                         HON. JOHN CONYERS, JR.

                              of michigan

                    in the house of representatives

                      Wednesday, September 5, 2001

  Mr. CONYERS. Mr. Speaker, I support passage of this legislation, 
which was sponsored by Chairman Gekas, Ranking Member Jackson-Lee, and 
Congresswoman Lofgren. Even though current law permits spouses of E 
visa holders to come to the United States, those same spouses are not 
allowed to work here. The effect is to limit a household to one income 
for no apparent reason.
  H.R. 2277 reverses that by simply allowing the spouses to work in the 
United States. Not only is this good for immigrant families, which now 
would be able to rely on two incomes, but it also will increase the 
labor pool and increase tax revenues. For these reasons, the bill 
passed both the Immigration Subcommittee and the full Judiciary 
Committee by voice votes.
