Nebraska Dairy Group Hoping For Immigration Bill Passing

Immigration reform legislation has already passed the Senate but is mired down in the House. Nebraska State Dairy Association members are hoping Congress will approve comprehensive immigration legislation that includes a guest worker or ag labor program. Association Executive Director Rod Johnson says they’re watching House movement of the legislation very closely.

One of the contentious issues for House members is how to or if to legalize the illegal immigrants that are already in the country. Johnson says whatever they decide, the ag worker program is crucial for his industry as they need more than seasonal workers.

Besides the legalization problem, some Representatives are concerned with the need for better border security.
