Western Growers President & CEO Tom Nassif was published in this morning’s edition of the Wall Street Journal.

In his op-ed titled, “Why Governors Need an Immigration Plan,” Nassif introduces a novel plan for achieving real movement on immigration reform: “Who can break the gridlock and establish genuine bipartisan consensus?

Who can get Congress to finally embrace a reasonable and defensible compromise on immigration? I believe the time has come to look to current and former state governors as potential arbiters of this crisis.”

Yesterday, the International Trade Commission (ITC) released an analysis of the likely impact of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement on the U.S. economy. The release prompted Western Growers’ President and CEO Tom Nassif to issue a statement reiterating our support for the trade deal which would achieve a higher level of fairness between American farmers and their TPP trading partners through tariff reductions and potentially more favorable Sanitary and Phytosanitary (SPS) measures.
