Immigration Reform Tough in House

Last week the Senate voted 68 to 32 to approve immigation reform legislation.  Chris Galen with the National Milk Producers Federation says they were pleased with the passage.  However, they anticipate much different language in the House which will make passage tough and will complicate the reconsilation of the bills.

Galen says the best part of the Senate bill is it provides for year round agricultural labor and fixes problems with the present system which only provided for seasonal workers.

Galen says the Senate did leave out the controversial e-verify program so that will need to be fixed in the House version.  There also needs to be a way for employers to verify workers are legal.
