Letter: We need Ayotte’s help
Sen. Kelly Ayotte has proven she is a committed conservative voice for New Hampshire, and she is not afraid to cast tough votes in the best interests of her constituents. Today, we need her help to pass immigration reform.
New Hampshire high-tech companies must have the best-trained workers available to grow and innovate, which will help boost our state’s economy and employment base. Ayotte’s support for the Gang of Eight’s reform plan will create more H-1B visas to help meet that crucial labor demand.
We also need her support for strong border security and a functional guest worker program. Although we are far removed from the most troublesome border crossing areas, New Hampshire businesses and families will still benefit from immigration reform policies that safeguard our borders and integrate legal workers into America’s labor force.
Immigration reform is a complicated issue that the Senate will face this year, and it is critically important to pass a reform bill. I look forward to seeing Ayotte continue to play a pivotal role in bringing about meaningful reform.
