Agriculture Secretary Wants House Action Soon On Immigration Bill

Agriculture Secretary Wants House Action Soon On Immigration Bill

Immigration reform which passed the Senate last year is stuck now in the House. The debate seems to be over a piecemeal way to complete the bill or the  comprehensive approach taken by the Senate. Ag Secretary Tom Vilsack says it doesn’t really matter which form the measure takes, the House needs to get it done so it can be sent to conference committee and then to the President.

Vilsack says lack of immigration reform is hurting U.S. agriculture both directly and specifically. He says it’s important not only for the dairy industry but for other sectors of American agriculture.

Vilsack says if that continues it becomes a matter of national security.
