The Western Growers family mourns the passing of Jon Vessey, patriarch of Vessey and Company Inc. of Holtville, Calif., following a battle with cancer.  He passed away peacefully on June 7 surrounded by family and loved ones.   Vessey was 70 years old.   Memorial Services will be held at 10:00 a.m. on June 21, at the Barbara Worth Country Club in Holtville.

Jon Vessey was a visionary and innovator in the fresh produce industry who embodied the very highest standards of integrity and character.

Many members of the House on both sides of the aisle have expressed the need to pass legislation fixing our broken immigration system. While the Senate took action by passing S. 744, the House has yet to pass a single bill to reform our immigration system. With 26 legislative days remaining until the House adjourns for its August recess, the urgency for action mounts as a key window for action closes.

Recap of immigration reform action by the U.S. House of Representatives for the day ending June 10, 2014:

Bills passed: 0

 

It has been 348 days since the Senate passed S. 744 with no action by the full House.

As June 10, 2014, there are only 26 scheduled legislative days left to pass immigration reform before the House adjourns for its August recess.
