Buy American and Hire American Listening Session

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) invites you to attend a listening session on Thursday, April 18, 2019, from 2 to 4 p.m. Eastern about strengthening protections for U.S. workers and implementing the Buy American and Hire American (BAHA) Executive Order (EO).

On April 18, 2017, President Trump signed the BAHA EO, which, among other things, seeks to create higher wages and employment rates for U.S. workers and to protect their economic interests by rigorously enforcing and administering our immigration laws. Over the past two years, USCIS has worked on a combination of rulemaking, policy memoranda, and operational changes to implement the BAHA EO.

During this listening session, USCIS and other attendees will hear feedback from displaced U.S. workers, industry leaders, practitioners, and academics. Their input will enable USCIS to determine the effectiveness of its efforts to implement the BAHA EO.
