J-1 Program Updates

According to a recent article published by the Wall Street Journal, the current Administration is considering cuts to the J-1 Exchange Visitor Program in five categories, which include Summer Work Travel, Camp Counselor, Intern, Trainee, and Au Pair.

In April 2017, President Trump’s Buy American, Hire American Executive Order, called for a review of U.S. immigration rules to ensure that the interests of domestic workers are protected.

Given this recent information, CCUSA is asking for your support.

J-1 Exchange Visitors help our local economy by allowing U.S. businesses and camps to stay open during high points of the season. They share their personal stories with us. They teach us about their different cultures, allowing mutual understanding between countries to increase.

The Department of State has made exchange programs a central part of its public diplomacy efforts for decades. These programs bring the world's best and brightest to the U.S., where they engage personally with American citizens and communities. New restrictions or possible eliminations to the J-1 programs would cripple these diplomatic efforts.
