May 21, 2013 | Press Releases

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) issued the following statement welcoming the Senate Judiciary Committee’s passage of an amendment introduced by Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT) to boost American job creation through improvements to the H-1B visa program:

“The Senate Judiciary Committee’s approval of Senator Hatch’s proposal to improve the H-1B visa provisions in the immigration legislation address key concerns shared by many conservatives. We must modernize our broken legal immigration system to meet the needs of America’s 21st century economy and create jobs. Senator Hatch’s amendment provides important protections for American workers while also ensuring that fast-growing and high-tech firms can continue to create jobs here in America. I appreciate Senator Hatch’s longtime leadership on these important issues and welcome his support of our legislation in committee.”
