The United States depends on a growing private sector to remain strong and immigrant entrepreneurship is a key component to this growth.

Failure to get H-2B (seasonal worker) visas approved has put Maryland’s seafood industry in jeopardy. Almost half of the Eastern Shore’s crab houses do not have workers they need to pick the meat as the crab season begins.
