Nebraska lawmakers last week approved a resolution calling on Congress to pass comprehensive Immigration Reform.  Nebraska Cattlemen Association’s Legislative Director Laura Field says her group backed the measure since it was introduced. She says it was the final vote by Senators as they finished up the main run of their session Thursday night.

Field says the livestock and dairy industries need more than a seasonal worker program but one that calls for a pathway to citizenship for those immigrant laborers who want to stay in the country and work on ag operations.

The Nebraska resolution calls for improvements to border security and following that a way for illegal immigrants to become eligible for a process to become lawful residents. It calls on Congress to enact legislation similar to what the Senate passed last year.
