Amped-u​p Push for Immigration Reform from America’s Largest Employers


ACIP and SHRM Double Down on Advocacy Efforts with New Website, Ad Campaign; Coincides with Return of Congress and 2013 ACIP Advocacy Day


ACIP and SHRM have launched a new online hub and print and online ad campaign, marking a heightened push for immigration reform from U.S. employers, coinciding with ACIP’s 2013 Advocacy Day.

The stepped-up campaign will feature a newly launched website – www.EmployerImmigrationSolutions.org– as well as advertising and advocacy that all focus on three key employer solutions:

  • Certainty in hiring through enabling a single, federal, entirely electronic employment verification system that protects against identity theft.
  • Increased system efficiency through, among other improvements, creating a “Trusted Employer” system.
  • Access to highly educated and skilled talent by clearing backlogs and improving future access to green cards and temporary visas such as H-1B and L-1 visas.
