Local Landscapers push for more work visas

Mark Borst headed for Washington, D.C., last week, hoping to boost the flow of labor back and forth across the Mexican border.

The president of Allendale-based Borst Landscape and Design Inc. was among 500 American businessmen lobbying their congressional representatives to increase the number of temporary work visas, known as H-2Bs, issued by the U.S. each year.

The visas allow businesses such as landscapers, house painters, construction companies and restaurants to legally bring foreign workers into the U.S. for nine months, after which they return home.
