Balancing illegal immigration and agriculture workers

Balancing illegal immigration and agriculture workers

States that crack down on illegal immigrants should also help farmers who need seasonal labor, the nation's largest farm lobbying group said Tuesday.

From the L.A. Times:

States that crack down on illegal immigrants should also help farmers who need seasonal labor, the nation's largest farm lobbying group said Tuesday.

And if Congress doesn't overhaul immigration, farmers will assist the federal government in helping states create programs that give growers access to enough legal labor, under a policy approved at the annual convention of the American Farm Bureau Federation.

The policy retains the Farm Bureau's long-held view that immigration policy should be set by the federal government.
