Yesterday, the U.S. Supreme Court issued a tie decision that keeps in place a ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit blocking the Administration’s efforts to grant millions of undocumented persons reprieve from deportation. The 4-4 decision upholds a lawsuit brought by Texas and 25 other states that sued to block President Obama’s Executive Action granting the reprieve.
In response to the court’s ruling, Western Growers issued a statement today calling on Congress to introduce comprehensive immigration reform legislation granting legal status to agriculture workers and for the introduction of a new visa program to ensure the future flow of labor for farmers.
