Farm Bureau Ready to Work with Rep. Zoe Lofgren, New Chair of House Immigration Subcommittee

Fri, 18 Jan 2019 11:44:14 CST

Farm Bureau Ready to Work with Rep. Zoe Lofgren, New Chair of House Immigration Subcommittee The American Farm Bureau Federation today commended Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.), the new chair of the House Immigration Subcommittee, for setting a high priority on solving the agricultural labor crisis. Farm Bureau praised her latest legislation addressing issues related to workers currently engaged in agricultural production.


“The labor shortage is a major constraint to farm production and growth across the country, and solving this problem is a priority for Farm Bureau,” AFBF President Zippy Duvall said. “Rep. Lofgren’s bill addresses one key aspect of the problem, the legal status of so many of our workers. We are pleased that, at the start of the 116th Congress, Chairwoman Lofgren has underscored the importance of this critical issue. We are ready to work with Rep. Lofgren and members on both sides of the aisle to provide a path to legalization for our workers and develop a guest worker program that meets the needs of growers in all sectors of agriculture, now and in the future.”
