Immigration debate is moving in the U.S. Senate. And the National Milk Producer’s Federation is pleased much of what is being considered includes guest workers for farm workers and a path to citizenship although the finish line to a final measure is still a ways off. Federation’s Chris Galen says while there’s much work to do, at least they’re moving forward.
Galen says both the Senate and House are working on separate pieces of immigration legislation. He says there are several hot button issues in both bills that need to be ironed out.
Galen says while the Senate is trying to get their immigration bill passed by July 4, House leadership says they hope to finish immigration sometime this year.
