The H-2B visa program is gaining attention from a bipartisan group of senators here on Capitol Hill who believe it will grow jobs.

But those against the bill don't like these jobs not going to America workers.

Chris Chmielenski, Director of Content and Activism for NumbersUSA, says, "It's going to foreign workers and usually at the expense of wages for American workers."

Chmielenski's group advocates for lower immigration levels.

He says employers should seek American workers first, before hiring foreigners.

But recruiters at Denison Landscaping say they are exhausting all of their options.

Chmielenski says, "When you hear that - it's just that they don't want to pay them the amount that would make the job enticing for those who want to work."
