South Dakota Dairy Group Official Hoping Immigration Bill Passes

South Dakota Dairy Group Official Hoping Immigration Bill Passes

House Judiciary Committee Chair, Congressman Bob Goodlatte wants tougher enforcement on the recent surge in immigrants seeking asylum at U.S. ports of entry. South Dakota Dairy Producers Association Executive Director Roger Sheibe says his group backs that effort and doesn’t think it will hurt immigration legislative reform efforts in the House.

Chairman Goodlatte has authored immigration reform legislation that passed out of committee calling for a new ag worker program that would allow up to 500,000 temporary agricultural laborers in the U.S. each year.  Scheibe says tougher border enforcement may actually help spur efforts to get that measure passed.

Scheibe is hoping when Congress returns to session next month they’ll get the immigration bill passed.
