It has taken much effort and many hours of hard work and negotiation by the Agriculture Workforce Coalition, the Agricultural Coalition for Immigration Reform and the National Council of Agricultural Employers to get Senate Bill 744, “The Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act” to the Senate floor for consideration this month.

Western Growers President and CEO Tom Nassif made another trip to Washington, D.C. this week to generate support for Senate Bill 744, “The Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act.”  The agriculture provisions of the bill represent our best hope to secure a remedy that will legalize our existing workforce and provide a way to secure workers in the future.

Immigration

Immigration has been a critical issue for Western Growers members. For years, we have fought for a legal and stable workforce that not only supports our industry but ensures those who have worked along side our members are treated with decency and respect.
