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. Key among the provisions of this bill is an agricultural component to meet the needs of our industry, namely, ensuring a qualified, legal and available workforce now and for the future. The time has come for our best efforts to move this bill through the Senate and bring similar legislation through the House.

This effort requires financial assistance from supporters like you that know the importance of immigration reform for agriculture.  Please join us for the luncheon at Sunnysiide Country Club in Fresno on June 25th to hear more about the efforts to achieve comprehensive immigration reform.  An update from our allies in Washington, D.C. will be provided by Craig Regelbrugge of ACIR, and Monte Lake of CJ Lake.  Additionally, we are working with Senators Dianne Feinstein and Marco Rubio to address us by phone.  Please RSVP to (949) 885-2256, and make your donations payable to ACIR.  You may bring checks with you to the event or mail to:  1775 N. Fine, Fresno, CA 93727, attention: ACIR.  We look forward to seeing you on the 25th.
