Nassif Discusses Ag Immigration Policy during National Immigration Forum Event

Today, Western Growers President & CEO Tom Nassif joined leaders from Chobani, Walmart and The American Hotel & Lodging Association on a panel to discuss immigration policy solutions that serve the interests of America, especially its workers and their families.

The event, Leading the Way: A New Approach to American Immigration, was hosted by National Immigration Forum and brought together faith, law enforcement, business pioneers and others for a constructive conversation on immigration.
