Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) issued the following statement in response to the Trump administration’s decision to restrict the issuance of new visas for temporary nonimmigrant workers for the rest of the year:

Temporary nonimmigrant workers contribute to the U.S. economy, pay taxes, and help drive innovation and job creation. Even in the current employment environment, limiting visas for these workers will only serve to prevent companies from filling open positions. This will slow economic growth, drive up the costs of goods and services, and ultimately cost jobs for American workers.”
