National Council of Farmer Cooperatives Express Disappointment in House's Immigration Compromise

Wed, 27 Jun 2018 12:13:38 CDT

National Council of Farmer Cooperatives Express Disappointment in House's Immigration Compromise The National Council of Farmer Cooperatives released the following statement, today, on behalf of its president and CEO, Chuck Conner, who expressed in the text below his disappointment in the lack of provisions related to agricultural labor in the House of Representative's recent Immigration Bill compromise.



"We are disappointed that immigration legislation under consideration by the House of Representatives later today will not include provisions to address the labor crisis faced by America’s farmers and ranchers. Over the past few weeks, several members of Congress have worked tirelessly to include provisions in the package that would create a workable guest worker program and address agriculture’s need for an authorized workforce. We specifically applaud Reps. Jeff Denham (R-Calif.), David Valadao (R-Calif.), and Dan Newhouse (R-Wash.) for making significant progress to include long-overdue improvements to our untenable situation. Despite this progress, dynamics beyond their control or ours prevented inclusion of these provisions in the Leadership’s compromise bill. We continue to believe a proposal that addresses agriculture’s labor needs can garner majority support from House members if brought to a floor vote."
