Rep. Gallagher Signs On to Resolution Supporting J-1 Program

Rep. Mike Gallagher co-sponsored a House Resolution supporting the J-1 visa program. The resolution expresses, “the sense of the House of Representatives that the J–1 visa programs, specifically the Summer Work Travel, Au Pair, Camp Counselor, and Intern and Trainee programs, are vital to the economy and national interests of the United States and the Congress should continue to monitor the administration of these programs in their current form.” Rep. Gwen Moore (District 4) and Ron Kind (District 3) have also cosponsored the resolution. In September, the Wall Street Journal reported the Trump administration was eyeing the program for potential elimination under the “Buy American, Hire American” executive order signed in April.
