Today in Greeley Colo., leaders from the faith, business and law enforcement communities met with the office of Rep. Cory Gardner to urge the Congressman to act on immigration reform legislation. The meeting was moderated by WG Senior Director of Government Affairs Ken Barbic and included several WG members: Bob Sakata of Sakata Farms, David Petrocco of Petrocco Farms, and Glenn Hirakata of Hirakata Farms. The WG contingent stressed the needs of agriculture in immigration reform.
This is one of many events that are being held throughout the country during the August recess of Congress designed to encourage individual members to pass immigration reform when they get back to work. Look for an event in your area and please participate.
