Today, the House Judiciary Committee began a mark-up of H.R. 4092 “The AG Act” (Rep. Bob Goodlatte). This is the first step in the legislative process as the House begins consideration of immigration legislation. The mark-up of the AG Act has recessed for today and will continue tomorrow with consideration of the Legal Workforce Act (Rep. Lamar Smith) to follow. 

Today, Western Growers President & CEO Tom Nassif joined leaders from Chobani, Walmart and The American Hotel & Lodging Association on a panel to discuss immigration policy solutions that serve the interests of America, especially its workers and their families.

The event, Leading the Way: A New Approach to American Immigration, was hosted by National Immigration Forum and brought together faith, law enforcement, business pioneers and others for a constructive conversation on immigration.

On July 17, 2017, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) released a revised version of Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification. Employers may now use the new form or continue using the prior Form I-9 with a revision date of 11/14/16 N through September 17, 2017. However, the new form with a revision date of 07/17/17 N must be used on and after September 18, 2017. Employers are encouraged to start using the new form right away to avoid potential non-compliance after the September 17 deadline.
