Led by GrayRobinson attorney Glenn Cooper, a delegation from the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce brought the “Voice of Business in South Florida” to Congress recently in Washington, D.C. The Chamber Takes the Hill event involves issue meetings with key members of Congress, congressional staffers, and agency officials.

As Chair of the Public Policy Committee in the Government Affairs Group of the Chamber, Cooper’s role is to advocate for the Miami business community on federal issues in Congress and with federal agencies.

The group met with members of the Congressional delegation including Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, Senator Bill Nelson, Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart, Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, Congresswoman Frederica Wilson, Congresswoman Corrine Brown, and Congressman Joe Garcia. They also met with high-level officials from the Department of Homeland Security, specifically USCIS and USCBP, and the Department of State to focus on immigration reform, including the comprehensive immigration reform bill that deals with many immigration issues including H-1B visas, H-2 visas, and E-Verify that is currently pending in the Senate. Cooper led discussions on behalf of the Chamber and the Miami business community on such important topics as the EB-5 immigrant investor green card program, E-2 investor visas, visa processing from Latin America and Europe, and the facilitation of international travel and tourism to Florida’s airports and ports.
