Please take a minute to write to President Trump urging the Administration to exclude international exchange programs from any future executive actions suspending immigration.
In April, the White House issued a proclamation suspending some immigrant visas, which included a section directing an Administration review within 30 days of nonimmigrant programs. As part of that review, the J-1 Exchange Visitor Program is being considered for potential inclusion in another possible executive action that could be issued soon.
Cultural exchange programs help support our national security. Exchange visitors develop a more positive view of the United States and maintain friendships here for years to come. Additionally, these programs add more than a billion dollars to the American economy each year.
Thank you for taking action today!
