arriving in Pennsylvania legally, play an essential role in making our communities strong and vibrant. I will continue to fight to keep Pennsylvania as a place that is welcoming to all.”
