Agriculture Groups Continue Push for Immigration Reform in Congress

March 7, 2014

NMPF continues to push immigration reform efforts on Capitol Hill. Recently, the organization co-hosted a briefing for congressional offices with other agricultural organizations, and the Partnership for a New American Economy, to highlight agriculture’s struggle with the nation’s current immigration system. Among the speakers was a dairy farmer who spoke about the challenges he faces with securing workers and the inadequacies of the H-2A visa program for the dairy industry.

In the coming weeks, NMPF will focus its efforts on continued outreach to House members, particularly those in the Republican majority whose support will be necessary for immigration reform’s success.
